Former anti-gun Representative completes firearms instruction course

A friend of mine recently made me aware of this great article and great news regarding Rep. Michael DeBose (D - Cleveland) who was mugged last month.

If you have a few minutes, give the article a gander, because "it's not often a politician admits he was wrong."
It isn't often that a politician admits he was wrong. It is even less often that a politician acts on his new convictions so immediately and publicly as has Rep. Michael DeBose (D - Cleveland) in the weeks since he was made victim by armed criminals in an attempted mugging last month.

...This was a tremendous outreach endeavor. This was a group of individuals that the pro-gun community would have never, in a million years and a million dollars of mailings, have reached. Twelve-plus hours of instruction, and they are now ambassadors for self-defense in their community forever. The next time they are at a function and someone spouts some anti-self-defense Toby Hoover-style nonsense, it will be no surprise if several from this group call them on it. They really do think a lot like us, they've just been afraid to express it.

Not anymore.

This is some truly uplifting news. I haven't heard anything about it on the MSM, so I wonder if it has gotten any airtime outside of Ohio.

Let's just pray that more politicians are moved to this point of humility where they'll admit that they were wrong.
