"I really get tired of people with child-like analytical skills failing to fully grasp the real message in the numbers.... it is a societal, cultural problem - not a simple matter of available firearms, but a willingness to see them as a legitimate solution to problems, stoked by militarism, a self-righteous self-image, mythologies about the western marshal or the tough cop, racially based fears and dislikes, criminal subcultures aided and encouraged by a primitive justice system, and so on."

And you don't think that the ready availability of guns is somehow linked to the willingness to see them as a legitimate solution to problems etc??
