That is my experience too.
Lots of anti-gun people say "nobody wants to take your gun away" yet a lot of legislation has been introduced in various states which includes, if not outright confiscation, then de facto confiscation. Gov. Andrew Cuomo said "Confiscation could be an option" (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/21/nyregion/cuomo-says-he-will-outline-gun-measures-next-month.html?_r=0). So anti-gun people, shut up with the lie that "nobody wants to take your gun away". We know you are lying (or just stupid) when you say it.
