So crazy, we'd rather have a million Benghazi's, than have the government tell us we can't offend Muslims.

So you have your answer. Our constitution defines that we have the inalienable right to own firearms, and well never trade it for safety.

Just like how we allow Nazis and Klansmen the right to speak, we would much rather tolerate that which we don't agree with, than trade it in for security or peace.
im pretty sure americans are one of the most surveilled countries in the world, sorry to say (and that is a serious issue, that we can both agree on) http://rt.com/usa/news/us-surveillance-pen-trap-145/

True. I ruined several afternoons trying to figure out Cricket. Even with a Brit for a tutor. Thank god there was ale.
To be fair, I had a hell of a time trying to explain our type of Football to that same Brit. Though we both agreed US style football is a hell of a lot more entertaining to the untrained eye.

Yeah, well gun ownership is an uphill battle too. We're still trying to fight that crap.

Remember when you asked why we feared government tyranny? Well you just answered your own question. Our gov is completely out of control.

i guess you are right in being prepared, but if you do intend to use a gun, what would you do if you saw a person in your dark house, where the light is off? would you ask him if he is a robber (and let him shoot you) or would you kill him on sight (risking to shoot a loved one)
The bright flashlight on the end of my guarantees this will never happen.

I would argue that watching paint dry is more entertaining to the untrained eye than soccer. But that is just the opinion of a small minded American hick
