16. That's just a generalization
I know lots of Democrats and some super progressives who have guns and will fight against anyone who would try to keep them from owning guns.

Although I know some Democrats who spew gun control, I think it is just spin that Democrats are "all anti-gun." More Republican scare tactics.
