2. There are those among USa who believe they need one, some, more or better 'killing tools'

Also, Americans' attitudes about guns are influenced by the ethics of being willing to kill.

There are those who take the 'do not kill' commandment to heart.
There are others who believe they need one, some, more or better 'killing tools'.

5. Some of the more interesting bits of that paper:

 

http://www.davidfortunato.com/jpp2020.pdf

The disinterested reader will be entirely unsurprised to find out that
Republicans are unsupportive of the rights of a presumably Black man-
but then the authors go on to say a few more things out loud (emphasis added)


pp.10-11

...For white Democrats, there is also a clear race–gender effect, but a very different one. Molly is significantly more supported in purchasing a gun than any other treatment. Further, Ebony elicited significantly higher support than either masculine name, but still significantly less support than Molly. Support for firearm availability for DeShawn and Connor is effectively identical, suggesting that white Democrats have a clear preference for gun availability for women relative to men, but are especially supportive of gun availability for white women in particular.

These differences in white Democratic and Republican reactions to the race–gender prime are interesting and suggest alternative processing mechanisms. The uptick in support for gun availability when primed with women, and white women in particular, for white Democrats may suggest a deviation from baseline levels of support for protective purposes–the notion of women being able to protect themselves from potential threat results in an increase of typically lower baseline support for gun availability. Conversely, white Republicans’ response to the primes suggests exclusionary intent. That, when primed to think of a Black man, white Republicans’ typically higher baseline support for gun availability is decreased in order to prevent Black men from accessing firearms. In other words, low levels of white Democratic support for gun availability can be coaxed upward when primed with stereotypically vulnerable populations, and high levels of white Republican support for gun availability can be coaxed downward when primed with Black men...

p. 13:

...Previous literature established that men and women differ in their support for gun control. But we find that the effect of gender runs deeper. When evaluating the right to buy a firearm, the average white American is much more supportive of women owning guns than men. This holds true across both gun owners and non-gun owners, and for both men and women. And although white Republicans do not exhibit higher support for female handgun owners across white primes, we do observe this pattern for white Democrats in particular, and the relationship is strong enough to hold when pooling the party groups....


I've always known gun control was racist, I wasn't aware of the sexist part of it.
