American Gun Culture
Glad to see Gail Collins at NYT tackle one of the under-covered aspects of "American Sniper"--what she pictures as the insane final scene where Kyle walks through the house, with kids around, and points loaded gun at his wife. It's "all in fun" and, wait for it, his wife has said this indicated to her that actually he was getting healthy and back to his fun-lovin' self! You know, the guy loved to point loaded gun at TVs and pretend to shoot bad guys. Gail frames all this with current gun control battles.
