Not sure if this should go in the firearms section or general discussion but figured the topic was extended family so I will put it here. Every new years day we go to my in-laws house for a luncheon with the extended family (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) Every year I have to endure at least a couple hours of the city dwelling gun control advocates my wife is unfortunately related to. And every year three or four of them will try to gang up on me and spew their gun control tripe until I tell them to go f*** themselves and they get pissed off at me for another year. Last year I listened to it for a couple hours until my wife told me it was time to go. At that point I stood up and lifted my outer shirt to show I sat there the whole time locked and loaded and it didnt harm them one bit. Of course the feedback was instant and filled with rage/fear. I laughed as I left. I know of one couple that will not be attending this year because I am going to be there (how cool is THAT!!) but the others will be and I need some good facts and talking points other than "We have the guns so go f*** yourself" response I usually give. My wife has requested that I try to engage in discussion instead of pissin them off. I dont want to but because I do love the girl and want to respect her request I would like to get some input from others in an attempt to passify everyone this holiday season. So, my monkey friends.......help!! I need some good data and talking points. Yes, I ran multiple searches and have found the same old data that has been flung for the past 10 years but have found no real current info other than the Fed shitten bricks because people are buying guns now at a faster rate than ever before. So, can anyone give me some input?
