24. Not really, no

"culture war"? If there's a culture war, it's urban vs rural, people who grew up hunting, got an air rifle as kids and then a .22, were taught to shoot from an early age, who live in the sparsely-populated rural countryside, in the South, and the Midwest, vs people who live in densely populated urban areas where there's nowhere to hunt and no good reason to have a gun. It doesn't really help that a lot of those rural gun-owning Southerners and Midwesterners and Westerners are the descendants of violent Scots-Irish rednecks who've inherited a cultural distrust of government reinforced over generations in sparsely populated areas with weak government and police protection (and a lot of urban residents are descendants of more recent immigrants, or more recent immigrants themselves, from places with no history and culture of private firearms ownership).
