I think if you grow up in the mountains or high desert, you’re used to seeing people driving around with guns in their trucks in gun racks, and if you didn’t hunt or grow up with guns you certainly knew people who did and it normalizes the behavior. Subjectively, since I did not grow up in the city, I would say a lot of the cadets and trainees I had who were from the city had no exposure to firearms outside the academy, and saw firearms as items which were utilized by police and criminals. I know that’s kind of oversimplified but it’s essentially what we’re looking at.
