I believe this can depend heavily on the trend of the day and current events. In my personal opinion there can be a lot of paranoia within the crowd of people who feel they need to be armed with firearms all the time. There can certainly be legitimate hunting and sporting folks who have appropriate guns for those purposes. I grew up in that kind of environment and I was one of that crowd. But the heavily militarized people who stockpile AR-15s and thousands of rounds of ammunition and like to undergo military-inspired training exercises in the woods, are a different sort. Some of those people may be ex-service members with genuine military experience from which to draw. Others never served are simply acting out their unrealized military fantasies. And there are people in between, along a continuum. I just figure that people gotta decide for themselves the level of paranoia to which they will subscribe. For some, that paranoia level is very high.
