The United States is larger than the EU and every country in it combined, excepting Russia, which is mostly empty space anyway.

Our news media covers everything that happens in America. Yours covers what happens in your country, which is the equivalent of what happens in one of our states.

There are plenty of states with open carry that have never had a school shooting happen in them, ever. At all.

What you're doing is called false equivalency. You are equating the United States with the UK, or Germany, or Sweden. This is no different than using the infrastructure and government of New Hampshire to criticize the EU.

See here's the thing, I've been hunting every since I can remember, my mom actually went hunting while she was pregnant with me so I guess technically my first hunt was before I was even born. I've never had a single accident with a gun, not because of some miracle, my father taught me gun safety and now I know all I need to so I can safely operate a gun. And one day, I will be taking my kids to the woods to hunt just as soon as I've taught them proper gun safety, and wilderness survival, hunting ethics, and such but that;s irrelevant. The reason there are many school shootings are the fact we have "Gun free zone" signs plastered all around them. If teachers carried guns and the signs were removed (Obviously the teachers would need to go through gun safety courses and learn how to use them judiciously and accurately) no one would ever consider shooting up a school. But since we have "Gun free zones" or as I like to call them "We're completely unarmed and ripe for destruction zones" people know that if they go to a school there will be absolutely no resistance, just unguarded children. And what you saw in the mall in Texas is by no means a common occurrence, and I'm sorry you had to see such a thing when you came here. I've been living in the deep South in Alabama my entire. Alabama citizens have more guns than the entire country of Spain. I have never once seen anything like that happen or heard of anything like that happening around here. Also keep in mind, we have a population of nearly 319 million people, that's a lot more people to have mental disorders. And many of the gun statistics you see that are just "Gun related deaths", which most anti gun organizations like to use, also count suicides. And that ramps up the numbers for gun violence big time.

Guns also even the playing field. I have a 78 year old grandma, say she's getting mugged by a 6,4 230lb man, well if she's unarmed, she's fucked obviously. No way my Grandma can't fight off someone of that size. But if she has a gun, and he has a gun, they are on even ground, and I've taught her how to shooting and let her practice with it, so now instead of being mugged, possibly injured or worse, she's gonna kill the mugger. And some people say "Well now she's murdered someone for the simply crime of trying to steal and he didn't deserve that, there can be no trial for him, that's unfair and wrong" Well I disagree with anyone who says that. The way I see it, if you attack me, my family, or my friends, you've given up your right to live and I have no problem killing you.

Now I'm not saying that if no one had guns it'd be terrible, there'd be no more shootings and stuff, but also there would be other forms of violence. In many other countries with large populations that have strict gun control stabbings have become very prevalent. but our guns are not only to defend ourselves against robbers and murderers, it's our fail safe to ensure that if the government ever becomes tyrannical or too oppressive, we have means to defend ourselves against our own government. Obviously if the full might of the US military came crashing down upon us, we'd be screwed, but they couldn't do that cause wiping our your population is generally frowned upon and not very helpful in the end. And I for one, don't really trust our government (Big surprise eh?) and I like knowing that if they do ever try anything, I have the means to take out a few of those bastards with me. If I'm gonna die, i'm gonna die fighting.

Now obviously there are a few cons to having so many weapons, mentally unstable people who get and go shoot up some place them will be killed and it's not really their fault for being mentally unstable, and there's obviously other problems. But I for one would much rather live in a world where every american is armed than one where only the government has access to weapons.

Well I'm almost out of characters now... wow sorry for such a long comment lol

Many of our adolecents actually own shotguns as well but shooting up schools is a very rare occurrence that the world loves to thank 'Murica for.

A lot of people hunt over here, my boss is on a hunting trip right now with his thirteen and twelve year olds.

Well it depends on what you consider a "rare occurrence". Close to every week I read about a shooting that went terribly wrong that ended in the lives of kids who barely got to live and the assailant taking his own life. Obviously i'm not stupid enough to assume that every kid owns a gun and wants to shoot up, but you have to admit that it IS a problem that the US has.

A lot of people hunt over here too, however there are strict rules. You can't be under 18 (which i think is a decent age considering most people below that can't tell their ass form their elbow), you need to pass several "tests" to get your hunter's permit and its not just a case of having "adult supervision". I'm not saying that your boss is an awful father/mother, but I personally wouldn't take my kids out hunting when they're 12-13 years old. To me that just seems like bad judgement.

Like I said, we don't have a similar gun culture in Europe. There is no law that allows us to bear arms, and I reckon if there was one, it would have been repealed hundreds of years ago. Honestly though i've been to the US loads of times i've friends in Oklahoma and Texas and I know none of them are likely to be potential murderers, but I still saw a lot of shit that I wouldn't have seen in Europe. As an example I was at a mall with my friends in Houston and all of a sudden there were like 10-15 cop cars and we all had to run into safey cos some bloke was waving his gun around. Kinda glad that I don't experience situations like this weekly/monthly/yearly in Norway if you know what I mean

I'm pretty sure it just means if you stick to those foods in the trapezoid, even if you overeat a bit, it wont cause too much of a spike in caloric intake. If you eat things like bread and pasta without being very cautious you can double or triple the amount of calories you eat without eating that much more food.

Yap, the whole "DONT EAT CURBS HURR DURR" shit is unnecessary, just make sure to eat the more healthy carbs and stay within a fixed calorie limit (1900 cal for example) - voila you're loosing weight

It's a way to try to get people to have good morals
If you look at it, every religion is basically tell you to be a good person and not a cunt and that's a good thing, but not everybody follows it right

i am not religious myself but i do see a good reason to believe in something greater than yourself
it gives people hope, a code to live by, common ground with the people around them
for some people it takes away the fear of the unknown by giving some explanation to things like the supernatural and the afterlife

yeah, some people have used and abused religious belief for their own gain or to further an agenda
but abusing a system can and has been done with literally every other thing in exitance

like i said, i dont believe in a god or higher power or spiritual diatie
but i think that truly believing in something like that and being a kinder more loving person because of it is a beautiful thing and should not be shit on so readily

"why do people believe that theres some dude in the sky who has a grand plan for you"
is not an argument.

Also "Honestly I'd rather be a good fucking person" is like saying religious people in general are bad persons.

Think about what you said and maybe be a little bit more productive the next time, because your arguments are basically those of religious extremists only reverted.

Fuckig thank you. I'd like to think I'm a good guy. I mean I'm a Christian and I haven't had many opportunities to help out in my town but I help when I can. I help feed hr homless, I'll throw some money in a cup if I see someone begging, and last I heckled I haven't been convicted of any major felonies or had any jail time in general. I'd say I'm a decent person.
