The right to bare arms is engrained in the American psyche and will not be changed. It is worth noting that many Americans do not trust their government or possible future governments.
They may have a point and any attempt to take their guns away would result in a civil war of epic proportions.
The country is diverse though and the attitude between somewhere like Texas and New York is staggering.
That said New York City is the benchmark in policing while Chicago (also very strict gun laws) is the worst with dozens dead every week in gangland shootings.
A colleague of mine in Chicago is a paid up democratic from a jewish family and couldn’t be further from the confederate gun loving nuts. That said he would not give up his gun for anything…he said if the bad guys have em…I will have one.
America has gone too far to turn back.
