Which is why so many pro-gun laws have been passed this year, many of the Dems in both the House and Senate are pro-gun, more than most realize.

Calmly explain or correct someone and you have a chance to change minds (I changed mine!). Tell them they are idiots or shout them down and they will dig in further.
Shouting down occurs on both sides of the liberal/conservative line, it never resolves anything, if more people realized this simple truth we would all be better for it!
