Really wanna win this political fight about guns?

In 2009 my congressional campaign opened with something similar to the thought below. Back then, as a new candidate I just blurted it out in a newspaper interview. Some three years and a lot of political work later, it seems truer now than before:

The sooner patriotic Americans realize we are engaged in a bar room brawl, the better. Stepping outside and puttin’ up yer dukes is gentlemanly, but you might never make it outside when the opposition is grabbing beer bottles and heavy beer mugs off the bar and whacking people over the head. Wanna win the fight? Grab a beer mug and start swingin’ back.
