    Point being some folks are just not into guns. And since the gun business doesn't have rock solid evidence that we would want to support our case, they don't buy the logical argument either. It's like all those stats on Defensive Gun Usages - mostly self reported, with few cases being ever clean cut and out in the open. Yeah, maybe that guy stopped the shooting... or maybe he did not. It's again, kind of self-reported, and is not evidential at all. Save your effort for the interpretation of laws, many folks around here would be appreciative.

    The OP is right, if we're going to get through this storm we need to go slow with people who know nothing about guns and bring them around easy. Rhetorical questions are naturally antagonistic. Questions, however, that lead to critical thinking aka the Socratic method--is a highly effective tool of persuasion. Leading with the same old car/fork comparisons gets you nowhere fast. You have to break through to those folks that are being manipulated by media pressures, basically re-manipulate them toward reason and common sense.
