Why Americans can't agree on guns

Colin Woodard, in Tufts alumni magazine, offers a fascinating breakdown on the many differing cultures pocketed around these United States, how we got there and why they stack up to creating a giant roadblock around gun control. I may have to grab a copy of his book, American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America. "There's never been an America, but rather several Americas—each a distinct nation. There are eleven nations today. Each looks at violence, as well as everything else, in its own way."
