    This nation really has a problem with guns!

    But do "they" realize "they" have a problem with it?

    What better evidence could we find?
    The nation has a problem with armed robbery, therefore it has to resort to defending itself with guns...

    Maybe we could get a thread split?
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    If you want to outsource your protection to a government agency that won't be able to help when you need it, go right ahead.

    I'll keep putting faith in one of the only things I trust, myself.

    Being aware of your own alienation is the first step towards real freedom.

    But yes, maybe we could have a thread split. You should ask the few lonely Brits that populate some remote parts of this thread.

    But the question is: do you trust yourself?

    Or rather: are you right to trust yourself?

    Why can't the French just be happy for us, instead of bitching about being left out?
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    Well, you put some of your faith in government related agencies. If your house catches on fire, you're gunna call 911. Unless you can shoot down the flames. There are lots of scenarios when almost anyone would turn to publicly funded help.
