Gun worshippers, Son worshippers


It is an odd and misguided exercise to attempt to find particular politicians or the NRA to blame in the defeat of the latest gun bill effort. The blame actually goes to a large chunk of the American people: the ones for whom gun worship is as much a part of their psyche as the worship of God or Jesus. This widespread, religious-like worship of guns is the reason nothing will happen in gun-control legislation.
