somebody who knows somebody who has a gun. Except teh police and military personel.
If anyone's brainwashed here then they are the american gun-nuts who brainwashed themselves into thinking that they must own a firearm.
Since the first person to set foot on this continent, we had guns. Self defense, hunting, personal... the gun/rifle, for centuries, has been a part
of the American citizens life.
There is NO obsession with with guns over here, in fact most US citizens don't own guns... I don't own a gun. The problem is that Europeans are
incredibly misinformed about the US culture.
The right to own weapons is in our Constitution, it is our RIGHT to own a weapon, just as it is our RIGHT to worship any religion that we choose. If
they decide to take a way one right, how soon will it be before they take away another and another and another...
If you look at the party that is trying to remove gun rights, it is the left/Democrats. Not to get political and as much as people don't want to
hear it, and will most likely roll there eye...BUT, the Democrat party, in the US, is a pro-European socialist party. I'm not just saying it to
sling words, but the Democrat beliefs and doctrine are parallel to European socialism and YES, European governments are socialist governments.
My question is why are Europeans afraid of guns, are they are wimps and that they need other people to protect them (sorry, just a sarcastic retort
to DGFenrir's 2nd line).
