Super! My wife would agree with you very much.

It just seems like if firearms are to exist at all, they ought to be for women only, no exceptions. And so just why exactly, would this be an unlikely scenario ? I suspect the answer must inevitably contain descriptions of entrenched patriarchism, normalized abuse, etc.

Why do you think women would be different gun nuts than men? Women  would change.

He was a Nazi. Video games, mental illness, school prayer, all this dances around the issue. Nazis are radicalizing young white people the way Islamic clerics radicalize young people in their countries.

I think Cruz was Nazi-curious, but never actually joined up. He was just nuts. Will he claim innocent because of it? He was just sick. No, it wasn't a spur of the moment thing. It was planned well ahead of time. He knew right from wrong.

He did not choose only black, Mexicans or Jews to shoot at. That would be Nazi.

In imagining my hypothetical situation, the number of women gun nuts, while not zero, I suspect would be fewer [both proportionally and numerically] than the present number of men gun nuts.

Similar mental illness : How many women want monster trucks ?

Fewer? But the more that wanted guns, monster trucks and political office ... the more would be violent. :-)

Just more women with practical shoes. I have met a few in life. Little different from men.

Is it a systemic problem. Do we raise people not to think critically? Do we teach them to read, believe and react ... not question what they read?

"Gun nuts are the problem." Yep.

One must first describe what a "gun nut" is.  Is it someone who has a concealed carry permit?  Is it someone who collects firearms and likes to shoot them at the range?  Is it someone who likes to shoot at school kids or into crowds or churches?

I submit that only for the last is the term "gun nut" even close to being accurate.  Just plain "nut" would actually be better, because if they didn't have a gun, they'd find some other way to kill people.
