Ah yes, the long haired hippie fags. Now we're really shattering some stereotypes about gun lovers.
It's not my place to say it's wrong to have an unhealthy obsession with instruments of death, but it's definitely weird.
I can see how the stuff is collectible, like swords and armors and even guns. I have a shotgun that my grandfather, an avid hunter, left me in his will. I appreciate it because he wanted me to have something that was very important to him.
But do I fantasize about blowing a communist liberal's head off with it? Nope.
Edit - Oldschoolhero, I'm just as surprised as you are. :)

Oh by the way, want to know the number of guns I've fired in my life. ZERO
See, you are EXACTLY the guy I don't want with a gun. I'm all for people having guns if they want, but if you're going to own a deadly weapon, at the very least you should at least know how to use it right. If you own a gun and have never fired one, you don't know how to use it right. Hit the shooting range and sign up for one of the NRA gun safety classes before the guy breaking into your house laughs his ass off when you blow your foot off.

And that's why I don't own one yet either. Unlike some of these idiots who allow their children access to their guns without really telling them to stay away from it/proper supervison/etc. then being surprised when the kid blows his own head off accidently, my parents taught me to respect guns and instilled in me the power and responsibility that comes with posession of such a weapon. Since now I have neither the time nor the money to take the class, I have passed on actually owning a gun at present.

I think one major question that comes up in my mind reading this is not "are these people guilty" or "are there innocent people in jail", but "are there flaws in our system of deciding what is and is not legal?
