A gun itself is a strong deterent and a great equalizer. It doesn't have to be fired to stop a bad situation from becoming worse.
In fact a handgun with a laser sight generally puts an immediate stop to a situation. Its amazing the power of that little red dot flickering on some guys chest.
Why is the rest of the world concerned about our guns? Got to be jealous. I tell yeah a real gun will grow your pecker 3 inches, give a woman at least one cup size and a real vehicle with a V8 will give it a couple more.
So to recap big guns, big tits and big cars yeah you guy are jealous
When we can see a better future for our nations children we can focus on the non issue; issues.
More a curoisty maybe, that the usa view to guns hasnt changed in a few centuries. originally created to defend against a british invasion but for some reason still in effect.
Although now the excuses have changed, defending from an internal invasion from fellow americans.
Do you think we could like this to the 'death penalty'? Folk have wondered why the US, compared to other civilised countries, stands out with its insistence on using such barbaric practices. It has been suggested that its an off-shoot of a lynch-mob mentality and encouraged by a need to reinforce a homogeneous set of conservative values. Same here?
