This isn't posted to be political, just funny, in an ironic sort of way. A tyrannical leader of a 3rd world country that s houts "death to America" cares about US citizens getting hurt and supports gun control? He wants the UN to investigate the US about their gun laws. This is the kind of story you would think would be in The Onion instead of CBS. What's next, a statement from Kim Jong Un calling for the US to impose gun control too? rolleyes:

The United States does not need gun control.
Iran needs to overthrow the Ayatollahs and their toxic control.

LOL, the greatest deterrent to terrorism is an armed population. Every single concealed carrier has the capability to stop any terrorist attack. In fact, I believe it is the patriotic duty of every American to carry.

My wife does not like to carry. She feels uncomfortable with a gun, although she can shoot. It will be a serious threat against one of her children or grandchildren before she raises a gun against another human being. However, I have told her she should carry if only to have a weapon available to hand to someone else, because in a terror attack it will be the lack of guns that gets people killed.

Unfortunately, there's a large segment of our society that are being manipulated to forget that point! They believe we're better off unarmed and uneducated.

My wife is the same way... however I have no doubt of her resolve to use whatever tools at her disposal that she needed to if she needed to defend herself or someone else.

Separating it from the political side is a good way to start. By that I mean keep politics out of it, never mention the NRA to someone new to shooting (even though they do have educational programs), treat shooting no differently than you would any other sport.

Politics is a me against them, us against the enemy game for the vast majority. It always has been. Any mention of the political side sets much of the population on the defensive. In many instances, members of both left and right treat their political positions as a religion. To be taken on faith and to be evangelized. Question that religion and it doesn't matter what facts you have, you are wrong.

On the NRA, I could say see above point, :D . Mentioning the NRA is a quick way to alienate someone who only knows of shooting through the news and pop culture. Rightly or wrongly they are a big lightening rod that turns people off immediately. Many who would other wise be at least open get turned off.

Finally; Yeah its good to be safe, but come one. There is such a thing as overly safe. With any activity there is always a risk, that's life. The more risk you take out of life the more fun you take out. Yeah the basics are important. Treat every firearm as if its always loaded, don't point it at things you don't want a hole in, finger off the trigger unless shooting... beyond that don't be so safety safety safety, lighten up a little bit. That scares alot of people and only serves to reinforce the belief that all guns are dangerous no matter what and should be banned or highly controlled by government.

Basically many on our side alienate or scare off alot of otherwise open people right out of the gate in my opinion.

Perhaps the Ayatollah has heard of Admiral Yamamoto?

"You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass." Admiral Yamamoto, 1941

Fake news. My barest minimum is fox and they don't have a story. More of Breitbart and their work for the Russians.

I found at least 12 separate news sources talking about this subject.
I say good for the Ayatollah. It's nice when people from other countries are concerned
for our welfare and safety. He's probably not a bad guy if you take the time to get to know him.
