Dec 19th 2008 12:13PM This is going to sound odd but the problem in the US is that every single person does not own a gun. LoL thats right. I grew up in a town in Texas. I distinctly remember the first time I met a person that did not own a gun. I was 15. Gasp! Strangely enough there was not one armed robbery or murder the entire time that I lived there and I have not heard of one since I have left. Everyone is polite to each other. Neighbors help each other and things are quite. There was theft but theft is the second oldest profession. I moved to New Mexico and even I was shocked. People not only owned guns but where I was they still wear them on their hip. Criminal activity was absolutely 0%. They had one punishment since there was no law enforcement any closer than an hour away. They were the best people I have ever met in my life, happy and hard working. This is not complete by any means but in short yes violent crime is high here because the assailants know they have a good chance in getting away with the crime. So fellow Americans, don't get a sissy concealed permit. Strap a .45 to your hip for all to see for the sake of peace.
That should get things stirred up.
