I never engage hoplophobes UNLESS there are fence sitters within earshot. If that's the case I'm happy to calmly and politely pick apart anyones gun control argument because I KNOW they will quickly degenerate into hurling insults, tearing at there own hair and clothing, and generally make an ass of themselves.
In any debate, the first one to get emotional and rude looses...and the fence sitters are watching.
