I think the reaction of the anti-gun audience, and especially the professor, was 100% predictable. Akin to sitting in the LSU section rooting for Alabama. You gave your professor a wide open shot at an easy target with the "molon labe", "cold dead fingers" stuff, even if you were right as far as we members of the choir are concerned.
why do you think he was going around the room?
because he was looking for you or someone like you to disagree with him.
he was picking a fight so to speak, and you gave him an open invitation
a college is not the place to have an open and honest debate.
your professor didnt want to have a discussion, he wanted someone to point his finger at
