If I understand your original OP your question for this thread is basically:
Isn't it hypocritical of US citizens to make demands about another country but do not want citizens of another country making demands of US
Have I got that correct?
If so, I would say that is a very good question. However, your example that you used is terrible (IE handguns and rifles vs. nuclear weapons) I'm
When the horrific incident of Sandy Hook took place, it in no way put anyone say, in the UK at risk. It did not put anyone in China at risk of any
Let us say then that like Aurora or Sandy Hook, this other country that (we'll assume for the analogy for now) has nuclear weapons, and decides to do
the same thing: kill people with them as a first strike.
You do realize that the detonation of nuclear weapons can put a LOT of people on a global scale at risk, correct?
I think your question would have gone over a bit better with a different analogy of some sort. I'm pretty sure you understand that nuclear weapons
being detonated places you in much greater danger than say a US citizen owning a gun.
That aside, my own personal opinion is that citizens of every country on this planet of ours should have the same right to bare arms, if they so
On the other hand, I personally feel that ALL nuclear weapons, globally, should be banned. That goes for any WMD of any kind.
I could really care less what citizens of other countries think what I as a US citizen should or should not have a right to. It's my country and I
live here. They don't. So sure, they can have an opinion, and like belly buttons, everyone has one.
I also don't comment or give opinions about other people's countries myself. As again, it's their country, not mine. And as long as their country
is not threatening my country, I think they should live the way that they want to live (having lived all around the world is what gave me that
So are Americans being hypocritical? Most likely, sure.
But then I could also point to a lot of non-US citizens and show where they are being the same way on some other issues.
