Melissa Block http://wfpl.org en On Gun Ownership And Policy, 'A Country Of Chasms' http://wfpl.org/post/gun-ownership-and-policy-country-chasms The ideological gulf between gun owners and non-gun owners is a wide one — made all the more obvious by the ongoing debate over what, if any, gun control measures should be adopted in the U.S.<p>Sometimes, the debate feels like people are coming from different worlds, even for people within the same family.

Next to the small white church lies its most recent grave site: that of Charles Foster Jr.<p>While the mass killings in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo., garnered a frenzy of news coverage, statistically, they are not the norm. Each year, thousands of gun homicides in the U.S. — 11,000 in 2010 alone — attract little or no media attention.<p>In those killings, the victim is most often a minority male between 15 and 25 years old and shot in an urban area.
