More to the point, Joe can’t understand why anyone would believe that government regulation of private firearms ownership is a bad thing, not a good thing—excluding the fact that they lack his intellectual firepower and bleeding heart empathy. So Joe’s taken to labeling gun owners who oppose civilian disarmament 'absolutists.' Which is a kindler, gentler and more condescending way of calling them 'extremists.'
