Clarifying America’s Gun Culture

Since NBC sportscaster Bob Costas went on his halftime anti-gun rant on Sunday using words written by Fox Sports Columnist Jason Whitlock, we’ve heard a lot from the media and from uniformed commentators about America’s “gun culture.” The fact is, America actually has two gun cultures and it is important to distinguish them from one another.

The first gun culture is deeply seated in American history and her founding. Founding Fathers like George Washington understood that an armed citizenry would prevent government tyranny, which is why we have the Second Amendment. This is a concept rapper Ice-T understands but sadly doesn’t promote in his songs.

“It’s legal in the United States, it’s part of our constitution. You know, that’s the last defense against tyranny,” Ice-T said in a local television interview last summer.

    “The
    very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference
    – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.” George Washington

    We need our guns to keep our government from becoming like Venezuela or Cuba. First think those countries did was to disarm the people after taking control of all the media.

    Costas, Whitlock, and Bill O’Reilly all showed their ignorance of the real gun culture in this country, which is comprised of honest, patriotic folks, not like the thugs that play “professional” sports these days.
