not really. people want tighter regulations on who can own a gun, that's all. unfortunately … well, domestic violence is something around 40% higher than average in marriages to cops. so people who want to push for things like "violent offenders shouldn't be allowed to own guns" would wind up disarming a large percentage of the police force. and so on.
basically, there's a lot of power and money behind "democrats want to take your guns!!!!", and a lot of dead bodies behind "we need to regulate gun ownership more strictly". most people don't really think about it that way. they think "how am I supposed to revolt against the government if I surrender my right to own weapons?", or "school shootings are bad", or "well, there are wild bears and mountain lions out here, so you'd be an idiot not to own a rifle", and so on.
