Naomi Wolf’s story is similar to my experience. I used to be ambivalent about guns and then went full anti-gun because I was ignorant. I don’t profess to be a gun expert now but back then I was surrounded by people that kept telling me how evil guns were. I decided to research guns and took a hunter safety course and discovered that everyone in my social circle was full of it. Yes, guns are dangerous but firearm safety and education gave me a healthy respect for guns and the need for 2A. What I’ve found is there’s a LOT of willful ignorance among the anti-gun crowd. Their solution is that if you remove the gun you remove societal problems, which is the big lie that Leftists keep telling everyone.
