    All of us shooters give lip service to proselytizing: “Take a new shooter to the range!” “Take someone hunting for the first time!” Few actually DO it, however, at least very often. Once again, US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia inspires us. Just caught this from Eugene Volokh: Kudos to Justice Scalia for taking the time to do this. And kudos to Justice Kagan for being open-minded. Scalia has obviously been a voice of reason for our side. Kagan has not.
