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.
