    Re: Gunfire and moments of fear, rural Oregon school

    Culture: The sum of total of the learned behavior of a group of people that are generally considered to be the tradition of that people and are transmitted from generation to generation.

    Examples:
    Getting a gun for opening a bank account.
    Seeing thousands of gun murders per year on movies and TV.
    Losing 30,000 citizens per year to gun violence.

    America's gun culture is a learned behavior. It not a normal behavior and it is especially not a desirable or productive behavior. (See: The rest of the civilized world.)

    We learned it. We can unlearn it.

    (See: Japan and Australia)

    I dunno. Seems like Hollywood, entertainment business as usual.

    Half of which are suicides, not only legal, but no danger to society at large. Many by law enforcement, average citizens in self defense.

    All the while you choose to ignore the passive benefit of deterrence which inhibits home invasion.

    Whatever it is, I hope I learned it well.

    I see nothing in either country, Japan or Australia to envy.
