In this views on the news author and writer Kevin Yuill shoots from the hip at a series of searching questions on gun ownership posed by young volunteers. The key issue Yuill argues is freedom. The idea of gun culture in the USA is a myth he explains, perpetuated by Guardian readers and movies. Mass shootings are rare and guns are not magical objects making people killers as soon as they lay their hands on one. There is no correlation between gun ownership and gun homicides, yet volunteers in this video find the facts hard to swallow. Distrust of our fellow citizens, unfamiliarity with guns and a degraded notion of freedom maybe to blame we learn, as Yuill sets the record straight.
