2. Pretty good.

People who value their freedoms won't like it, though.

3. Yep, see how they like it if we did to their "gun rights"

what they are trying to do to our voting rights.

"Ballots are the rightful and peaceful successors to bullets."

9. United States Practical Shooting Association

Or USPSA. They will have lots of local matches around AZ.
Go to a match, early is best to help set up. Tell them you want to learn to shoot but know zip. They will be welcoming and help you find a coach.
When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.
Edit to add: DO NOT go to a gun store!
The USPSA guys and gals are the best in the world.

10. I don't, but I "know" someone who does.

Some of this will not apply to you and it's longish (about 20 minutes), and you don't have to agree on every point. But every point made is something you should definitely think about.


Best of luck to you and your Mom. Come here any time with any quesiton. Someone will know something.

15. Owning a gun without training on how to use it is how tragic accidents happen.

I used to shoot (rifles) competitively and I do not choose to own a gun. You'd be better off with a less lethal defense, some kind of spray or a self defense course.

17. I just shot a regular .32 rifle

Though my personal gun was fairly light since I was smaller than the guys on my team. I shot on an otherwise all male team in high school, though I learned to shoot at a girls' summer camp and was on an all female team there. And we never used any sort of clip, loaded it one bullet at a time, those were the rules. And we were thoroughly trained and had to know and understand safety rules before we ever picked up a gun. We shot at targets at 50 feet. One of our unwritten rules was to never shoot anything living. No one ever did.

24. We had .22 rifle training as past of the PE curriculum in my HS

In one of the gyms. Only boys, the girls did archery.

18. AND...

everyone in your home should know how to use it, or not have any access to it.

If it's locked away safely, it won't do squat if your home is invaded by a criminal

19. And ammunition should be stored separately.

Though I never had a gun at home, it was always locked up at the range.
