Right, but this is not the audience you need to reach.You're right, but a bunch of curmudgeonly octogenarians are not going to embrace social media in an effort to change hearts and minds.
Here you go! BINGO! The only thing is, take it from the old posters and flyers, and "spread the word" on social media. Kids don't go to gun shops all that much.Podcasts and U tube are how and where the younger generations get there news and views from nowadays i have 2 stepsons, 1 early 20's 1 late 20's and all they watch are Joe Rogan and the like. You would need something like a team of kids from SNHU media arts to set up a studio to cast from, a host that has "it" that people will watch and believe and follow, and a web site to launch all this from. And that's just the little of it that i learned from my kids..lol Go old school and have open / free fishing derbys at your gun clubs, get the 4-H involved, start spreading the word through the teens in those groups, hold open shoots and lessons for kids, but you guys would have to supply the .22s.. Advertise old school, posters at guns shops , grocery markets, churches, local convienence stores, but if you do the kids shoot use clay pigeons and steel plates kids get bored with paper targets fast, and of course hamburgers, hotdogs and such. Don't forget in order for a kid to get there a parent has to drive them. Show the local newspapers how safe and fun and educational it all is. You could try the same thing at the SNHU level but use the Forestry / Game Warden type classes to get the word out also the R.O.T.C. if need be. Hell get N.H. Fish and Game in on it, they usually support any sporting event and may help spread the word.. Oh, i forgot for the college age you need bigger guns,, harder to impress them..lol Old school but hopefully effective.
