When I was between 4 and 7. My grandpa kept a 22 and shotgun leaning against the front door frame- bullets were in a drawer close by. I was taught not to touch the guns. That was the culture in the mountains of Ky. There was no gun violence then. I can remember living in Texas where the ranchers had their rifles hanging on a rack across the back window and no one thought anything was abnormal- it was abnormal if you did not have a gun rack. Society has totally changed.

Agree. Same here. I was taught to shoot and hunt not long after I learned to walk and ride a horse. Always with a strict teaching of respect for animals, not to kill for whim or pleasure, and to have great care with firearms, not wear them to the supermarket or display them in the rear window of pickup trucks like today's ammosexuals.

Gun laws and regulations need to be stricter nationwide. It's pointless regulate them in one city or state when neighboring cities and states allow easy access to them.

I can recall clearly how before the USA lifted the ban on military-type weapons, the worst firearms used by armed criminals in Mexico were old AK-47's for which they had much difficulty getting bullets. Now brand new military style firearms are common within every criminal organization, including .50 cal. Barretts. Something we used to never see.
