Because of the chivalrous tendency of some alpha or wannabe-alpha males to wish to machismo-istically protect/defend other 'weaker' people (primordially women) from assailants (mainly to impress those women and others so they can be perceived as dominant and get laid), which means they are primed to attack those whom they believe present such a danger. This tendency gets warped from "protext with weapons" to "protect weapons" as the original protector/defender impetus gets psychologically projected/transferred upon the means as if it were what it does indeed become for them, an end in itself; thus the infamous Bush, Sr. bumper sticker "defend firearms" instead of defend WITH firearms. Of course this means their intellection takes a backseat to their emotions and they feel impelled to attack anyone who proposes even the most logical, rational and reasonable controls upon weapons access as the dastardly inhuman enemy who are attacking their more precious lumps of empowering me!
tal. It truly is a viciously virulent meme, as is the antiabortion meme, which causes its adherents to cognitively reduce women to inhuman and attackable receptacles in order to protect and defend the "real" people inside them, and when the two are combined, jihadic hell can break loose (see Aaron Lynch's chapters on this dynamic in THOUGHT CONTAGION).

It allows him to efficiently murder what he surveys if he so wishes, but not to be their monarch, but to kill someone is not to rule them; one can only rule the living. And notice the "man" and "mankind" in the quote (it isn't a big female thing), as well as the sexual and anthropomorphic referral to the weapon as his "queen" to be "possessed" and "used well"; clear illustrations of the psychological displacement to which I referred.
