The most popular names in Ukraine now are Server and Tractor... so you know, they own Bubba. As for the gun... well I'm still kind of not sure if it's a good thing or not for people to be able to get firearms that easily. For one, your constitutional freedom, gives you right to self-defense, and seriously if you're a maniac and you wan't to kill someone you'll find a way regardless of the gun. But there's that stuff like lately in Virginia...

It's like this, either everyone has guns and are allowed to take them everywhere, or no one has them (wich in practice is impossible to egzecute, and it places the common citizen in a possition of disadventage against the memembers of various crime sindicates and common thugs).

If we were able to develop a gun with a stun function, wich would also had the versatility of a regular gun, and would couse absolutely no damage - the problem would solve itself I guess - the damn thing could shoot, you could hunt with it, and target practice, and regular people wouldn't have acces to the "killing types".

It's still bullshit.

Why not just say, after a German murdered someone, "Oh, there go those silly Nazi's again..."

America is screwed for 2 main reasons :

the laws and leaders are totally wacked
people are even more wacked

seriously, when I look at americans, I see the most unusual "specimens" on the entire face of the planet ... ONLY IN AMERICA could the most idiotic things happen ... I mean it ... take any situation you want ... U.S. will be its main subject ... no hard feelings ... not every american citizen is like that of course ... what I wanted to say is that well ... the weirdest of the weird ones gather there

I didn't tell u that but ... anyway ... instead of reading that "not all americans are the same", you just made my point u know foreigners call us, romanians, gypsies because a lot of them live around and well they are not the fame and fortune of our country u know ... but the point is that if I were to send everyone to go fuck himself for calling us gypsies, I think I'd be 2 meters below right now, u know

well here's how I see things :

USA - kids with guns, people see aliens in their backyard at 2:00 AM, people think that the government holds UFO secrets away from the public
Iraq - NOLF ( no one lives forever )
Siria - you'd better not be a reporter
China - crazy doped kid shots an entire block of people
Russia - we're too lazy to give reasons why we shoot you ... but to comfort you, it was your fault
Germany - cam qvick und cloze za door biheind ... we vouldn't vant peple to hiar za bang, raight ?
Romania - Minimum Sysrem Requirements : 20 years old, male, 20+ members gang, guts to start a fight even when u don't have to, idiot enough to get urself killed for others

You stated your opinion, which I personally find to be an erroneous mass generalization, and I responded with my poignant thoughts. I didn't make any of your "points," merely that I find your statement and those in kind to warrant my abovementioned respons(es).

Look at the bright side - Tiger woods trained at golf from young age to become a pro, like many other football superstars. Perhaps this boy is going to be the most badass cop ever?

Look at the rates of gun crime/accidents in the US compared to other countries.

The fact they issue guns to babys would explain a lot, actualy

Wiser and more advanced life forms than us agree that USA is "the place to be".

It's a well known fact that all across the history every time aliens came to earth they chose to land in the USA.

Who are we to say we know better..?
