Speaking as someone who has to deal daily with the anger, frustration, and aggressive behavior displayed when people feel unempowered and threatened by situations beyond their control, you escalated the situation unnecessarily. You would have been better off offering to explain your views in a calm, reasonable manner.

Instead, you've contributed to a situation where you now have two highly motivated people who will likely advocate for tighter gun control laws to anyone who would listen as a direct result of their personal experience with you. It seems more pragmatic to value your ideals above the short-term pleasure of machismo.
