So I've been married quite happily for 13+ years, but was floored to find out today that my youngest sister in law is an anti. Sheesh.

She and my father in law came over for breakfast, and my wife mentioned that I was going shooting after we ate (I usually go on Saturday mornings). My FIL asked where, and after I told him, my SIL said she had been there with a former boyfriend. Ok so far. Then she added that it was scary - all these people standing around with deadly weapons ("yellow alert, number one!"). My FIL, former Army, told her to imagine being in basic training where there are hundreds of people who have never held a rifle - nothing bad happened then. Then out it same, like it was in slow motion....

"Nooooo ooonneeee rrrreeeaaallly neeeeds aaaaa guuuunn........"

...and that they should require a license just like driving a car does. ("Red alert! Shields!") So I point out that you don't need a DL to buy a car, nor to drive one if you are on public property. She replies that a license should be required to buy a gun....

I didn't feel like pushing it further, and got ready to go. I wore my 1911 openly while getting the rest of my gear (normally it's IWB) and managed to get a scowl out of her.

Oh well, one more reason to stay away from family gatherings.

Every family has at least one, somewhere. Given the limited real world exposure to firearms among the general populace, this isn't really suprising.

Did you promptly tell her to never set foot in your house again?

Thats what I had to do........................

I feel you man. My whole set of inlaws is anti. Thats MIL, FIL, 3 SIL's, and one of the SIL's kid, he is only 8 but I'm sure they have poisoned him by now. I think grandma would be cool with it though.

Over Christmas I let it slip, well not really I kinda wanted to see the reaction I would get, that I owned "a" gun. Well, one of the sisters in law, eyes wide, mouth agape, and head leaned forward, "You own a gun? And have it in the house?" I dind't bother telling her that the number I really own is in the double digits.

I think next time they are out to visit, I will have to see if she wants to go to the range.

Hey that's fine with me cuz I heard those C++ guys get more chicks

My mom is pretty much anti. I didn't think she was, but once I tell her I want to buy an AK she's all "Nobody should be allowed to have a semiautomatic rifle wah wah wah."

There is one in every crowd.
Link Posted: 2/11/2006 2:23:46 PM EDT
I'm lucky. The closest I've got to anti's in the family all say "I don't see any reason to own one of those", reference to EBR's and machine guns. This is always followed up by "I also don't see why anyone SHOULDN'T be able to own one. If you want one, that's your business."

see thats very funny, my sisters are anti, but when we had a family party and i took out a scoped pellet rifle, my sisters couldnt wait to try it. i would have brought out a real firearm, but i cant shoot firearms on my property.

or if my sisters come in my room and see a gun somewhere they are like "CAN I TOUCH IT" they are anti gun, but are totally fascinated with them, i dont get it. it must be BS media propaganda in chicago.

suprisingly 3 of my sisters are better shots then some of my guy friends that never fired much of anything. after a while most guys didnt want to shoot after my sisters.

edit, my sisters often ask, "is this legal?" "why do you need this?" "what are you going to do with all these guns?" "why do you have so man bullets?"

i'm sorry, its not a funny situation, but its a good way to tell it!

Quick, punch her in the face!

Well, anyone that says 'No one needs a gun'

I reply 'well, when criminals feel that way, I'll agree'

Here's the simple solution.
Take her to the range and let her shoot the AR.
Seems that new shooters just love the AR, I guess they fall for the cool-evil-looking-thing
that's really fun to shoot.
She'll be grinin' for a week.

Agreed. Although in my immediate family there are way too many Fuddites (almost as bad).

Totally true, My experience has been wether it is an "anti" or a duck hunter,
after they shoot "that gun" that our warriors use, it demystifies the whole thing.

I have yet to see anyone continue thier anti EBR stance after shooting one

I wish it was that easy. My inlaws live in rural MN, so shooting is common. My FIL, BIL, and I go shooting pretty much every time we're down there. This particular SIL (Julie), won't touch a "sport utility rifle". She won't touch a 10/22. She won't even try my Winchester 9422, which is perhaps the most innocent looking firearm on the face of the planet.

I think she must be adopted, at least that's what I am going to tell her

My hippie anti sister-in-law ran screaming from the house a number of Christmas's ago when I pulled the 1919 out of the safe to show the brother-in-law. She hasn't been back since.

My sister won't let my nephews visit me. She knows I'll corrupt them. She shouldn't worry about that now, especially since that tragic boating accident a few years ago.

She's hot and must be converted to our side at all costs!!

Is she single, and should I proceed to MN?
Shall I bring flowers and Choclates?
And I will have my AR w/ a LOT of ammo.

My younger brother brought future sil to the family Thanksgiving gathering one year. First of the weekend she starts spouting all the demoncrap stuff about guns/politics/etc.

We broke out our Peace With Superior Firepower lapel buttons and let her glower at us the rest of the weekend. They broke up shortly after - I never did ask what the reason was, but it was certainly just as well for all concerned.

Be nice and offer to take her shooting.

My sons 5th grade teacher(which also goes to our church) was a huge anti Assault weapon lady.

Me being the nice I was took her son shooting with me(AK, AR15 and the Saiga).

Of course he loved it and eventualy I explained how they were not Machine guns and ultimatly got her to shoot the Ar.

She liked it and from that point she quit being Anti-assault weapon.

And no she is not hot(3 kids 40ys old) but she is a nice lady and good friend of the family.

Things I learned is: you have to find out why they are against guns, and convince them they are fun and safe.

Also remember you never ever win anyone over by arguing/jamming your point of view down their throat.

offer to take her shooting and convince her how fun and safe it really is.

Good Luck,
FREE

I would have paid good money to see that go down!



Reminds me of the first time my ex-wife saw the inside of my safe (her and the kids were at my place, the kids had been shooting with me before and wanted to see my newest rifle).
