In the wake of the horrific movie-theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado at the hands of a 24 year-old graduate student, many people are questioning whether or not America should have more stringent gun control laws.
…I am left with the question of what is going on with our boys that they exclusively are prone to the strike to such powerful, insane, derranged, and hurtful forces that would cause some tiny fraction to come up with a plan to go into a school or a movie theater or an isolated island to kill as many innocent children as possible?
In what ways does “Gun Culture” play into whatever might be happening with young men in Western society?
What do you think? Should all guns be banned? Any guns not used for hunting? Only the automatic or semi-automatic?
Does America’s “Gun Culture” – such as a powerful lobby, gun-saturated media, massive black market gun trade, profitable inter-governmental weapons trade, and weapons export sales damage men, specifically?
