You're being stupid. Why don't we ban alcohol and everything else?
Why? WHY?! BECAUSE AMERICANS ARE F***ING STUPID!!!!! And yes, I'm allowed to say this, as I am American. Midwest America, hello all. So on to the
point: we are all effing retarded. We want the things that make us feel most powerful, most happy, and most alive. We love the things that are bad for
us, and hate the things that are good for us. So naturally, if there's a chance of being hurt involved, HELL YES, we're on the wagon. But if we have
to take precautions, or we have to stop for our own safety, give it half an hour before a group of five to eight idiots decide they;re going to sneak
back and take a swing at it. Because we're idiots. That's why other countries don't like America. Remember that whole cheerleaders and jocks
stereotype? We're it. We are the grand icon of brainless musclejockeys and busty airheads. And our country likes us that way, so it encourages it and
makes it easier and more profitable to go that route. Wonder why our education sucks? Because we'll tear everything down and rebuild if we get too
smart. And now, we've come to equate pleasure with heaven. We're addicted to being "Gods", having control over life and death. Do you know what rap
songs talk about today? Busting caps in people you don't like. And you still want your guns freely given? To HELL with that! But no, we're just gonna
keep bleating about our rights so we can keep feeling like we have control over our own lives. At the cost of others.
Why? Because we've been programmed that way. We're programmed to put ourselves above others. That also means stuffing ourselves with stuff we like.
Want a gun? Have 20. And don't forget, you can always use it for self-defense. And now we're so hooked that given a choice between life and death, we
say, "Oh, I'll just kill myself with it. Problem solved." Not literally shoot yourself, just...oh, screw it. If you don't get it, I can't help you,
nor do I want to.
Now we have a problem with guns, and instead of switching to a more promising mode of defense (which has been proven to work in European countries) we
decide we want our rights, even if it does end up killing someone in another state. Selfish, stupid ***holes.
I'm ashamed to be American. If this is what patriotism means, then I'll gladly be a terrorist. At least they don't make pretenses about "self defense"
when they want a gun. I spit on this topic.
