    Good read. Although it makes me sad to hear all of them say that if it were like that in China, it would be a blood bath. Even if its a constant struggle and fight to keep our rights at least we have them.

    Did you notice the big hole in the ammunition case where the .380 should be.

    Quoted "I’m a 40 year old American. I hope that my comments can help you understand the nature of guns in America.

    Guns have been a part of American life from nearly the beginning of the settlement of North America. Ownership of guns is protected by the 2nd amendment to the Constitution. Some of the thinking about guns in early America deal with the possibility of being owned by the King of Britain (who was thought of as a villain). The British philosopher John Locke said (basically) “all governments get their right to govern from the people.” This is true of all governments: fascist, democratic, communist & socialist.

    Compared to other Western democracies, there is a great deal of gun violence in America. However, the vast majority of gun owners use them for hunting and a sense of self-protection. There are many laws against using guns for any reason besides hunting. So in America, it’s OK to own a gun, but there are strong restrictions on how you can use one. You can use a gun for hunting and to protect your house (once a criminal has entered), but any other use generally has a strong law against it.

    Personally, I don’t like guns and I will never own one. I can feel protected against gun owners because I know our police are extremely good at catching murderers. Even a nice American jail is a bad, bad place. Also, the American culture has become used to the idea of guns. There are some families where it’s very normal to own a gun, and I feel (mostly) confident that such people are not mad killers.

    Generally, you will find more gun ownership in rural areas and less in urban and sub-urban areas. Guns are a normal part of life in rural America. In the city, there are rules about carrying a gun and if it is hidden. These laws can depend on the individual state (eg California might be different from Texas).

    Certainly what I have said doesn’t cover the entire story (there is still the cultural meaning of guns and the psychology of guns), but I hope what I’ve written will give a better understanding of how guns are part of American culture.
    "




    This guy is an ingorant fool. Read the part in bold. So he means that after he is murdered the police will avenge him. Great! I'll keep a gun and just protect myself.

    The Chinese haven't offended me. I would never subject them to such a raw deal.

    It does seem the Chinese have a pretty good grasp of why Americans have guns......even in Wally-World.

    Thanks for the link.

    This may sound harsh but the bloodbath they mentioned might be the key to China becoming a free state. Of course too many others would get involved, but I think it might actually be for the betterment of China.

    Harsh, I know.
