Yes, we do need to win the hearts and minds of others. Some of the ways we can do that are by introducing people to shooting and by being good ambassadors for shooting and guns -- and thus helping to dispel the myths, held by many non-shooters and fostered by our opponents, that those of us who have guns are knuckle dragging Neanderthals.
One of the ways we most assuredly can not win hearts and minds is by calling those who disagree with us names -- like "enemy of the people."
