Honestly the whole play shotgun v. lethal chocolates thing is just a byproduct of American politics. On one hand, you have a product that was banned because a handful of people were worried that it would cause an accidental death. On the other hand, there's an entire industry that is more or less based around killing things, but it's OK because of the Constitution (what they say) and because the industry has deep pockets (what it actually is).
Or actually, not sure if I should laugh or cry, I think it's just sad actually. Everytime someone tries to get a weapon change law in USA it allways retilates back "but our rights blabla, constitution blabla"...
Are really the avarage Joe in America thinking this is O.K or is it just the ****ed up politicians who thinks that?
More to the point: If guys like the retard in that video think the government is willing to blow up its own citizens in plain daylight to advance some dastardly, secret agenda, then why would it not be willing to assassinate loudmouth jagoffs like Alex Jones?
If the government was as evil and all-encompassing as these truthers/infowars people want to believe then people like Alex Jones would be silenced and murdered. Their very existence sort of negates their own theories.
Well, this is a complicated answer. The problem is that there are tons of different people in the country and it's hard to pinpoint a normal. I mean, in the south and midwest it seems the normal person could still very well be the super Christian gun toting truck driving American. If you go to the coasts, however, your normal person is much more 'European' (can't think of any better way to say it, just know you guy would get along better with us). Of course, there are also tons of people that are a mix of the two who are dotted around the country. When I think of the middle, my cousins come to mind. They're pro gun control democrats, but their basement is pretty much an armory because they figure they may as well use the rights they have.
The problem is only further complicated by our two party government, where you only have two extremely polarized views represented.
Honestly, I think the consensus right now is more gun control, but the disagreement lies in how to do it.
Racer X is actually one of the government's leading disinformation agents.
Uff...thanks for explaining
Gun controll is the way to go I think. Banning guns in US would led to a riot, but more strict controll could work. As you say it is hard beeing from outside to understand how people think, but I hope that more and more people understands that more and easly accesable weapons = more victims of weapon desperados. The problem is the attitute: The only thing which can stop a badguy with a gun, is a goodguy with a gun.
And about the conspiracy thing linked above...jesus christ lol...rofl
Let's get this straight. Even though it puts children in potential danger, because its part of your traditions and culture you think its weird that anyone would oppose you and your killing device of choice. Are we talking about chocolate eggs or guns?
Well, statistically there are 0 kinder egg deaths in the USA because they are dangerous, used by terrorists for snacks and thus in the support of freedom, banned. So if even 1 child death occurs due to accidental gunfire, they are more lethal than kinder eggs.
We are in the midst of a crisis. Kids all over America are dying by chocolate eggs with deadly implements hidden within. We must arm the citizens of the world with Kinder Eggs! The best defense against a bad kid with a Kinder Egg is a good kid with a Kinder Egg. Our Amendment rights to bear delicious chocolatey eggs with a surprise inside shall not be infringed!
