As scholarly studies and international violent crime stats mount to show no correlation between gun control and less violent crime, gun control proponents ignore the science and continue pushing more gun control and more gun bans.
Are gun control proponents flat-earthers?

That is because the aim of gun control is not to disarm criminals, but to disarm the law abiding.
They want to take over, by hook or crook (mostly crook).
They’re afraid that if they do—we’ll shoot them.
Hence—they gotta get rid of our guns first.
Not flat=earthers; totalitarians; nazis, communists, top-down cultists, etc.
Will this matter to Piers Morgan, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), Colorado's Democrat legislators, or President Obama, all proponents of infringing the Second Amendment?
Not before the 39th of September.
Marxist so-called "gun control" is an expression of blind hatred for the Second Amendment and all of us who believe it means exactly what it says. For people who claim to be our moral and intellectual superiors, they sure sound like German anti-Semites of the 1930s and American segregationists of the 1950s and early 1960s.
Blind hatred never sees very far ahead.
That's because that is exactly who they are.
Once the government takes our guns, they will kill us all who denounce its corruption. Mark my words, we are in great danger.
And Clinton and Obama telling the opposite as obvious government dependents are just mouthpieces of this.
It’s a religion.
I think that gun controllers can be subdivided into different neuroses.
For example, those like Bloomberg, who have a deep terror of being assassinated. He surrounds himself with a heavily armed phalanx of bodyguards, all likely with orders to gun down any attacker. But at the same time, Bloomberg wants to deny anyone else the right to have a gun.
Others likely have a neurotic fear of unexpected, loud noises. They literally don’t care about bullets, other than that they are noisemakers. Pop a paper bag behind them and they will want paper bags outlawed.
Others only care about bullets, because they have weird associations with bullet wounds that they don’t have with other violence caused wounds. Stab somebody to death with a knife or bash them to death with a club, and it doesn’t elicit the same neurotic reaction from them as does a non-fatal bullet wound.
Then there are a large bunch who oppose guns religiously, literally, either a faith based religion, or a pseudo-religion like socialism.
Undoubtedly there are those who just oppose guns because their political party does; having no great thought or care other than political conformity.
I think you missed one significant point. To wound or kill someone with a club, fist, or knife you have to be within arm's reach. Granted you can throw a club or a knife ten or twenty feet but more often then not you wind up throwing away your weapon for little if any damaging result. A gun OTOH can reach out and touch someone at far greater distance. That's why Bloomie surrounds himself with bodyguards and still is nervous about public appearances. He knows that a skilled "varmint shooter" can tag him from across the street, down the block, or from a rooftop 800 yards out.
Bloomie isn't the only politician aware of this vulnerability, every elitist progressive socialist anti-constitutionalist politician knows that if he/she gets too aggressive in advancing the leftist agenda they stand the chance of awakening something that would be better left sleeping.
