      What is the name of "the moment"?

      I read more than once that when an anti gun person has a change of heart, usually after a bad experience they call it the (blank) moment. Don't know how it started but I can't remember the phrase.

      Anyone? Thanks

      A few come to mind, most beginning with "Oh-", that would likely violate forum guidlines should I post them.

      An epiphany is what it was, but somewhere it was named. I've been looking for it for an hour through my different gun forums and can't find it. Bugging the heck out of me. Geez!

      "Realization of my hypocrisy" and "undoing years of brainwashing and propaganda" here...anything ringing bells yet?

      Good luck finding it though...I hate hunting around the internet looking for part of a missing phrase, it's one of the hardest searches.

      I've seen it somewere but can't remember the exact phrase neither.........
      "Epiphany" does do a really good job of discribing it though!
      I wish our "Fearless Leader" Obama would have an "Epiphany" before it's to late!

      Are you thinking of "Seminal Moment"?

      Meaning a seed has been planted and is starting to grow.

      A long version of that would be: "I didn't give a hoot when it happened to others, but now that it's happened to me I can see the light moment."

      That's the thought Loupgarou. I think I saw it one of my NRA mags. When I find it I'll post it, that's for sure. I thought it was a more universally known thing. Named after a state or city. Still looking.
