Yeah, I know. What did I really expect? I was a bit surprised that someone who has know me for 20 odd years would accuse me of being a psychopath, but I guess that is the only thing that fit in with their belief system.
This person is a classic hard case, described here. He thinks you will kill him because he doesn't trust himself not to kill you. Reason won't work. And NRA publication will backfire badly.

Read the article I linked. Sounds like your friend. Personally, I can't be bothered with these types. Not worth the effort.

While I usually agree with this, and in most cases it works, it sometimes fails, particularly with this type of person. I've seen it. One person that I took shooting (only one) was terrified by the experience.
