The Political Pagan: Why Conservatives Love Guns So Very, Very, VERY Much | Why Conservatives Love Guns So Very, Very, VERY Much? | Scoop.it
Mahilena Dianz's insight:

I think the root causes for conservatives' intense gun-love are (1) overwhelming fear of the changing world of increasing cultural and ethnic diversity that we live in, and in response to this fear, (2) a desire to cling to an idealized past version of America that (has never existed) and they find more reassuring. That is to say, conservatives are both very very scared and very very nostalgic.
