My sympathies. I've known a couple of people who keep guns because they too believe that Big Gubmint Socialists and New World Order types will one day come to strip them of their liberties. It's ridiculous.
We live in one of the most stable and arguably the most successful democracy in all of human history and yet we have a delusional subculture who thinks police or soldiers are going to smash down their doors and confiscate their means of defending themselves as part of some sinister plot to shred the Constitution. Some are misguided and misinformed. Others aren't exactly right in the head. Still others are just plain stupid and probably shouldn't be trusted with the instructions on a shirt.
