Americans own guns for 4 reasons.
1.Self defense. ...
2. Hunting. ...
3. Home defense. ...
4. Protection against the government. The United States of America is ~ 300,000,000 strong. While a well armed police force could roll through almost
any European city, that is absolutely NOT the case here in the US. ...
You just watch how easily it will happen. Unless people own tanks, machine guns, various gas mixes, and other gadgets you guys not going to be much of
an issue if push comes to shove, however I hope you win, for all of our sake.
...We keep our government in check. We allow ourselves to be governed, but as a people, we will NOT allow any government to become too powerful.
way to go, nice controlling of your government. I especially liked the previous war in the Middle East. I also admire how your government stole the
welth from around the world, apparently with the approval of its people. correction, it's not the goverment per se, but they are on the take anyway
In your ignorance, you make jokes about Americans being insecure, and say that we only need guns to feel more manly and adequate, but we feel that gun
ownership is a God given, inalienable right, and ABSOLUTELY necessary to keep our government aware that WE are in control of this great nation.
Who jokes? I don't. We all feel insecure, and those who don't are distracted by shiny toys, lust of the flesh and other human vices. And once again,
sadly neither you nor us are in control.
I feel sorry for you that you are so easily convinced by your government that you don't need protection from them. You say that that your country is
"past that phase", but I say that you are an ignorant, trusting fool.
Yes, Europe by and large has past that phase, but in a different way. we still need protection from "them", but there are other methods. angry
people with guns give governments an excuse to introduce a martial law and all the nice perks that come with it.
I'm not sure which European country you are from, but which ever one it is, it was not that long ago when good American men were DYING to help
protect the FREEDOM of YOUR people and country that you obviously enjoy today.
I am sorry to shutter your delusions, but "FREEDOM of OUR people" is not why american people bravley died in Europe. And it's not the reason why
good American and brave soldiers die today in other parts of the world. Besides, if you refer to WW2, you better check the history books and see
people of which nation had the largest contribution to the war effort in terms of brave soldiers sacrificing their lives, and in terms of the
longevity of involvment.
While you may take this for granted, at least hold your tongue and show at least a small amount of respect for a nation that GAVE SO MUCH so that you
may have the right to laugh at, and disrespect her people today. Good day.
please see my comment above.
