I guess once a gun has the taste of crime and killing in it, the gun will be harder to control and might just jump up and fire itself to satisfy the blood lust. Or maybe some folks think that guns have a power like the car in Stephen King's "Cristine" where the gun will change the personality of the new owner to more closely match the original owner/criminal and spur him on to commit some crime. I have heard people say they support the AWB because those guns "look so evil". There is no reasonable argument that works with people who have these beliefs. Maybe we have not progressed very far from punishing a tree after a man falls from it and dies.
