So, buck460XVR, you say we need more positive role model spokesmen? I agree. Aside from not giving business to jerks, we might consider what our own opportunities are to make favorable impressions.
Take an anti shooting, at a well-run range, for instance.
Point the anti who accuses gun owners of homophobia toward the Pink Pistols organization.
Don't lower ourselves to the rabid levels of many of our opponents.
