Maybe he means people on Facebook? ;-)

I don't think most of them are bloodthirsty exactly...they're just paranoid, that's all. They imagine themselves playing out some heroic role, defending freedom and protecting their wives, their children, and the Constitution.

Why wouldn't they believe something like that, given all the dumb Hollywood action films they've viewed during their lives? With role models like Stallone and Chuck Norris, and shows like "The Walking Dead", what would you expect? In all those movies, the solution to everyone's problems is to blow away hundreds of the bad guys with lots of heavy firepower.

For a classic example of this, look up the old Stallone movie "Cobra" on Youtube. It's a hoot. Nice way to spend a couple of hours if you have a hankering for some total escapism and a very high body count.

Notice how incredibly EVIL the bad guys are in all these movies? Hell, why wouldn't some rather naive people want a big private arsenal at home with visions like that playing in their heads?
