In Passing

Heller 1

The American Experiment

Roberta X:
The United States just got uniquer  (footnote: Yes! Not a word and not even a logical notion. Work with me here!).  We were already just about alone in the world with respect to firearms; and now we’re the only nation I know of where previous restrictions of the inalienable, inherent right to self-defense and the keeping of arms have been rolled back.

Think of it for just a moment: your shooting hobby -- let alone carrying for self-defense -- would be nearly impossible in most of the “First World” countries save Switzerland, utterly impossible in a few; and hardly easier in the next tier of nations.  Nope, the States are just about alone in this wonderful idea that you have a right to defend yourself against aggression using the most effective means the human mind and hand has yet produced.  Here, even The Fed’ral Gummit has admitted your life has value and you’ve a right to the best tools to protect it.  Everywhere else, well, y’might be dog food.

The baddie you stop in Britain may get you haled up on criminal charges for preserving your own life in your own home...  I like a place that doesn’t prevent me stopping rapists and strongarm robbers right at the source.
