One thing though is being from the UK it's amazing how different it seems the Amercians are from us English people, from killing people to owning guns to the anger and outrage and so one.
While we may speak the same language it seems in many ways we just aren't the same. It makes me sad to see this whole issue happening and how we as humans are developing and becoming.
You do realize that one of the main reasons guns are so engrained in our culture is that we needed them to get your nation's boot off our throat, don't you? As for how "we as humans are developing and becoming" you should probably do some light reading into the history of man. We are beasts. Look at the bloody eagle the Norsemen used to make out of their enemies. The beheadings in the Middle East. Genocidal wars in Africa and the Baltics. There is a sadly almost unending list of the barbarity of man versus man.
For cryin' out loud, your street rioting incident is less than a year old. The UK is far, far, far from a peaceful utopia. Well...it might have been for the British when they were practicing colonialism for hundreds of years and dominating native populations like I would dominate the "world's most sexy" charts if such a thing existed.
But they don't, so I must waste my sexy on the unwashed masses here at OO.
