When I read it, it sounded like a threat.
But after watching the video, I changed my mind.
I think what he's trying to say is not that every gun owner is crazy....but rather there are quite a few crazies who own guns.
Whether you agree with a mild form of gun control(and yes, everything proposed so far is rather mild, even if I'm opposed to it) or not, he's probably right about what he said.edit on 18-1-2013 by Ghost375 because: (no reason given)

I feel like the whole country is a frog in hot water that's slowly rising to a boil. My only hope is that we realize it as a nation before it's too late. There is power in numbers, but they more they divide us the stronger the hold they have on us is. Only when people stop and realize that now matter how you feel about guns, or gay rights, or abortion, whether your a democrat, republican, libertarian, green party or whatever else. Until WE THE PEOPLE put aside our differences and focus our frustrations where they need to focused which is govt. I don't think we will accomplish anything other then playing right along with whatever "master plan" there may be.
All that being said I do believe they are trying to bait some group into reacting in such a way that they can make an example out of them. "See people with guns are crazy, they had the bad guns that you only need to kill people and wouldn't give them up and now more people are dead". I don't see any good coming out of this, because for a gun owner who believes in the 2nd amendment this is a lose/lose situation. You give up your guns, then your losing your rights and they win. You make a stand to defend your rights, you lose (probably die) they get to label you as crazy and use you to further their agenda, they win.

Oh, you are right. I guess we should all just give up and disarm then.
