My take on those who collect, shoot, hunt, or their wise buy guns are for the largest extent just normal people. They are not bat shiit crazy. Of there re some of those but there are some of those in every demographic.

We had guns on the farm, rifles and shotguns. Every body did in rural Kansas . No one ( loose term here) even considered shooting up the place.

Same kinda people now.

If we don't count our blessings
We are just wasting our time
