Unique Request

I am currently looking for an event, within the next three weeks or so, that I can take some people to in order to talk about guns and a bit about values etc.. I have a group of students who are anti-gun, but for a college assignment must go and talk to people who share a different set of beliefs. This would be an opportunity to showcase the good side of firearms, but I need an event that would be suited to that kind of thing. Any suggestions?

Even if its not a perfect match if after some event a few people were willing to speak about their beliefs that would be fine too.

Thanks

I'm not sure exactly what EHinson is lookiing for . Is it for the students to fully participate in the shooting event ? Or to observe a positive shooting event , and interact with the participants ?

If the latter , contact the event director at BRGC about having your group observe for a cpl hours, and interact with willing members and participants during breaks .

I am looking for anywhere that is about an hour and a half from college park. The people I'm taking wont need to be shooting or anything, but are looking for a civil discussion about NRA type values.

NRA type values? I think you can have a discussion about (1) defense of self, loved ones, property, etc, (2) sport shooting, and (3) hunting without even mentioning the NRA.

That is the assignment given to them. I personally believe in all of that, but they don't so I am looking for an event for them.

I was just making the point that the NRA is a lightning rod for some. You can talk about the 2nd Amendment without talking about the NRA.

Maybe an ASI shoot? Positive, low stress, friendly, not 100% old white guys. I’m at one right now! Actual women-folk smiling and having fun.
