I have been to Germany many times. And I have many friends there. Even though they are all highly educated, and one a large international business
owner, they didn't understand the US gun laws at all. Why should I think you would be different? No doubt you get most of your news from BBC or
similar over there. They won't tell you the real story, they can't, they don't get it either. The US differs from Europe. Our nation was founded
with guns, during the time of guns being the primary arms in any conflict. Our nation expanded it's borders during the time of guns. Our founding
fathers, fleeing oppression in Britain, sought to ensure the same would not eventually happen here. That is why our founding document, the
Constitution, says what it does. That is why all laws are based on that document, or are supposed to be. We are currently enduring a radical
rethinking, pushed by the forces of the left. These are some of the influences we left behind in Europe those many years ago. Many of us are already
brainwashed to the new thinking. But many more of us are not. Let's hope the political process can sort this all out.
I was not aware the GDR government was overthrown in Germany. When did that happen???
