What to say when you’re asked to teach a new shooter (or any shooter for that matter)

We’ve all seen it since the election: a flood of requests from our lefty, formerly gun-antagonistic acquaintances asking us to teach them to shoot.  While my first reaction had been, “Sure”, on the assumption that having them as shooters is better than not*, Marty Hayes suggested a better comeback to me last week: “I’d be happy to if you’re an NRA member”.

Because the only reason they even have the option of learning to shoot now is because of the NRA, and not the ACLU.

So that’s my answer from now on.

 

*For the record, I think their fear of government-sanctioned violence against them because of their beliefs or lifestyle is silly, but having a lefty as a shooter seems better than not having them as shooters.
