Gun nuts are all cowards, you know, by nature. They buy guns because they're insecure and live in fear. Let's take a look the demographics of gun owners. There are less hunters, most young people avoid guns, as do most women and self respecting democrats. So that leaves the bigots, racists, scooter bound republicans, fundamentalist nitwits, anti abortion scumbags, delusional libertarians, conspiracy theorists and other assorted crazies and kooks that make up the population of gun owners. They are the type that can be easily persuaded the government is on a mission to confiscate their firearms.
That fear and paranoia is no doubt amplified by having a black
president, which represents the deepest fears of right-wing survivalist
types. So it was probably naive to expect that the gun nuts themselves
could support common sense gun safety measures.
So forget what the gun nuts, the NRA, and the neocon traitors who
support them think. If we repealed prohibition, we can repeal the second
amendment. Repeal it and put and end to gun violence. Make it happen
"My AR15 will surely protect me from the US military's drones, infantry,
tanks, attack helicopters, and nuclear missiles!" - Gun nuts
Let what happened to the Boston bombers be a lesson to the gun nuts.
Seriously, if the US government decided it wanted to kill every man,
women, and child in the country, there's nothing a "well-regulated
militia" could do.
