Politically speaking, I try to keep my distance from issues concerning gun control. As a former soldier and born-and-bred Oklahoma girl, I'm more familiar with firearms than most people (and in fact I own two rifles, one an old Czech rifle my grandfather brought home from WWII, and the other a birthday gift from an old flame). But as a mother and a citizen (I was active in the Million Mom March campaign when my daughter was a toddler), I am generally for stricter gun laws.
That being said, shooting a firearm is an experience that everyone should try at least once. Not only will it give you a better understanding of how weapons work, it might give you some perspective on why so many people are literally up in arms about the gun control issue.
