Hey all, I am a citizen with progressive values from Southern New Hampshire. Recently, I've become interested in the concept of advocacy and awareness for gun ownership among citizens who hold progressive ideals. Due to a disability, I am unable to own firearms myself. However, I am deeply committed to this cause and believe that it's crucial to engage in open dialogue about responsible gun ownership.
As a progressive, I am well aware of the divisive nature of concerns regarding the growing threat of far-right violence against the left, the apparent sympathies often expressed by law enforcement agencies throughout the country, and our government's seemingly held sympathies towards the right due to its display of reluctance to deal with the threat of far-right extremism. My goal is to work with other like-minded individuals to become more comfortable with responsible firearms ownership and to open dialogue with gun owners on the right to reach common ground amidst our polarized society.
I believe it's important to acknowledge that, regardless of how many people on the left feel about guns, under these political conditions, it's not preferable for one side, many of whom seem bent on the annihilation of liberals and our ideals, to have all the guns. I am not advocating for war; I am merely a concerned citizen who wants to open a dialogue with gun owners and share ideas on how we can work towards responsible policies and ownership.
I want to make it known that citizens on the left aren't all bent on taking away anyone's rights to protect themselves, just as it is my belief that many citizens on the right don't all want to eliminate us. It is my hope by working together, we can foster understanding and bridge the gap between our differing perspectives while promoting responsible gun ownership and policies that ensure the safety and well-being of all citizens.
