Gun culture in USA

The United States is the only industrial nation seized in recent years to torment at length about its own predisposition to violence and to set up a commission to investigate it, the only nation associated with having its own "right" to carry weapons. Many Americans believe that people have a right to bear arms and that it is the greatest protection of their individual rights and a firm protection of democracy. The American Constitution, written over two hundred years ago, allows an individual to hold and carry a weapon. In 2000, the FBI estimated that 66% of the 15,517 murders that year were committed with guns.

There has been deadly footage in recent years in which many teenagers involved have transformed the issue of gun control into a major debate in American politics. Since the Americans have different opinions about the gun laws, it is not easy to agree between them. There are NRAs that are against stricter gun laws, and there are HCIs who want stricter gun laws. Both of these organizations have their reasons for believing that they are right, and the other party is wrong on it.

The American Constitution which gives the people the right to keep and bear arms in its Second Amendment - It reads: 'A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.'1 But what is the reason why Americans have this behavior about guns and why can’t they agree with each other?
