Unfortunately, this video doesn’t start its explanation of America’s “love affair” with guns by pointing out that we’re armed against government tyranny. It also fails to highlight the fact that our natural, civil and Constitutional right to keep and bear arms is not dependent on the democratic process or arguments based on social utility (which are front and center here). But it gets there, eventually. Thankfully. Educationally. And then the video goes off the deep end . . .
lumping in teenagers (i.e. gang bangers) with “children” to inflate anti-gun stats. Using the word “conflate” to diss the link between guns and liberty.
None of this fully answers the question, IMHO. Why do Americans love guns? [h/t JK]
