Guns are not the problem. a CULTURE OF VIOLENCE is the problem. [View all]
We Minnesotans and North Dakotans love our guns, but our rates of violent crime are as low as Western Europe. Why? Because we do not have a culture of violence. The most violent places in the country are:
1. Poor inner city communities infested by gangs.
2. Areas of the Deep South in which a violent "honor culture" inherited from Planter aristocrats and Scots-Irish ruffians runs deep.
Outside of those areas the rates of violent crime are much lower.
