  •  You're not an idiot (14+ / 0-)

    Not at all.

    You sent her a text apologizing, which I commend you for doing because I would not have done that, and it's up to her now whether or not she values your friendship enough to forgive you.
    Even though I don't think you need forgiving since you did nothing wrong.
    You stated an opinion and the fact that your friend became angry and defensive is a sign that she knows she's wrong.
    Her beliefs in gun-ownership is her religion.

    We also have friends that were very good friends who helped us when we were in desperate need of help, but they are Glenn Beck followers and gun enthusiasts.
    They are also racists.
    But where we live those traits are the norm.

    My husband and I found out the hard way to never talk politics and guns.
    They truly believe that Obama is coming for their guns and they look forward to it, describing in detail the bloodshed that will happen because they are not alone in planning to fight against the government.
    I don't know who they think will win, because we ended up getting up and leaving their home when the N-word was used about President Obama.

    My respect for them dropped to zero and we are neighborly but no longer friends, at least on my part.
    We still deal with each other as neighbors, doing neighborly things such as watching their animals when they leave and they pick up our mail when we go out of town.

    You did nothing wrong but since you are so upset, I do hope that your friendship prevails.

    Hugs to you.

    •  I decided a few years ago that life is too short (7+ / 0-)

      to be friends with or even associate with racists and bigots.. I have decided some friendships are not worth saving if the people are bigots as I lose respect them and I then dread being around them or talking to them.

      Life is too short for stressful relationships and I do all in my power to de stress relationships or if nothing works, to end up. I always feel so much healthier and at peace and the doctor loves it when I remove negativity from my life.
