Gun culture

Yesterday I heard a talk by Bill Edgar (Westminster Seminary) about Christian perspectives on culture. As part of the background he considered the famous line, often associated with Nazi leaders:
"when I hear the word culture, I reach for my gun"

There is a fascinating history on Wikipedia about the actual origin and context of the latter saying in the Nazi play, Schalgeter.
