Larry didn’t “win” this “debate.” The head of the Gun Owners of America got hosed for one simple reason: he wasn’t allowed to speak. Nevertheless, I give Mr. Pratt props for walking into the lion’s den. Equally, his head didn’t explode when the gang of two ganged up on the gun rights guy. If I have one piece of advice to Larry for future encounters it’s this: staying stum and waiting for an opening ain’t gonna work when you’re being gang-banged. At some point you need to tell the other guys to shut up. “Gentlemen, I didn’t come here to get a browbeating from a couple of misguided fools. You’ve made your point. Give me thirty seconds to speak without interruption and I’ll continue. Otherwise this is pointless.” The only power you have in a negotiation is the power to walk away. Now that I’d like to see.
