Guns and the Soul of America

David Brooks – The New York Times:

The real reason the gun rights side is winning is postindustrialization. The gun issue has become an epiphenomenon of a much larger conflict over values and identity.

That, and as one of the few I implicitly trust said, “we’re just mean people.”

It’s the culture, stupid.
