A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.
be a good redneck and say "get in that kitchen and make me some pie!" :)
Usualy people who react like that haven't got a clue about a lot of things. They are afraid of any thing they don't understand. It's the ones that don't have any common sense and are easily lead. You know the ones, they have no original thoughts.
A witness (roommate) whose own mother might face a charge of falsely reporting an incident to the police if she does not back the mother up. You'd be forcing the daughter to choose between mom and roommate in a situation where a criminal charge is concerned. I don't give the roommate great odds, there. Blood is thicker than water.
I just ignore them...I stay armed, but do not engage in their silly conversations.
I believe that you engaged too much...OMO
I may say, "You're free to believe the way you choose, and I'm entitled to my opinion also, and...thanks for sharing!"
Then I have a seat...back in a place...so as to face the door, of course!

You did well, BUT, you didn't drop the gun! No, seriously, the media has everyone who knows nothing about guns thinking that semi-automatic is FULLY-automatic. I know you were in a losing battle, but I personally will correct that misconception every time I encounter it. It reminds me of a robbery that happened here a few weeks ago and the local news made sure to mention, repeatedly, that the robbery was committed with a semi-auto weapon(like it was something spectacular). They don't realize that nearly every criminal is carrying a semi-auto because revolvers aren't cool anymore. OK, my little rant is over. lol.
Thats gotta be the most profound statement I've ever seen!
Seriously though, I appreciate your sentiments but heres my feelings. My house, my guns, my life, If you don't like my guns, you can stay at a hotel. I applaud your cool headed responses and understand your courtesy but I'm afraid that I dont have "tactfullness" in my skill sets.
We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.
In that situation, I would have DEFINITELY thrown her insanity right back in her face, "There are no other firearms here, because I heard that you were mentally unstable...and I can see by your display that that is indeed the case. This conversation is over."

Limatunes, you'd fit right in with my family. My parents met while shooting pistols with firends and family. In fact you've got me beat with the wedding reception thing, but we shoot at darn near every family gathering. Birthdays, Easter, Christmas, you name it.
My wife and I have decided to claim you an your husband as relatives.
BTW: were you the one in the Browning commercials who had the Browning Buck mark made from icing on her wedding cake?
