The interesting part about "they're coming for your guns" is that the THEY in that sentence is usually a military or police person, people who are likely to have conservative values and who would probably resist a direct order to perform such a duty. In essence, according to that argument, many who support a wholesale 2nd amendment are pointing those guns directly at their fellow 2nd amendment brothers and sisters. It's a weird image. For the record, as someone who supports stronger gun control, I've never desired to "take away their guns." It's just not part of the argument and sometimes I find the fear in regards to that possibility disingenuous. I think they're more worried about the "infringed" part for fear of some hypothetical slippery slope.
