Abstract
This thesis will serve to examine our misconceptions and lack of knowledge about guns and gun violence in the United States. To understand why we as a country are in a political quagmire, a Christian theological account of the fear of death will be given. This understanding of how fear keeps us at polar extremes allows us then to navigate a way to make steps, even if small, with public health ethics as the discipline of choice in order to decrease the number of lives lost each year due to gun violence.
