Because the news media has portrayed to the public anyone with a gun could be the next fuse to be lit. You do not hear about the background checks a person goes through to get a CHL. All the public hears is negative crap, almost never about the lives saved by guns. The public also hears about the few nutjobs that were approved to buy the gun that ended up killing people.
I have never seen mass media or even such as 60 Minutes or 20/20 provide data showing how many lives are saved, or crimes stopped by gun owners.
Is it any wonder people want gun control or total banning of guns?
