    I think that the overwhelming majority of people understand that the weapons pictured in the diary are not useful to and are not desired by most people.  They appeal to the survivalist/insurrectionist/milita mentality, which is still substantially a minority group (and which nevertheless also has rights).  It is also widely recognized as not the group, however crazy many of us may think they are, that is responsible for most gun violence.

    I suspect most Coloradans wouldn't mind if those guns all just "went away".  But then they read stuff like we've been seeing here recently and think:  "wait a minute, that's my gun they're talking about, not some "military assault rifle".

    Fake Left, Drive Right . . . not my idea of a Democrat . . .
