An Encouraging Obstacle to Gun Control


American gun culture has become wide and deep, crossing party, demographic and ideological lines, thus making it harder for the victim disarmament lobby to get its way. See this encouraging article in the Christian Science Monitor on gun and ammo sales skyrocketing, thanks to a wide range of American consumers:

“There’s the sort of stereotype that gun owners were middle-aged Republican white men who were fairly easy to isolate . . . in order to regulate them out,” says Brent Mattis, a shooting instructor in Florida. “Now that more women are owning guns, more liberals are owning guns, and just average everyday people who want to keep themselves and their family safe. It’s turning into an incredibly strong political phenomenon.”
