Alright, so I'm writing a western novel and my main character is a vigilante gunslinger. I intended for him to be a rather serious character, but the dialogue I have been writing for him and every other character makes them sound like immature wackos. Here is an example:

“We aren’t here to talk, we’re here to kill you,” responded the brother.
“I know that. Personally I think I’m going to kill you. So there.”
“We’ll see about that.”
“’We’? Are you saying that more than one of you will be fighting?”
“Well, no, I mean I’ll see about that. Shut up.”
“No, no, you totally said We. I think you’re going to cheat.”
“We wouldn’t cheat. That’s what drunken murders like you do.”
“Well, if you killed me, wouldn’t that make you a murderer?”
“Us killing you would be justified and not murder. It would benefit society.”
“Again, with the plural you killing me. Also, I think that all of the killing I do is justified, so I’m not a murderer either. So ha.”
“Would you just shut up, so we can kill you.”
“No, I won’t let you (plural) kill me. I will let you (singular) try to kill me though.”
“Shut. Up.”
“No.”
“Goddamn it. I’ll kill you.”
“Try.”
“Fine.”
“Wait!”
“What?”
“I would just like to say that this is the most absurd conversation I have ever had before a fight.”
“Same for me.”
“Well at least we can admit it.”
“I guess.”

I think it is pretty funny though. I laughed while writing it. Do you think it is funny, or just stupid?
