NRA Debate Tips

Is it too much to ask for some rational opinions and less over-the-top rhetoric on the gun debate? I'm a progressive and a gun-owner, and I would like to see compromise from both sides on this issue, but the anti-gun side is having to overcompensate while being absurded to death by the pro-gun side to the point that we rational gun owners really have no one speaking for us. I'm sorry but non-negotiating, foamy mouthed blowhards aren't going to sell anyone on rational and sane gun ownership laws. If you want people to think you're a crazy gun nut, keep at it the way you've been doing. If you want people to take you seriously, settle down, breathe between statements, let the counterpoint get their time to speak, and focus on the issue directly, not by nebulously quoting the 2nd Amendment ad nauseum.
