Firearms company CEO ready to start civil war. Threatens to kill innocent people.

So let me get this straight... The victims of sandy hook, aurora and the other ~11000 victims of gun death a year are necessary so this guy and others like him can continue to fuel their paranoid delusions of tyrannical rule by buying and owning assault rifles to prepare against the "rise of imaginary Hitler" (as put by Jon Stewart)  First, as a patriotic American (who values democracy a whole lot more than this guy apparently) , I am utterly appalled that this kind of culture exists in our country... Secondly, I don't quite understand how these people have interpreted the proposed small steps of reducing the legal magazine sizes for future sales and banning future purchases of highly efficient assault rifles as "they are coming for all our guns". I would venture to say that many of these gun owners who stockpile massive quantities of firearms in preparation for Armageddon or the zombie apocalypse have manufactured these delusions to give their stockpiling a sense of purpose. Well apparently they are now banding together and nearly ready to initiate war with their own country. In their mind Obama = Hitler = Stalin etc. and guys like this are, "willing to fire the first shot". A person actually posted the following quote on his first, "Pack your bags" video: 
In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned.
When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.
-Mark Twain

I have also seen companies using using internet banners ads like this one:
I am sure the relatives of  Sandy Hook victims appreciate the attempted money grab here.
One thing I do know is the Firearms industry is profiting massively by inducing fear in already overly paranoid gun owners. People like this guy are anti-American, anti-democracy war mongers and this video in my opinion borderlines treason.. The FBI isn't "taking all the guns" but I think they should probably pay this guy a visit, and I'd suggest bringing back up as well. And Just for the record, If this guy and the people that support him are the "good guys with guns" supposed to stop those "bad guys with guns" then I am not sleeping any better at night. 
 On one hand we have part of our nation calling for a sensible change in gun policy because we have had enough of seeing our children and innocent people slaughtered and on the other we have a subculture of firearm stockpiling armageddon fearing vigilantes that are preparing for war. I feel that the pure fact that this subculture even exists is proof that 1) Our lack of gun control of any kind is NOT a good thing 2) That the firearm industry is despicably using these massacres for monetary gain and 3) This subculture is the product of the NRA and the Industry itself. I fear this is not going away soon and as we as a country move closer to making the first steps in sensible gun control in decades innocent lives may pay the price. I hope I am wrong and I hope other rational gun owners will speak up and denounce these paranoid war mongers and call them for what they are.
