There's a huge difference between sport shooters and gun nutters.

You wouldn't know it by listening to the insane moral panic over guns going on on the left right now. Lots of perfectly legit sport shooting men and women own guns that are perfectly legit sport rifles designed to be accurate and easy to shoot and that are no more dangerous than any other semi-automatic weapon. But because the guns are black and scary looking anyone who owns them must be insane and it is ooooooobvious that they are mass-murdering machines of mass destruction-murder.

This, despite the fact that handguns are statistically the most dangerous weapons and by far the most common murder weapons - even in cases of mass murder.
