Watch a tv show from the 50s and compare it to a tv now. The levels of violence that are acceptable are astronomical. Pretending that the US hasn't made a cultural shift towards violence is to be willfully ignorant.

Local level? That doesn't do squat(see Chicago). They want guns they just have to leave Chicago to buy one.

That march was all about people feeling they have the power, and wanting to change.
USA is not over-populated. Straw man. Many European countries have far greater population density without the propblems the USA has.

Only if they are deserving of that respect. If they fail to act on the gun control issues, then they are hardly worthy of respect.
Respect is earned.
