It's not useful, in fact it's a cynical attempt to drive gun sales and NRA memberships. They are acting like 'troofers,' and for the same purpose.....$$$
Fear is the best motivator. Both sides use it, especially on this issue. Confiscation isn't going to happen, but that doesn't mean that the left doesn't want it to happen.
