    Some of my friends go all pussy liberal on me when they found out i have a gun. One brought up the topic that Europe doesn't need guns, but the conversation changed when I brought up Kosivo and Bosnia....what are some arguments you guys use?

    Take them to the range. Ask them how a 110 woman is supposed to defend herself against a male attacker.

    Also ask them how they explain how crime in the UK is on the rise if guns are the problem, since they are banned there.

    I'm 6'6"/280lbs, and 9/10 of my friends are under 180lbs, so I usually start pushing them around, acting angry, then I throw them in a chokehold and start choking the shit out of them, but after about 20 seconds I let them go and say, "say I actually was trying to kill you there, would you rather have a gun or would you rather not have a gun?"

    I usually don't engage in the topic. The locked closet is for "valuables."

    I basically leave the conversation at, do you think I am going to kill you or anyone else for that matter? If not then why do you care if I own a gun or not?

    That's basically what I do or i just try to avoid the subject as a whole.

    I'm going to law school to argue for a living, I don't need extra arguing on the side.

    I usually hear the "you don't need an automatic [semi-auto] to hunt deer" anti semi auto/"assault" rifle argument when I hear some of my friends argue against guns. I like to retort with the "my neighbor would be dead right now because of 7 pit bulls if my sks was a bolt action when my brother went to his aid" argument. They don't usually have anything they can argue with that.

    There is a bunch of them here at where I work. One of them even owns a couple of 9-mils and he was complaining today about how it's to easy to get firearms. :rolleyes:

    Wait, Europe DOES need guns. The fact that they don't right now is one of the reasons its so fucked up.

    Also, I don't think I have any friends that are anti gun. I have quite a few liberal friends, but all of them at least have the sense to recognize that gun ownership is not what causes problems.

    I just end the conversation. I've never met a hard line anti-gun type that could be swayed by any argument that I'd be willing to waste my time having.

    You sound just like one of my friends.

    Thats an arguement they would have a very hard time winning though. It does a good job at getting the point through.

    BTW, I'm 6'4'' 200lbs. I do the same thing to my friends sometimes, though most of them carry also.

    I also do not have friends who attempt to choke me to prove a point. If you cannot convey your message without doing something that everyone in the world would view as using deadly force, then you need to improve your ability to articulate and argue a point.

    Pretty much.

    Alternatively, I use the car/tool analogy. Cars are more dangerous and kill a lot more people than guns. Guns used in violent crime typically aren't obtained/carried legally, so accidental deaths are really the only thing they have to bolster their argument.
