Costa made mention of the "gun culture". It's not anything but the CULTURE!!!! I have grown up around guns. We hunt and we want to protect our families. I have been taught to respect guns. But more than that I have been taught to respect human life. Gun or no gun- this culture does not respect human life. Thank you satan for muddying the water over and over. Check out the abortion numbers if you don't believe me. People kill with all kinds of things, not just guns. The culture has been conditioned over the years through the public education arena, movies, magazines, music, internet and other avenues to disrespect themselves as well as others. You can remove all the guns but until peoples hearts change it won't make a difference.
