Hello,

“to come out with guns blazing” is an idiomatic expression, isn`t it? I guess it means be ready to argue with a passion. Am I right.

Many thanks,

Yes, that is right.

hello, nice idiom, like ‘‘have a low boiling point’’?

Well, a person with a low boiling point would probably come out with guns blazing, yes.
