Not boring. That's just how it goes for many.
When I was in high school, I knew that CCW was an option (as an adult) but never considered carrying. When Damn Yankees came to Salt Lake City in '92, I listened to Ted Nugent talk at length about the RKBA during a radio interview that morning, and then at the concert, but the concept still didn't sink in.
But when it eventually sank in for me, it sank deep.
