What could she have been expected to do--start a hex fight with James and Sirius? Shoot first and ask questions later? She did what would be expected--try to get them to stop. And then Snape insulted her with the worst insult possible, while she was trying to help him.

They were friends for five or six years. How long was she supposed to put with it? Again, this seems to blame Lily for Snape's bad choices.
