Not quite. Gun ownership is legal, but almost entirely confined to rural areas. Gun ownership in the cities is almost unknown. There is strict control over the types of guns bought and sold. Farmers and ranchers tend to own hunting rifles and shot-guns; concealed handguns are illegal. Almost no one owns automatic weapons.
This idea that citizens have a right to own grendade launchers and gattling guns does not pervade the public. It is thought to be quite bizzarre in fact. Large scale demonstrations are by large held without the use of guns.
