I may have mentioned before, but I am currently a little over half-way through my MBA coursework. My recent business law class had a student who worked for a gun manufacturer, and the topic of gun rights came up. My initial statement was that while a world without guns would probably be a cool place, the notion of in-inventing something does not exist within the confines of reality. Below I have pasted another classmate's response along with my counter.
Note that I did not use any cliches that the other side is used to hearing. Instead, I met her at her level of comprehension and presented facts. Ultimately there are still people who are still trying to figure things out, and like this one, can be won over. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing.
