Who vilifies America’s gun culture?
The ‘morally superior’ Europeans who either participated or stood back and watched during the industrial destruction of a people in WW2, and who depended on the force of American arms to pull their asses out of the fire.
The other block that vilifies our gun culture is the American left, for whom the above Europeans represent the paragon of human social development.
As for the rest of the world, most live under the tyranny of rulers who use guns to keep an unarmed population under control. We don’t know what their opinions about America and guns are, and neither should we care, until they can demonstrate they are free peoples.
Growing up in Canada, I was conditioned to consider gun toting Americans as having a serious personality flaw of potentially lethal consequence.
How shocked I was to discover, as an adult, that my father (an ex-IAF officer) had secretly been going to the range and participating in competitions for decades, without my knowing it. He was far from typical tho, in this regard.
After moving to the U.S., and into the rural state of Maine, gun ownership became as natural, if not quite as important, as eating breakfast.
