Long story short, I believe the biggest barrier that we face to advancing gun rights isn't politicians, but swaying the vast majority of the general public who are indifferent, or on the fence about guns.
What I've found is, if you're just a normal person who likes to shoot, and talks about it in a normal way, most folks are pretty receptive.
However, if you're rocking a "Hillary for Prison" shirt and whatnot (i.e. dressed in a way that automatically politicizes a conversation) the general public is going to be much less receptive to your message.
If you want to make something "normal" you've got to be normal.

Check out this episode of The Art of Manliness with Mike Rowe. Mike is a guy that really resonates with me, in that he tells people that they don't have to go to college and get deeply in debt to be successful. I'm the guy that he warns you about. I went to college because I thought I had to, then I dropped out, and don't have a diploma, but I've still got all the debt.
I'm also someone who used to work a desk job, and hated every minute of it. I quit, got a job where I'm up and moving, working with my hands, and getting dirty, and I couldn't be happier. Turns out, I like being challenged, and I like doing things that require me to think.
