Sunday's Blog of the Week

This weeks Blog of the Week is The Gun Blogs, an online community for gun bloggers. The Gun Blogs was started by Say Uncle and is a very interesting concept:

Welcome to The Gun Blogs. This site is intended to be open to all and welcomes posting by all. If you've ever thought about starting your own gun blog but didn't want the trouble of setting up your own site or didn't think you'd stick with it, now is your chance to try it out. And it's free.
There are some simple rules, not the least of which is that all content is gun related. There is always something new to read.

As an example, a recent post by KC Steve:

In my experience there are three basic types of 'antis' (anti-gun people).

Type 1 Antis are the most common. Their dislike of guns is based primarily on ignorance. Most of their information on guns has come to them from movies and television. They're reflexively anti-gun, having never given the matter much thought.

Type 2 Antis are driven by emotion. Many of them have deep personal reasons for their stance, often involving the loss of a loved one.

Type 3 Antis are driven by ideology. This is a subtle difference from the Type 2's but a crucial one. Type 3's know what the Second Amendment says, and what it means and that's why they hate it. They want to be the privileged elite it guards against.

So, how should you deal with these three types?
Steve continues with ideas on interacting with each of the types of "Anti's" he identified.

If you are interested in a variety of topics and authors, head over to The Gun Blogs and check them out. You won't be disappointed.

As you stated in a previous comment: "I think you and I may agree more than you think we do."

Exactly. I'm not really anti-gun. I'm just pro-regulation.

Jr, sorry for being thick as a plank, but I take it that this is your place, correct? Thank you for making this flaming knee jerk evil bleeding heart liberal feel so welcome.

I hope to be able to hang out here a lot, and I'd like to see this site get lots of hits from across the political spectrum, and that you sell lots of adverizing.

Yes Ma'am, A Keyboard and a .45 is my little 1/4 acre of the internet.

I hope you do keep hanging around and commenting as you see fit.

We may end up convincing you that we already have way too many regulations, and that many of our current firearm laws need to be repealed.

Well, you can start with one (piece of regulation that you think is excessive...)
