I'm not just mocking his stupidity. Although, why not? He asks for it.
It's important to think about how guys like 5280 or your red-state uncle or your nutty grandma get their notions, and stubbornly cling to them. They lack a fundamental understanding of how you distinguish fact from propaganda. They're simply ignorant of common cons, like fake polls. Many of them are so invested in believing in somebody else's con that they can't back out now. They'd rather double down than admit they were conned by flim-flam like PoliceOne or the NRA publishes.
As I've mentioned many times, the number of gun owners is in steady decline even as the number of guns increases. They're getting crazier and more rigid in their fanaticism. Their own unstable behavior is bringing gun regulation down on their own heads.
