A large portion of the "Yes" respondents probably believe that the government won't come for their personal guns; they believe that the government will go after the "nasty" guns (i.e. guns unlike the ones they personally own) and/or those owned by "bad" people (i.e. groups other than themselves). Many people aren't bothered by slippery slopes.
