Don't try confusing him with facts. Liberals don't pay any attention to facts that do not agree with them.

It's simple, fire him next election.
Washington and it's Elected Representatives all need to be reminded that they took an Oath to Uphold the Constitution of The United States. It's their failed liberal policies that have gotten us in the mess we are in and now they want to label us Felons, Not!
Their agenda is to disarm the Law Abiding Gun Owners in this country so they can enslave us. We were all Born Free and they act like they are our Rulers and own us. Sorry, not me...
I would challenge him on his "statistics." 300 million American guns hurt no one today.That gun, by the way, is statistically far more likely to result in the injury or death of someone close to me or them, than someone bent on doing harm.

Most of these Idiots never wore an Armed Forces Uniform,was never put in harms way and saw what happens when Citizens have no way to defend themselves,but have no problem sending 18 year old soldiers and marines with weapons of war to carry out whatever humanitarian mission they feel obligated to get involved in at the time,Hypocrites

take him up on the offer, and make your points.... tactfully, etc.
Seriously, watch this video for some very good ideas and points. Comparison of Violent Crime rates, with UK, etc. Choose Your Own Crime Stats - YouTube
I've done it , and gotten some to change their minds on issues.... when explained well enough, with good points.
If you are willing to hang in there, not let your frustration show thru, and just stick to the points..... it may not matter if he's just going to take party line, but ... you also don't know.... you may get them to consider "real options" that could do some good, versus supporting fantasy ones that won't help a thing.
Remind them.... in the last 2 shootings.... the guns were stolen. They weren't committed by the legal guns' owners. It's like the body armour argument (I don't want any) but it's dumb some shooters have worn it and then shot themselves.... so why in the world did they even wear body armour .... too "look cool" after they died ?

Chief Justice John Roberts : "I don't see how you can read Heller and not take away from it the notion that the Second Amendment...was extremely important to the framers in their view of what liberty meant."
Here, I ran his response across the Google Politicianese-to-English interpreter:
"I say that I thank you for your inquiry, although I don't really. My mind is made up, so don't confuse or bug me with actual facts and statistics. Because regardless of what you or anyone else says, no matter what common sense argument you make, I'm afraid of those awful, scary guns. So therefore, I think that banning these inanimate objects will somehow reduce crime because that's how it works in LaLa Land. But more importantly, if it 'feels' like I'm dong something good, then I must actually be. So my final stance is....'Guns are bad, mmmkkkay?"
