A nation that demands liberal gun ownership and consider it part of their freedoms and rights and fiercely defends such culture is indeed threatened and tries to protect itself from many threats.
They are not harmonious enough to trust each other; they do not trust the government institutions to protect them or not to attack them; such a nation and state can hardly be called a nation or a state.
And above that this indicates that the national character is tormented.
What they need is government control before gun control; and to heal a tormented their nation.
