However if it does I think Americans are better off than most of the world's population. We are more accustomed to being armed and have a proud history of such.

Agreed, you already have the culture, skill, and accumulated weaponry beyond that of most other countries, if anything should go down. Long may you continue to hold onto that hard-won historical legacy.
However, its not only left-wing state media which is strongly anti-gun. Here, the major right wing newspapers & commerical TV stations are largely condemnatory. PLUS the main Conservative (Liberal)
party, which you would normally expect to be on the side of individual rights. So apart from the tiny State-based (and much maligned by all sides) Shooters Party
, there is no popular representation in media or politics anywhere willing to give shooters a fair go.
