Stick to one’s guns

DEFINITION

Defend your beliefs. Uphold one’s moral attitude. What is being ‘stuck up’ is one’s moral opinions and to stick to ‘one’s guns’ implies, like Old West cowboys,¬† you are not backing down from a fight or challenge to your convictions.

“Son, I don’t care that your teacher said humans evolved, we believe that it all started with Adam and Eve, so stick to your guns about that.”
