Hi everyone, I'm a new G19 owner. I have always been a pretty anti-gun person. I have a problem with the "wild west" nature of "a gun in every hand." But, I don't consider myself a closed-minded person and as times change, and circumstances change, I slowly found myself re-evaluating my positions and leaning more towards the conclusion that there were more and more criminals getting guns and that I'd rather not be prey during a Craigslist sale or during a late night movie with the wife. I can't say that I'm fully on-board with every NRA position out there, but I am in agreement that removing weapons from law-abiding citizens doesn't help the problem of criminals getting their hands on weapons. This is so very much a hot topic and I'm probably more left leaning than many on this forum that I'll probably keep mostly quiet and use this forum for the wonderful learning tool that it can be. Greetings to everyone from Sacramento, CA! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
