Yep. It's all in the context. Maybe Obama asked one of his top brass guys if they would be able to fire on a group of "rebel" Americans ATTEMPTING a coup d'etat in some place or fashion. Some scrub hears it, and passes it along "OMG OBAMA WANTS TO SHOOT AMERICANS THAT OWN GUNS!!!1" Drama and panic ensue.
