    People need to know that gun culture is more than guns. Please share this one.

    I particularly like the part about thwarting an oppressive gov't. Now there's a concept that's foreign and unconscionable to today's political goliath!

    It's truly a shame that most close-minded anti-gun people will dismiss this without watching it, simply because they aren't a part of it.

    I liked the video,but to me the gun culture is basically that small town diner that has decent food and that everybody in town loves.
    In other words,an old standby that people should cherish.

    This guy has several really good videos. I really like how he presents things and he does it in a non-threatening way.

    That's OK. They aren't who I'm trying to reach.

    There is a significant percentage of the population that vary their opinion on gun control over time. They are getting the message that those in gun culture are a bunch of wackos that have no common sense. I think that needs to be countered in a way that doesn't put people off because of an angry or spiteful delivery.

    The "angry gun person" vids serve a purpose, too, but there are plenty of those being put out there by talented YouTubers already. I'm hoping to offer an alternative angle that might better influence the political center.

    I think the problem with viewing guns and gun culture in this manner is that many people agree that it is an old standby, but not one that is needed any longer. It's out of date. No one has tried to take over our country in the last 250ish years, so no one needs guns anymore. Well, except maybe the hunters. And they just need 3 rounds for their rifles, or a handful of slugs for their shotgun.

    Gun culture is so much more than "the small town diner that everyone loves", as stated in the video. It is relevant to today's society. Our population is so great in this country, I don't think we could possibly high enough LEOs to "keep everyone safe"; even if it was their job. It is the act of carrying on the spirit of our founders, of what they believed in, and exercising the rights and freedoms we are afforded in this country. The message (and act) of self-reliance is an important one, and guns and gun culture are one of the best tools of the trade to effect it.

    To the OP: great video! Sounds like this is actually you, from your posts? Will be sharing on FB when I get home!

    I think by "old stand by", pawcatch meant something tried and true, not a by gone thing / past tense thing.

    Yes,that's what I meant.People still love that old diner and prefer it to the new fast food places.That old diner is still very relevant.

    I understand, and I agree. My point still stands though, that as granddads are passing away, dads aren't taking the time to bring the kids to the old diner. They settle for the closest McD's instead. Small town thinking does not pervade in big city America.
