Probably. An ARMED society is a polite society.
Reality contradicts that. In reality an armed society is a society where people shoot each other for little or no reason. No other developed country has the level of violence America has. The levels of violence, crime and incarceration in America are staggering when compared to any other developed country. So it is just not true that an armed society is a polite society. But I guess if you repeat a lie a thousand times some people will believe it even if it is patently false.

It's all about mentality. In Switzerland every citizen has a fully automatic rifle but you don't see them going on killing sprees.

Humans use the tools immediately available to solve problems. They are more willing to escalate to the biggest hammer they have available when tired, or Hungary or pressured, or denied the sexual pleasure they think they deserve, or...

Sometimes you don't even know that you are somebody's problem. The 4-year-old in yesterday's road-rage shooting in the news yesterday certainly didn't know she was part of someone's problem. No politeness there.

There is a sub-culture within a segment with most of the violence, crime and incarceration in America. You can't just come out today and say who it is because that would be racist but we all know the facts and figures. Without that small segment America would be less violent than Europe. Gun-control is a proxy for race-control.

And few of them possess their guns legally.
