That's true. It's a local culture variable. Many of the large urban areas only see crime usage. They prefer to limit access, as they think reasonably in their view, that will limit crime. Empirical question it seems.

That's a utilitarian view as compared to a 'rights' view. Quite common in the discussion of limiting rights. Depending on your politics you buy into different rights limitations. What a surprise.

Talking to inner city residents here - they were upset that local gang kids could easily buy cheap SKS rifles and drive around with them. Some supported the right of law abiding citizens to own guns so NICS was quite OK with them. Some guy who lives in the country may flip out over NICS.

Can't separate local circumstances from people's views in most cases.
