  •  Gosh, somebody needs to tell countries like New (6+ / 0-)

    Zealand, with their puny 22.6 guns per 100 people and strict gun control laws, that they need to Rambo up like the United States, with it's 88.8 guns per 100 people and hardly any gun control laws at all.

    After all, New Zealand has a gun homicide rate of 0.16% per 100,000 people.  With a little more faith in the safety of the freedom they could have a gun homicide rate like ours, 2.97% per....oh, wait...

    Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed. --Herman Melville
