This is a perfect window into modern alternate-reality conservative thought.

Liberal: "I don't want to take your guns away, and I will not try to do it"

Conservative: "Oh no you won't take my guns away, I'm gonna start shooting, OMG LOOKOUT THEY JUST SAID THEY'RE COMING FOR OUR GUNS!!!!!"

That is entirely my point. I exagerated slightly, but that is how gun owners feel for the most part. Even if liberals are right, they are not going to change there minds.

So then, why do liberals want to go there?
