Getting us Second Amendment supporters to clap is easy.

But if you want to marshal evidence for a point, you'll need to up your game.

Yeah, we're all glad to see these numbers.

But you are suggesting one claim and the evidence is supporting another kind of claim.

Up your game.

Argumentation is a grown-up's sport.

Again, your enthusiasm is praiseworthy, but it must be expressed in the form of carefully articulated logic, relevant evidence, and close reasoning.

Keep studying the subject diligently and you will learn a lot.

Most importantly how to argue.
