Pretty good comparison of the city dweller with someone that is more rural in regards to how they think of guns. Explains a lot.
He’s right in that we as gun supporters have to hit the middle of the target, not go for the head shot every time. Aim small, miss small. Aim big, hit big…

Upper Marlboro, MD --(Ammoland.com)- People that live in the cities, often do not realize what freedoms they have lost or have given up by choice to live in close proximity to others.
I have sat and listened to groups of rural Americans complain about the same things that urban Americans applaud. It is an argument for freedom that is not understood by the casual observer. If you are involved in the gun rights movement and have ever wondered what you have missed living in and urban setting, here are a few observations.
If you are reading this you are probably more comfortable with people that support the right to keep and bear arms without restriction, versus those that think that all firearms should be banned.
The majority of the country however is somewhere in the middle. The Middle has people that say only certain types of people should be armed or certain types of firearms should be available. It also has those that don’t have an opinion, or that are still deciding which way to lean. It is this middle group that the gun rights evangelists should focus our pro freedom messages on.
Just like at the range, the middle is a much larger target than either end of the scale and is fairly quiet in comparison to the anti-rights crowd. But what about the big urban populations you ask? Surely they want freedom too?
