What is up with the Verge commenters being such gun nuts?

Seriously that thread seems more like Fox Nation then the verge. Spouting off about how there was something else in the bill, or the specific implementation, that made it so the 90% figure doesn't matter. (Maybe it was all the loop holes that would still allow unrestricted access to guns.) Just a bunch of internet libertarians I guess, but man I expected better from the verge readers.
