2nd Amendment Speed Dating

For all you picky #foreveralones:

2nd-Amendment-Speed-Dating

I saw another good one where she answered “Hi-Point” and he called NEXT haha.

Does a girl’s taste in firearms and/or general knowledge of them factor in for you?  Is it just enough that she doesn’t hate them?  Maybe just as long as she doesn’t wear notch hats, tactical arm tape, a life helmet backpack, and carry a Hi-Point?

Roy has the right idea: http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/edu7.htm

As I told a guy that said, “Wow! What a great collection!”

“Yep, that’s the wedding that he never had.”

Except, anyone who would utter “guns are icky” would think a guy saying “Glock? 1911? XD? M&P? FN?” was randomly saying the clinical name for a prescription drug or a bunch of Rammstein songs or something. Same result either way, though.

If she wants you to put a ring on it, she needs to put a sling on it…
Seriously though, I think patience and education will often prevail here. Many women (and people in general) are afraid of guns because they were raised to be, and are ignorant on the subject.

Ignorance leads to fear and misunderstanding. Take the time to show that fine lady that a gun is nothing but a tool, not a self animated, evil killing machine. Also, and yeah this sucks, but often mentioning your interest in firearms on a first date is a great way to not have a second one. It’s a good way to weed out incompatible women, but it’s also a great way to be #foreveralone with your gun collection. Give that lady a little time, and if you’re not a dick about it chances are she’ll come around. In the past several years I’ve had the good fortune to do this with 2 good female friends, and a girlfriend, all of whom live in liberal ass Massachusetts. Those 2 friends both went from being anti-gun/afraid to go on to get their CCPs and first guns. It can be annoying as hell sometimes, but we the good pro 2A people have to be missionaries sometimes and convert these poor heathens. :)

That said, comic was funny, and that’s totally how we all feel sometimes.

In my experience, attitude is far more important than whether she likes or dislikes guns.

To wit, a shitty attitude is going to prevent anyone, but especially a snotty person in a relationship from every opening his or her mind to new possibilities/facts.

Example:

(Question: What do you think about guns?)

Answer 1: “I think its scary that people can buy such big guns and stuff. I mean, there should be better laws because we have so many shootings today, right?”

Synopsis: This attitude can be worked with. It’s an opinion born from ignorance and just parroting the news/media.

Answer 2: “Guns are how delusional men compensate for shortcomings and anyone who would own guns, much less more than one has a screw loose. There’s no reason for a gun in today’s day and age.”

Synopsis: Run away. This girl (or guy) has an attitude problem and has issues with projecting. This opinion is not born from only ignorance, but also a snotty attitude and a deep-seated superiority complex.

In my head I read “Run away” in the same way it was exclaimed by the Monty Python knights. Sound advice.

Agreed, some people do just have a shitty attitude about it and can’t be helped.

Usually though, those people with the snotty/shitty attitude about firearms have that same pompous attitude about other issues. I think many would try to call this a conservative vs. liberal issue, but really an issue of being open minded, like you pointed out:

“To wit, a shitty attitude is going to prevent anyone, but especially a snotty person in a relationship from ever opening his or her mind to new possibilities/facts.”

Some people just aren’t worth helping or working with, unfortunately. And in that case, male or female, yeah, RUN AWAY.

Any female readers here ever have this happen to them with a guy hating on your pro 2A mindset? That would make for a funny story.

I will take attitude over knowledge any day of the week. All that is required is the ability to acknowledge the possibility that under some circumstances there is a chance that you might be wrong, or you might not have all the facts.

I will always choose the person who knows little, but will listen for new information, then re-consider their position (even if they reach their original conclusions again) over the person who is so full of knowledge that they have nothing left to learn. Always.
