"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??"

Of course they are related, but you seem to be hinting at the wrong direction for the causal relationship.

The attitude influences gun ownership for certain purposes (not all gun ownership - there are lots of good reasons for having guns that have nothing to do with crime or hurting people)... people are not discovering they have a pile of guns and then going looking for a way to use them.
