I'm surprised that with all the public comments about gun control, Second Amendment rights, etc., not one article I've seen has zeroed in on one big fact: Most gun violence involves males using guns as weapons. Whether it is gangs, domestic violence, deranged or emotionally crippled individuals, predominantly more men than women resort to violence using guns.
All the major horrific killings that have taken place at schools, theaters, shopping malls have been at the hands of men, or more accurately, young men. Why women are less prone to "go postal" than men is a subject that needs further discussion, understanding and remedies. The male mind apparently is wired differently than a woman's.
Perhaps cultural and societal differences have influenced women to handle their grievances in ways that don't initiate physical attacks using guns as weapons. Perhaps our culture rich in historical sagas of Western settlers taming the West with six- guns, the glorification of action films over the top with gunbattles, and a desensitivity to killing in general, and society breaking down with family bonds and responsibilities on the ebb, have played a part in our society's growing disassociation between morality and savagery.
