    Interesting...

    Your aggressive reaction only proves I've hit a sensitive point.

    So tell us:

    What do you feel when you hold a gun?

    What do you fear? What fascinates you?

    On the contrary. It should tell you I'm confident enough in my position that I don't fear defeat.

    Your lack of counterpoints tells me that you have difficulty finding them.

    You'd apparently find this hard to believe, but I don't find debating irritating at all when my opponent primarily attempts to use real, rational evidence, like you were doing, previously. We're playing the same game, so to speak. But if you want to cut it short with that, that's fine too.

    So you think you're playing? (If you say so!)

    Anyway:

    What do you feel when you hold a gun?

    Polymer, steel, recoil, etc.

    Predictable (repressed) answer.

    Well, I hoped for something more meaningful, and closer to truth. This debate would then be far more interesting.

    Because you would be skirting the issue? It isn't about how people feel when they hold guns. If I were to say "I feel like I want to kill everyone!" You'll say "Exactly! Everyone who appreciates firearms is unstable and dangerous!," and if I say "I feel glad to live in a society where enough people hold the same values as myself, so that I'm able to protect not only myself, but take part in protecting the rights of all, collectively speaking," You'll say "Bullshit." It's completely pointless.
