There is no secret that Facebook is ultra-anti-gun rights. They have been censoring many photos and postings by gun rights advocates while openly supporting gun control fanatics.

In an interesting experiment, a closed Facebook discussion pitted 75 pro-gun rights supporters and 75 pro-gun control supporters. The experiment lasted a full month with the purpose of helping sides to better understand each other.

At the end of the month long experiment, the understanding and discussion appeared to favor the gun rights group, but it may not have been as big of a victory as conservatives may have liked.

( – When talk turns to school kids and shootings, the two sides of America’s great gun debate usually disagree on so many things.

Give guns and firearms training to willing teachers, one side says.

Not happening, says the other.

So what happens when Second Amendment purists and gun-control advocates are brought together over a month to see if they at least can understand one another? Can they agree on ways to reduce gun violence?

In a minor experiment, we set out to see. But first, consider the personalities and conflicting positions.

There was Alexander Covan, 48, of Livingston, New Jersey, who designs education and training programs, totally unrelated to guns, for a living — and who says he sees ignorance or hypocrisy in the politics of gun control. He wants to arm and train willing teachers. David Goodman, 48, a federal firearms dealer in Virginia Beach, and Vanessa Kooper, 20, of Slidell, Louisiana, who works in her family’s business, both want to promote more positive influences in kids’ lives, provide more support for broken and at-risk families and put a very big spotlight on suicide prevention…

Perhaps the biggest thing that came out of this experiment was that both sides agreed that there needs to be more discussion and understanding on both sides of the issue and then, there has to be a way to meet in the middle. I disagree with their conclusion and totally agree with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott who recently stated that the gun control debate ended in 1791.
