    Default My anti-gun neighbor's husband apologized to me today

    This morning, I paid some much needed attention to my car's windows. While working on the driver's side, the husband of my anti-gun neighbor who thinks the Gadsden flag is racist was on a walk about the neighborhood. He smiled and nodded my way and I nodded back, and after a few more paces, he decided he wanted to point out some irony. He stopped, turned on his heels, and came back in my direction. From across the street, he called out to me.

    "I'm glad you have all those guns now, you might have to defend the whole block for us!"

    I looked up, smiled and nodded again, and went back to the task at-hand, grinning to myself. I couldn't help but chuckle internally at his audacity, and my own fortune for having the pleasure of actually hearing this expressed directly to me. He drastically over-estimates his position on my list of priorities - and local allies. I don't think he knows how many of his neighbors also own firearms and carry regularly, or the fact that online memes refer to his house as a grocery store.

    After a couple seconds of continuing to wipe the windows, I glanced up and he was still looking over at me, with an anticipatory look on his face. He didn't just want to express himself, he wanted a dialogue. Okay.

    "Funny how that works, huh?"
    "Yeah, heheheh...nobody's, uh -"
    "I seemed a little weird before, but now, you're looking at my house going, 'hey that's the place we want to be near.'" I couldn't help but let a little sneer slide into my voice.
    "I'm sorry, but you're right - I have to say, you were right all along."

    We exchanged additional pleasantries and he let us know that they are doing well in terms of health and keeping busy. Good to know.

    Every person who said they are coming to my house due to me having guns I told them, "i'll pile you up in the front yard with everyone else who said that."
    Facts all come with points of view, facts dont do what I want them to.

    I'd say pretty darn positive. The sheep woke up, at least a little bit, and acknowledged the reality of the world we live in. It's a start.

    Next time you speak offer to talk through a gun purchase if he's interested.

    Could have asked him why you should bother protecting him and his family when he voted to remove your right to do so.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    The guy may be thinking about becoming a gun owner. Next time ask him if he has thought about buying a gun? If he says yes, maybe you can enlighten him. Turn him into a gun owner and a Republican. While some of your interactions may have been very negative, never miss an opportunity to turn him. Remember how we met, and your distrust of cops?

    Very positive interaction. Don't know your history with him but he admitted he was wrong all along. Let bygones by bygone. Move forward. If we gain another vote, where is the negative?
