I think It's not about idolatry I think christians with guns simply choose to ignore specific things the bible teaches like:
Thou shall not kill.
Love your brother as yourself, even love your enemy.
He who hates his brother is in darkness. etc.
I think it's not about idolatry but it's the spirit of confusion, fear, unbelief and paranoia.

The Vatican does not sit on those 7 hills, but rather is found on the west bank of the new, Christian-era City of Rome. Don't use your bigotry to interpret scripture...or the wornout bablings of a Quisling like R. Bennett. May God forgive him for his blindness. GG: A sheep from the true flock of the Lord.
