Because the terrorists have guns
I give it about 5 minutes before a bunch of people in here start attacking you for being a bigot or race baiter.
How dare you mention the link between mass shooting and white people.
To be fair, mass shootings in non-white communities via drive bys and gang shoot outs have been going on for years. It's just the media and most people don't care because it happens in poor neighborhoods made up of people who aren't white.
There is something with whites and these types of mass shootings. Though to be fair in recent years the mass shooters have been a bit more colorful, we've had some black ones, a few middle eastern ones etc. It seems to have a weird cycle.
As for any meaningful change to gun culture, good fucking luck. The Government has been trying to alter the behavior of people since the 50's and it hasn't really had the effect they wanted. Hitting gun manufacturers means they move across the border like any good American business and people like this will still be able to get their weapons. Come on, gun running is like the 3rd-4th biggest money maker for the Cartels. We cannot even stop the human trafficking that goes on let alone stop people from getting their hands on something they do want.
Another issue is that people have a narrow view on gun culture, every time people think of rednecks or whatever. Yet American gun culture is far, far bigger than that. We have multi-billion dollar industries built on gun culture, I mean baltimore and chiraq do exist. No group of people in the US is immune from it. Our media celebrates it, Hollywood makes movies about it, Rappers and other musicians make songs about it and the people cannot get enough of it.
