Short answer, yes I blame the gun culture. People in other countries look at us and shake their heads. The 2nd amendment is grossly misinterpreted and I personally wouldn’t mind if it was repealed. But I realize while legally possible, it’s highly unlikely to happen. I don’t own guns and never will; I have no reason to.Murder is illegal, there are laws against ending anyone's life so there you go.
As far as the prevalence of guns, that should tell you that the majority of gun owners are not out there committing crimes with them.
People who don't acknowledge that are actually the problem. It's you people blaming the gun, or blaming "gun culture" but not looking at the real issues like the psychos who get guns and go on rampages, or the gangbangers shooting each other in the streets EVERY DAY. Nope lets blame "gun culture" and the 10's of MILLIONS of Americans exercising their natural born rights without ever using their gun for murder or any other crimes. Surely doing something about them will stop these shooting. GTFOH
IMO, priorities are screwed up. Some people are unwilling to make any concessions, even if it saves lives. There is a correlation. States with stricter gun regulations have lower rates of homicide and suicide. That’s a fact. We can’t prevent all gun deaths but we can do SOMETHING to try to reduce them.
