Review

"I have no reservations about recommending this quick and informative publication. Mr. Gopoian has chosen to approach this important discussion with logic and facts as opposed to the emotional appeals and uninformed opinions that seem to be so prevalent in the wake of the terrible shootings in Newtown." -Reg Gabbert

From the Author

Ask The Author

Q: "Where do you form your views from?"
A: The views are from attempting to question both sides of things as equally as possible. It often leads to a third and less obvious observation that is contrary to both polarized sides. I never reword someone else's words, but I can't imagine that I'm the first to say most of this stuff in the way I do... even if it seems completely original to me.
Imagine if people tried proving themselves wrong just as adamantly as they tried proving others wrong.

More About the Author

"The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding." -Leonardo da Vinci

I won't try and convince you that I'm some kind of expert in any field, as even experts are proven wrong often enough. My writing is informal and could very well contain inaccurate information despite my attempts to avoid it. My point being is that I'm simply trying to be genuine with you the reader as I would be in person.

I've been interested in psychology most of my life, due to most of my questions about the world around me coming to the same conclusion... people were both the cause and effect of almost everything destructive, both in my personal life and in the lives of those around me, and almost always needlessly.

I had not been particularly interested in politics until 2011, when I came across a video that described what "Liberty" meant. "The natural right to pursue your own happiness any way you like, as long as it doesn't impede on someone else's pursuit of happiness." If I have ever heard a golden rule, that was it.

That is when I realized that politics wasn't about two political parties or ideologies at different ends of a spectrum, but about those that wanted the freedom to pursue their happiness and those that wanted to force others to have less. And thus, my journey into the psychology of politics began.

Why would there be people wanting to stop others from pursuing happiness?
Because good people are always so sure they're right and there's nothing more stubborn than a righteously self-proclaimed good person.

From 2007 to 2011, I went from my dyslexia keeping me from succeeding as a Korean crypto-linguist to becoming a law enforcement officer in the Air Force. Since, I've been teaching myself IT and am the system administrator at an international sign manufacturing company, avid board game enthusiast, and amateur pinball pro wannabe.

I was born in Nashua, NH on September 27th, 1984, have been stationed in Monterey Bay, CA and Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA, and currently live with the love of my life and future wife to be and our daughter in Milford, CT.

The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that it is a work in progress; it will get there and I have no reservations about recommending this quick and informative publication.

Mr. Gopoian has chosen to approach this important discussion with logic and facts as opposed to the emotional appeals and uninformed opinions that seem to be so prevalent in the wake of the terrible shootings in Newtown. He presents his arguments as a series of readable and related essays on many of the topics dominating the gun control discussions in the press and the halls of power. The author makes no claim that this exposition is comprehensive or complete and, in fact, invites contributions from readers who may or may not agree with his conclusions so that a more thourough exposition can be presented. Just keep it civil.

I need to admit that my positive review may have something to do with the fact that, after recently spending quite a bit of time researching all sides of this issue, I found myself in sympathy with many of the author's conclusions. You may not agree with some or all of the arguments, and that is just fine. Regardless of your current position on the gun control topic, this publication will give you some food for thought and, if you like, an opportunity to express yourself. I plan to.
