"Since NBC sportscaster Bob Costas went on his halftime anti-gun rant on Sunday using words written by Fox Sports Columnist Jason Whitlock, we’ve heard a lot from the media and from uniformed commentators about America’s “gun culture.” The fact is, America actually has two gun cultures and it is important to distinguish them from one another."

interesting take

The poor woman is sorely misinformed because she sets up a false dilemma, meaning, either a person accepts the gung-ho, uber gnarly gun person, or the person accepts that all cities want to ban guns.

I am a life long gun owner and don't belong to either group. She's just writing to inflame the under informed among gun owners. Her article is of little worth except as an example of the fallacy of the false dilemma. My opinion is worth what you pay for it...

interesting take

One culture (ours) is a gun culture that respects the rights of others and insists that they respect ours.
The other is a thug culture that uses guns aggressively in pursuit of their own selfish interests.
