Last week's news. A man in some other state was refused a drink at a restaurant because he was getting a little too drunk and he went out to his truck, got a gun and started firing at the ceiling because he was mad. Is this why he carries a gun in his truck?
Week before's news. Man walks into a coffee shop one morning and shoots four police officers eating their breakfast point blank. They never found the guy as far as I heard.
What is wrong with this country? We're brainwashed from a young age to believe that we live in the best country in the world. Sure, there are a lot worse places to be in the world, but why do I have to worry every time I get in my car that someone might get angry and get out of their car and shoot me? Why do I have to worry about drive-by shootings or getting caught in the crossfire while I come home from work on the subway through dangerous neighborhoods? People in developed countries shouldn't have to worry about these things. These are things you worry about when you live in a war zone... or Mexico and their drug wars. Not in the "best country in the world". I've been looking at some websites and it looks like at least 40% of Americans have firearms in their house. That's just sick. We say it's for self defence, but if we didn't have guns in the first place, we wouldn't need guns for self defence. It takes a lot more effort to kill someone with a knife or other object than to just simply push a button.
I'm sick of it. I don't want to turn on the news any more. I promise you I'll never be shot in Korea (unless Kim Jong Il takes some drastic measures). Sure, I might get hit by a motorcycle, but at least that would be an accident. I'm not saying Korea is a land of paradise, but don't listen to that crap that we're so lucky to live in America and if you were born in another country you would be so unfortunate.
