You really think so? That NRA slogan, "From my cold dead hands" isn't just hyperbole?

If you are right, it doesn't say anything complementary about gun owners. It paints them as radical zealots. If they are willing to fight and die to protect their guns, I want to get them unarmed even more.

I guess I have more faith in my fellow men than that scenario illustrates.
