5. mischaracterization
"Why would the gun control advocates, who are presumably unarmed, willing to antagonize heavily-armed paranoid nuts who are on guard against gun seizures?"

because some things are more important than myself. I realize that this novel concept doesn't translate well for the "I want guns--fuck everyone else...ME ME ME ME ME" crowd.

There are no "gun grabbers." Gun control advocates also aren't trying to disarm any law-abiding person. On the side of sanity, we merely want to decrease the proliferation of guns, and make certain weapons and associated items extremely difficult for criminals and the disturbed to purchase.

I am categorically against any law that empowers any agency to grab any gun from a law-abiding owner. Not that it really matters, it's unconstitutional anyway.
