My mom is in her 70s and she's a semi-retired preacher (she still teaches classes and does sermons every so often when invited to by the church). My parents grew up in England in the 1930s-40s. They're very conservative (especially my dad; don't get him started on Obama). But they've never been into guns, just not interested. I learned shooting on my own as an adult because my dad isn't into it. They're fine with me being into guns, because they know how much I enjoy it. It just doesn't interest them. Anyway, we were having dinner at their house last Sunday, and the conversation turned to the goings on in Haiti. News of all the looting and fighting, people robbing each other and beating each other up and so on. My mom put her fork down and said "There's only one way to deal with situations like that. They need to make a law where if anyone is looting or robbing or hurting other people, they should just be shot on sight!" That was completely unexpected. I guess being a woman of a 'higher calling', so to speak, doesn't mean you don't have the common sense to deal with reality. The only thing I could think of to say was "Give that lady a gun!" Has your mom or dad ever floored you with something you never expected to hear?
