    especially on the point about a shotgun being effective for home defense.

    I posted a similar comment a week or so ago arguing that a shotgun is more effective and safer to bystanders and neighbors for home defense and got thoroughly skinned by some of the other posters, telling me I obviously know nothing about firearms.

    It's a tough discussion, even here on DKos.

      minds up are often not going to even listen to the other side of an issue.  Being a scientist I am more used (although scientists can be bad about this too!) to a discussion, rather than an argument.  I think the main question should be"What can we do to lessen gun violence?", not "Anything you say is a personal attack on my unchangeable ideals and so I won't listen."

      Also guns, like economics, law, religion, politics, and education are likely to push people's buttons.  It would be nice to have civil discourse once in a while at least.
