Oh. Also, you do know that that full-sized Springfield XD, pictured, depending on caliber, holds between 10 and 16 rounds, don't you??? Are you sure
that's not too many???
I didnt, but your right.
So, why isnt it enough for you? why do you need even more, higher powered weapons in your suburban home if that indeed holds 10-16rounds?
You seem to be genuinely concerned. But, I think that where we reach an impass when discussing these things, is simply the result of a completely
Those who are truly trying to comprehend the mind of the average American Citizen, really has to walk a few years in our shoes.
It's just like the cultural differences, in the foods that we like to eat! Or the past times that we enjoy. Different strokes, and all that.
We don't understand how some cultures can get so violent at a football game! Or eat something that looks like it had been lying on the side of the
road, for days.
We do understand things like symbolisms, though.
Guns, to us, are more than just a means for defense, or a way to provide a meal, or an enjoyable hobby, or a challenging sport, or a lucrative
investment, or a work of art, or a mezmerizing, poetic, symbiosis of motion.
They are a symbol of Freedom. They represent the true Spirit of those who faught and died to protect our way of life! And, some of us still want to
remember those heroes, and uphold all that they held dear!
What those who don't live in America fail to understand, is that there is a vast difference in cultures and ideologies that exists right here in the
USA. Those who live in or very near to large cities, have a very different view of things like guns, and crime, and community. And as such, the ones
that need to be schooled and admonished in the responsibilities and necessary compromises, regarding things like guns, are those very people.
If someone could create a map, of gun crimes related to population densities, the color charts would flow out to nothing from each and every major
U.S. town. From where I stand, "gun crime" is a city problem, and not an American problem...
But we all get lumped together. As if those of us who tend to help our neighbors, but generally mind our own business, have anything to do, with some
punk thug trying to prove to his homies, that he is a man...
