Nobody has argued that violent people don't exist without firearms. But you just said in one sentence that violent people exist, firearms or not, and then in the next sentence you bring up the question of what it is about American "culture" that makes people commit these atrocities. It's not cultural, it's exactly what you said. Violent people exist regardless of firearms, just like you said, but firearms enable people to commit atrocities way beyond what you can do without them, with far less pre-meditation. The difference isn't culture, because we've established that we aren't more or less violent than other cultures, it's practically unlimited access to firearms.Yes I most definitely agree with that statement. My point of posting all that info was to show that violent people exist, firearms or not. I think the real question here that @Juan Derlust already stated in an earlier post, is what exactly is it with American culture that makes people commit these atrocities?
