Our ideals are different.... '
Here is what I see from many of our European members :
"Nothing in my house is worth taking the life of a criminal"
(you worked for it, you payed for it, why LET someone else just take it and most probably never get caught as burglary rates solved are in the single
digits just so they can do it again and again... or even worse, the criminal is violent and rapes / murders. And NO we are not psychic and know if the
criminal is armed or not or what his intentions are but allot of our anti-gun friends think people are psychic and know if a criminal is armed or
Here is the American view
"Nothing in my house is worth YOUR life"
We don't care if a criminal gets shot though it usually doesn't come to that... better them (The Sons of Beeches performing a crime) than us.
Criminal will possibly face instant death and it IS a huge deterrent.
Also, we don't want to turn into a "victim" society as we see overseas, banning knives, coddling criminals, prosecuting those who defend
themselves... That kind of behavior is Insane and Naive to us bordering on stupidity.
