Do you or do you not see any issues with the culture surrounding guns

Depends. In what context are you talking about? Because if you just sit there and generalize the whole community based on a joke or based on a criminal event, you aren’t looking at the entire picture. You throw the word culture around relating to the gun community but you clearly dismiss the vast majority within the community constantly preaching gun safety, shoot responsibly, secure their firearms properly, and try to educate those who don’t know what the “culture” is all about. It’s not even a culture. It’s in essence your right to self preservation. To answer your question, I see the ignorance surrounding what non-gun owners view as gun culture, as the problem. I see the lack of focus on the sequence of events that lead up to the criminal act mainly what the motive was, as a problem. And I see the constant emotional restrict access, reclassify, and ban it mentality that the other side keeps pushing as another problem.
