I do like the idea of a person studying the weakest part of his or her own side's argument--it's sorta anti the "We need guns because they have guns" logic--

OK, good idea. But one that requires (like maieutics or collaborative research and editing) a certain degree of like-mindedness or at least of shared good faith. I'm all for it. But it's like the photo negative of trying to put forward the strong points. It can still be an argumentative fight, unless everyone involved plays the game in a positive spirit.
