WHAT IS WRONG WITH US? Trying to make sense of another mass shooting in tonight's blog post.
I can just take myself as an example: Born during a civil war, I grew up around guns - my Dad was in the army and later in the police reserve - and I have a healthy respect for weapons as they can be both your friend and enemy.
Once, in Ireland I had along talk witha guiy about guns and whatnot. after a while I understood that his perspective was like yours....His country had been in a shooting war in living memory (at that time), there were firefights in teh street and people had no romantic attachement to guns.
