Just because you dont trust him doesnt mean he wants to take all your guns.
If someone is intent on concentrating power with a certain authority, who in the past has shown a proclivity to intervene in the most personal choices a person or institution makes, i.e. health care, religious freedom,if that person has stated that the way to attain certain behavior is to make a behavior so expensive that it will be destroyed-coal fired plants, I'll have to be prepared that that person has no qualms about abusing and curtailing other freedoms.
We all make judgements and decisions every day. We make them based on instinct or/and experience of someone's prior behavior.
I've stayed away from certain people, not because they've hurt me before, but because by judging their past behavior I can pretty much surmise whether or not their future actions are to my detriment.
And more often than not, I'm right.
