The article discusses the role of reforming gun culture to prevent gun-related violent crimes in the U.S. Though statistics show the extremely high levels of gun violence in the country, the use of guns cannot be prevented since the Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantees the right of citizens to bear arms. It is asserted that gun control legislation will not resolve the gun violence problem in the U.S.
