Have you ever changed an opinion?

In reading in this forum, have you ever changed an opinion on any topic as a result of your own conversations or by observing the ones that go on here?

I don't think there is really a right or wrong answer, but I am just curious how many people have had a change in the way they think about or view any of the topics discussed.

The poll is a simply yes or no, so feel free to elaborate on the number of times this may have happened and the subjects that it happened with if you so choose.

I have yes. Most of the time it's marginal moving around on the edges of issues, but I've had some pretty substantial changes in position one or twice too.

I don't know if this really counts as an offical "change" but--
I grew up doing a lot of fishing, but guns were not part of the family activities. Although I was never a big "gun control" (very vague term) advocate, I generally leaned toward stronger controls on what should be available to people. I guess I've been swayed that most of the control measures won't reduce crime or stop some of the mass shootings we see from time to time.

Everything else I've been 100% correct about, so a change of opinion would not be possible.

I am actually very similar to this. I think a lot of it was just a lack of exposure and understanding. This may sound strange but also my obsession with Pawn Stars provides even more exposure and information on the gun ownership community, even if they are antique models.

This would first require having an incorrect opinion.

Yeah, I think a lot of us who posted "Yes" did so because that points to being open-minded...who wants to admit otherwise?

I don't think answering yes or no is a reflection of whether or not someone is open minded.

I changed my mind on evolution several years ago. But not because of anyone on this board. In fact, had I encountered Lane or any of those folks back then I'd have run for the hills and known I was dealing with sheer lunacy. Actually it was my grandfather who convinced me. And he was a devout, rural Mid Missouri Christian who was a tireless volunteer in his small town church.

So you used to believe in evolution, but now you don't?

It's unclear from this post, but it sounds like you became a creationist.

Interesting.

I used to believe in the science community, but then I realized that they are controlled by progressive Universities who are sucking from the teat of the tax payer.

I changed my mind about one specific issue regarding gun control. It wasn't because of anything said on Chiefsplanet, but it was because of something a poster said on a similar forum here in town that no longer exists.

Whenever I heard anyone say that gun-free zones are a terrible idea, I would roll my eyes and dismiss the person making the argument as an over-zealous gun nut who insists upon taking his gun EVERYWHERE. The argument I rejected was that gun-free zones guarantee that the people who obey the law are in far MORE danger because a crazed gunman knows everybody there is unarmed.

Then I started thinking about it. A lot. I did some research on mass killings that have taken place over the years in "gun-free" zones, and I concluded that I was wrong. I used to be pretty ambivalent about gun control, but I've evolved. I am now a strong supporter of gun rights, and I roll my eyes whenever anybody immediately starts insisting that's it time to grab all of the guns every time a mass shooting takes place.

Only you would come to that conclusion based upon what he posted. For the life of me I don't know why it is so important for you to endlessly twist other peoples post in an effort to make them feel stupid.
