Across much of the United States, it has become increasingly acceptable for Americans to walk the streets with firearms, either carried openly or legally concealed.

The trend could be seen this past week in the Wisconsin city where Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted in two killings.

Armed civilians patrolled the streets near the courthouse with guns in plain view. Meanwhile in Georgia, testimony in the trial of Ahmaud Arbery's killers showed that armed patrols were commonplace in the neighborhood where the 25-year-old Black man was chased down by three white men and shot.

Elsewhere, prohibitions on possessing guns in public could soon change if the U.S. Supreme Court strikes down a New York law.
