For those of you who don't know him, please allow me to use his own words to introduce Dean Weingarten:

Dean Weingarten was born into the gun culture. His high school allowed time off for deer season. He started reloading cartridges at age 15 and bought his first pistol, a Colt Woodsman, across state lines without paperwork - for cash just before the Gun Control Act of 1968 went into effect. It was all legal. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Meteorology at the University of Wisconsin where he was on the pistol team for four years. Then came a tour in the Army as a young officer, where he had additional duties as a military game warden. A job as a Wisconsin conservation warden convinced him to go back to graduate school where he earned an M.S. in mining engineering. A five year posting to Panama during the Noriega era was followed by working at the Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona to round out a 30 year career in Army Research, Development, Testing and Evaluation (RDT&E). He taught concealed carry classes from the start of the shall issue concealed carry program in Arizona for 15 years, until a major goal, constitutional carry was obtained. He has participated in the legal and cultural debates surrounding the Second Amendment for over four decades.

Why would you want to know Dean Weingarten?

Because, like our own Chris Bird, he has a great talent for being able to see, make sense out of, and explain more than one side of many gun issues.

I hope, after reading the following article, you'll understand what I mean:

How To Get Inside the Mind of Someone Who Wants a Disarmed Population

Dean Weingarten

There are a significant number of people in the United States who have chosen to be unarmed, and who want the government to ensure as many others are forcibly disarmed as possible. They are a small, but vocal minority. To most people in the gun culture, this is an alien mindset.

It is worthwhile to understand people on the other side of an argument. The left is routinely attempting to shout down and silence people in the gun culture; one of the strengths of Second Amendment supporters is the willingness to engage with people who want most people in America forcibly disarmed.    

Train like your life depends on it.
