My friend Rhiannon and I have been discussing gun control for many years now. We are pretty good friends and she thinks of me as a wimpy liberal and I call her a gun nut. Neither assertion is quite right but it gives a sense of our stance towards each other on this issue. For me, the true gun nut is one who ascribes nearly mystical signficance to the power of guns and the right to possess them. Rhiannon is more down to earth than that.

The problem with discussing a topic like that (where there is a pretty strong difference of opinion) is that it's impossible to bring enough information to the table in a discussion. We decided it might be interesting if we each brought our own sources of information about this to a web page resource that people could consult at their leisure.

I call my EDC .357 "kindness," so if I ever do have to kill some one, I'll be killing them with kindness.
