Gun Culture


Gun Culture

Over the past century, gun usage and its portrayal in the media, movies and press has shifted dramatically. In this exhibit, we take a look at the reasons behind these changes.


For example, modern gun culture has been shaped by concerns over national identity, current events, and concepts of individual rights and safety, but, historically, the reasons for firearm usage were vastly different than from what they are today.

Explore the history of guns and gun ownership, and learn how shifting cultural and political movements have affected society’s views on firearms and whether they should or should not be used.
