    After months of getting what they can from some putative calendrical cataclysm, they finally get some real blood to pump up the fear. The fear's still irrational, but at least there's a real event behind it. The solution's still bonkers, but the story sounds plausible enough when the audience is already addled by Fox news: "See all those nuts out there with guns? You'd better get your own to defend yourself! And do it now, before that guy with the funny name starts taking them away!"
