There’s no denying that guns and gun culture are toxically macho. They are tied into masculinity to such an absurd degree that some of the most iconic figures in popular culture that men are expected to identify with are gun-toting maniacs: Tony Montana, for instance, or Rambo, or any of a thousand other power fantasy men with a “license to kill” and a womanizing bent.
Gun culture should be stopped.

Gun control, pinkification, and splash damage
[I just “love” how people start out asserting some absurd assumption and insist “there’s no denying” it. One could spend 30 minutes providing data and reason to the entire house of cards built upon it but it’s easier just to say, “There’s your problem!” and let the house of cards collapse on it’s own.
