The founders of our Republic understood the fact that government is a necessary evil, the unimpeded growth of which always leads to human suffering on a mass scale.

Such a person may consider themselves to be well-intentioned (and may actually be so) but wrong due to ignorance. We need to convert any such people to our side and the way to do that is by eliminating their ignorance, not alienating them by saying "There Are No Well-intentioned Gun Grabbers".
