I’ve seen this happen in real life when a staunch gun control advocate finally realizes the truths and necessities behind legal gun ownership, they change sides and become just as much of a zealot for gun rights as they were for gun control.

This is what happened to H.A. Goodman, a freelance writer who has written pieces on the need for gun control that have been published in national publications. After witnessing the corruption that has run rampant among the Obama administration and how some of those involved have managed to escape legal consequences for their actions, Goodman not only joined the NRA, but he also joined the Gun Owners of America and plans to join more Second Amendment groups.

(Daily Caller) – Years back, I was a staunch gun control advocate. Last week, I joined the NRA and the Gun Owners of America, and I’m looking to join more Second Amendment advocacy groups. How did this evolution take place?

In 2014, I wrote articles for “The Huffington Post” titled “If ISIS Had Committed the 11 School Shootings Since Sandy Hook, Congress Would Have Declared War” and “What Gun Advocates Should Remember: You’ll Never Overthrow The Government and It Isn’t Scared of You.

Rebuttals from numerous publications resulted from the latter piece, especially since it highlighted my disdain (at the time) for gun owners. “The American Conservative” published a 2017 piece by Grayson Quay titled “The Left Has the Stronger Case for Gun Ownership,” explaining my tunnel vision:

I once had a heated dialog with a gun control fanatic who refused to listen to reason. A few months later, he watched as two men broke into his home, sexually molested his wife and teenaged daughter before robbing them and fleeing. The only thing he could think about at the time was how much he wished he had a loaded gun handy, because all the intruders had were knives. He, his wife and daughter, now grown, all have concealed carry permits and always keep a loaded gun handy at home.
