The people pushing this totalitarian agenda see themselves as the "vanguards of revolution". They truly HATE lawful gun owners. It's simply not in their nature to leave well enough alone. They HAVE to poke the bear to prove their moral "superiority". Of course they won't just stop at guns. Gun bans are a means AND an end. They want you starving silently in your cold house while they take private jets to each other's villas. They're dumb but not dumb enough to think that people are going to endure a renewed Holodomor, or be hauled away at gunpoint for using the wrong pronoun without resisting with force. And a LOT of people will die behind it.
