83. No, but the Democratic party changed my mind on Gun Control
I was pro gun control until about 1994/1995.

Thats when gun control peaked and the Clinton/Gore gun grab began.

At the beginning I supported the effort however the more I looked into it the less it made sense to to me.

Then when I saw the staggering losses the Democratic party took due to their attack on guns I started to swing to the pro gun side.

Over the years, I've become more and more pro 2nd ammendment...Both as an intrinsic belief and as I watch the damage that ant-gunners continual to inflict on the party.

As for the forum, it helps solidify my beliefs. When I visit here Im almost suprised at how thin the antigun arguments are. Indeed most anti-gun arguments are generally just insults shrouded in a veneer of self-righteonous.

Interestinly, I've only got one person on my ignore list and thats a troll to this forum. He's on my ignore list because his posts never contribute anything of value, and is almost always a baseless anti-gun insult.
