Over-generalization ...

No, seriously.

If you look at who is committing gun murders in modern times, it is by and large "marginalized" (economically disadvantaged, poor, whatever) young men who are in criminal gangs.

And, if you do the research, guess who was committing all of those horrible murders and getting in gunfights in the Old West?

Yup. "Marginalized" young men who were in criminal gangs.

Joe Cowpoke and Jane Farmwife, though they had MUCH more ready access to guns than the average person does today, weren't out killing people with them. For Joe Cowpoke, his gun was a tool - you could put down an animal with one if needed, or defend yourself from human or animal if you had to (being dragged by the stirrup by a runaway horse was every cowboy's fear, for example). For Jane Farmwife, the lever action or shotgun that was kept in the house was great for killing that night's dinner, or for taking care of the rattlesnake in the back yard.

The people that were killing other people with guns were criminals, almost exclusively.

Just like today.

Strange, isn't it?
Sure there are/were statistical 'reasons' but you summed up the REAL reason at the end. Joe Cowpoke's 'tool' also served as an equalizer against the criminal element. Remember ...

Ironically, the West isn't even the "Wild West," but the East is.

e.g. Baltimore, DC, Hartford

yep all this crap about "blood running on the streets" when all the concealed carry laws were coming about, and that just hasn't happened. fighting more of this is just beating a dead horse. maybe one day they'll focus on putting, and keeping, violent criminals in jail.

You wanna talk about " Wild "

Go within Baltimore city limits.

You can not even begin to comprehend what takes place in our city.

I am a part of a group of Bearded men who give back to the community and I've not only walked through the valley of death, I've handed lunch bags to those who would take your life for a bottle of water.

It's jungle out there and the people " running " this state are either the most deranged humans in existence or f'ing genius with an agenda that we couldn't imagine to fathom.

If Virginia's the Wild West, Maryland's the lady's shoe department at Sears.
