Is “Gun Culture” an oxymoron?

Gun “Culture?” Sure! With enough bullets in this baby, 
it can bang out the rhythm of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. 
That’s why you gotta have clips that hold lots of bullets.

Primary dictionary definition of “gun”:
A weapon incorporating a metal tube from which bullets, shells, or other missiles are propelled by explosive force, typically making a characteristic loud, sharp noise.

Primary dictionary definition of “culture”:
The arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively: 20th century popular culture.

Mind you, I don’t go as far as this commentator, who I admit makes a strong case for banning guns, period. 

Simply repealing the Second Amendment would do the trick for me, followed by the licensing of hand guns to those with a demonstrable need for self-defense (such as doctors who've received death threats because they perform abortions), and of shotguns and single shot rifles to legitimate hunters.

Hear! Hear!

Finally, someone who understands what must be done to ensure we have some sensible legislation after abolishing the second amendment.

If only we had those legislators in office.
