Well, Jews and Orthodox would - on average - lean in favor of gun control.
Evangelical Christians - in the US - would be pro-gun on average. My family & extended family are all pro-gun to my knowledge.
On an international scale, Catholics strongly lean in favor of gun restrictions. Spain, Portugal, France, Poland, and Italy do not have a gun culture. The Philippines does not have a gun culture. Quebec does not have a gun culture. Latin America has thousands of people & children dying from American guns, but the general population does not have America’s gun culture.
There’s really nothing you ought to be shocked about. Like I have already said: America’s eccentric attitude on guns is unique to America and it is not linked to the Catholic faith. Do you think I am making this up?
I expected from the beginning of this thread that nobody’s mind would be changed, since this is an issue that is deeply rooted into people, often from childhood. But you might at least ask yourself how much your affection/hobbyist relationship with firearms could be affecting your views. Maybe you don’t want to be convinced.
