    We are the heirs of the Scottish and English Enlightenment.

    And interestingly our manners and mores were shaped by 100 years of the peace from the British Aristocratic Ascendancy.

    We helped write the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

    We have founded and are part of many vital international bodies.

    We have a seat on the United Nations Security Council.

    So naturally we have a lot to say.
    If I have a question about crocodiles or brushfires I will consult you. Till then, sit down at the little table and decorate it how you like.

    We don't tell you (nor assume to know) what works best for your people and your country.

    I think it's very much cultural. We were founded on revolution at an "everyman" level. That was long ago but that mentality is etched in our symbolism as a nation. You just can't say what works for Europe works for America.

    I'm not calling you out specifically. I just see these sort of comments from Europe/British/Australians, etc.

    C'mon, you are constantly telling us what to do. You are telling us what to do culturally. You are telling us what to do legally. You are telling us what to do financially. It's amazing we have been able to resist you, grow stronger, and maintain our own identity.

    But what you do to us, we do to you.

    Sadly you have the illusion guns will protect you. But just look around you here - guns can't protect you on Typology Cenral, even threats can't protect you on Typology Central.

    And look where it has got you - you are impotently threatening a friend and ally.

    A foreign country invading US by land is an extremely unlikely scenario (which could change within a couple of decades though).

    Terrorism is a real threat, but it's not like you'd be allowed to enter with a gun in places where the threat is 'significant' (e.g. planes, stadiums). It's a catch 22.

    It's probably effective to intimidade robbers, but that's pretty nuanced. They usually just want your goods, and putting resistance to that increases the odds that you'd end up dying in the process. In movies, if the thug has a pistol, and you show him an assault rifle, he surrenders. In real life, he shoots you first.

    Your revolution was a bourgeois revolution. And ever since you have done everything you can to stop a proletarian revolution.

    Everyman Revolution is propaganda taught to American school children.

    The American bourgeoisie have controlled America ever since the revolution, and have expended blood and treasure to make sure there is no proletarian revolution, to make sure there there is no everyman revolution.

    I disagree with how this question is framed. When you are discussing "rights" that are in the constitution (as defined by the courts) the onus is on the person who wants to restrict or limit that right to prove why. It is not on the person with the right to have to explain why and how they choose to express it within the law.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age.
