Nice

I don't know how I ever missed the Johnny Cash version of that. Yeah, I love music. All of it from oldies to reggae to country and rap. I love classical and indie and alt rock. Really I have 74 gigs of music, it is all there!

Thanks for the videos and participating in my jam session with me lol

Any time

Johnny Cash's last album is phenomenal. My favorite is "I hung my head" but he also covers "hurt", "one", "God's gonna cut you down" and several other great songs.

It's almost as if that album was Johnny's last breath... It makes the hairs on my neck stand up when I think about it.

If you like that cover, you'll probably like Willy Nelson's cover of Coldplay's "The Scientist". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzFQDhuxXIA

Wow. Epic.

Willie Nelson covering The Scientist was AMAZING. Thank you for that, I do not think I will be able to go back to the Coldplay version now.

How did your meeting at go this morning? Were you able to discuss your thoughts about protecting the 2nd amendment?

I am sure you are discussing this in another thread somewhere, but really, I just want to lay low for a few days and get away from all the yelling lol

The meeting went well, everyone was very friendly.

They were also happy to see a new young face. I did bring up 2nd Amendment preservation lightly but this meeting was mostly about elections next year so I decided I would stay respectful and not push the issue since this was my first time there.

I did make some new friends and found out that my mom keeps the new chairman's child at daycare. Hopefully this helps me become precinct captain for 2014 elections. I plan on meeting with him privately this week and further discussing what he thinks about 2nd amendment preservation. Most of the executive board are NRA members so I like my chances.

Great to hear. I wanted to bounce an idea off you...

Since we are both young activists, I think we can do some work together on this issue.

I am not a gun owner. I have little exposure to guns, I did not grow up around them. That being said, I have always been suspicious of the government so I never wanted to see everyday civilian's guns taken away.

Anyways... I have been trying to bridge the gap with my liberal friends. I saw a thread here a few days ago that promoted the idea of taking a friend shooting day.

I think this is a great way to help people who are not used to being around guns. I think this might be a good idea for gun owners here to try, so maybe share the idea with some people you know who own guns. If you know anyone who is not used to guns, maybe see if they want to go shooting. You might not turn anyone into a gun enthusiast, but it could help them feel more comfortable around guns.

On the flip side, I am working on spreading information to the liberals I know. I love the example of Switzerland being an armed society yet having low crime rates so I use that one a lot.

So let me ask you this, as a gun enthusiast; if you could tell someone who is not used to guns or lacks the exposure one factoid about guns what would you tell them (or what would you like me to tell them for you!? lol)?

It depends on the person

I've grown up around guns, my Dad has had me shooting as long as I can remember and living in Tennessee I've never been around many anti gun people. Almost anyone who supports gun control here keeps their mouth shut.

Like always, your argument will depend on the person and propriety of their beliefs and situation. If they are young liberals or someone who is suspicious of "the man" like we are I would focus on genocide after disarmament and especially Hitler being pro gun ownership but also enforcing national gun registration for 10-15 years before he started disarming his enemies. I would say something like

"Hitler was a popular elected official. Hitler also was very pro gun for Germans which is what many people do not know, but he also enforced his version of National gun registration for 10-15 years while remaining pro gun ownership. He used the registration to disarm his enemies just before the Holocaust. This is why I'm against Feinstein's registration, because Hitler kept peace with registration for many many years before he used it to kill millions. Gun registration is the path to genocide over and over and over in history."

Or I would focus on the possibility of the war on terror turning domestic. That is my single greatest fear since we have the PATRIOT Act and NDAA which strips the Rights of supposed terrorists. What if gun owners are the new terrorists? I guess that could be an argument not to own guns but I think people should consider the possibility. I would use this approach when someone says our Gov. would never become tyrannical. Show them facts that they already did away with privacy rights and due process and are breaking the 9th amendment using the 1st amendment to try to destroy the 2nd amendment. Try to convince them the 2nd amendment is about tyrannical Gov. and show the our own Gov. is becoming just that. This makes gun ownership not a Right but a duty for anyone hoping to save the American Republic.

If the person is trusting in Government and would find the idea of our own Government going tyrannical silly and absurd, then I would focus on their fears and show them how gun ownership can dispel those fears. I would say something like:

"What is your plan if someone invades your home? The economy is getting worse and people are desperate. You have a nice (house, car, whatever they cherish), there's probably a bad guy that's thought of taking it before. Does that scare you? It scares me, that's why I keep a 38 near me when I sleep. If the gun registration passes and you do not have a firearm, you're making yourself an easy target. You would be much safer if criminals didn't know who had guns. Would you rather feel defenseless in a home invasion or would you rather have control in your hands with your own gun? Are you scared or prepared?"

Then you can show either of them how easy and safe gun ownership is for a responsible person. Most people like control and almost everyone I've ever shot with had a good time (I do live in the south though). If anything it should be an interesting learning experience for them and they can't unlearn what you tell them. I hope this helps.

"Pool Shootin"

Jim Croce Don't Mess Around With Jim Lyrics

Uptown got its' hustlers, the bowry got its' bums
And 42nd street got a big Jim Walker
He a pool-shootin son of gun
Yeah he big and dumb as a man can come
But he's stronger than a country hoss
And when the bad folks all get together at night you know they all call big Jim "boss." Just because

Chorus:
And they say
You don't tug on superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off an ole lone ranger
And you don't mess around with Jim

Well, out o' south Alabama come a country boy
He said "I'm lookin for a man named Jim"
I am a pool shootin boy
My name is Will McCoy but down home they call me Slim
Well, I'm lookin for the gang of 42nd
I hear he drive a drop-top Cadillac
And last week he took all my money and it may sound funny but I come to get my money
And everybody say jack!

(Chorus)

Well, a hush fell over the pool room as Jimmy come boppin in off the street
And when the cuttin was done they only thought it wasn't blood, it was the soles of the big man's feet
Yeah he was cut in 'bout a hundred places and he was shot in couple more
And you better believe they sung a different kind o' story when Big Jim hit the floor

Chorus # 2
And they say you don't tug on superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off an ole lone ranger
And you don't mess around with Slim

(Repeat Chorus # 2)
