    Discussion on the most notorious section of the U.S constitution

    You said before that you are an American. In most countries, it's nearly impossible to own a gun legally. Yes, it makes a difference whether you come from a country with very tight gun laws or a country where the enactment of them is hindered by a constitution. How about taking right away from...

    Discussion on the most notorious section of the U.S constitution

    Hoping for more posts from people in countries with tighter gun laws, this is a U.K-based site, and the U.K is one of those countries. Fact is that guns are the most powerful handheld weapons of all, so yes there is a reason to believe that at least the restriction of semi-automatic and thus...

    Discussion on the most notorious section of the U.S constitution

    Gunners can attack from a distance and one person with even a semi-automatic one can shoot multiple people in a short time. Most countries have tighter gun laws than the U.S, and yes, many really do better than the U.S, especially when to comes down to assassination of celebrities.

    Discussion on the most notorious section of the U.S constitution

    The information I do have is how rare gun homicide and gunshot injuries are in countries with tighter gun laws, like Canada and many European countries, Australia (my country) and New Zealand. Could sheriffs recommend guns for law-abiding people to protect them from gangs that also have guns...

    Discussion on the most notorious section of the U.S constitution

    Why do I ask? Come on, surely you know most other countries have tighter guns laws than are constitutional in the U.S, and in these countries, they are generally supported. So the U.S constitution has blocked such laws from being passed in the U.S. There even seem to be more celebrity...

    Discussion on the most notorious section of the U.S constitution

    A lot of Americans with guns think they need them to protect themselves against even their own government. Remember the start of this thread. I'm not sure this is a mindset in any other democratic country.

    Discussion on the most notorious section of the U.S constitution

    I'm not sure there is anything about any theist religion "which requires ownership of guns or to advocate the for the right to own them". Note that there are religions without gods, so being atheist doesn't mean irreligious. Yes, African-Americans with guns taking down others of their race.

    Discussion on the most notorious section of the U.S constitution

    What exactly has the role of Christianity to do with guns? There are other Christian countries, like Ireland, which appear to handle gun control just as most other countries do. But does anyone here know of any attempts over the years to repeal the 2nd amendment? Most countries freeze when even...

    Discussion on the most notorious section of the U.S constitution

    The biggest reason why we (the people of so many other Western countries) bash Americans is probably the presence of guns and how the U.S handles gun control. Most countries of the world seem to have enacted tighter since laws since the 2nd amendment was ratified, so have there been any attempts...

    Why are Amercians (as a country) suspicious of their government?

    I do have something specific in mind for another thread. Surely suspiciousness of government is more common in the U.S than most other democratic countries.

    Why are Amercians (as a country) suspicious of their government?

    But don't the people of these countries view their own governments (the ones they elect) as their friends, like the Italians viewing the Italian government as their friend and the Austrians viewing the Austrian government as their friend. Millions of Americans are suspicious of the U.S...

    Why are Amercians (as a country) suspicious of their government?

    In most democratic countries, governments are seen as friends, at least by people who have the vote. This makes sense if you think about it, why shouldn't the government be seen that way by the people who elect it? However, there is one democracy, the United States Of America where there is...

    Translating native-tongue videos by native speakers of other languages

    So there are a large number of native-tongue videos by native speakers of other languages, including many by native speakers of smaller languages with fewer (native) speakers. Those people, especially if they make all their videos in their respective native languages, could reach a lot more...

    The rise of monotheism

    Yet there was a time when polytheism/animism was practically universal, and this was at a time of enormous cultural diversity compared to what we have today, and when the peoples of different corners of the world were quite separated.

    Liberalism test

    Has this something to do with whether democracy with elections is the best system for ruling a country or whether manufacturers should produced whatever goods enough people want to buy? Okay, I'll elaborate on liberal economics: Let's consider the videotape format war. The first home video...

    The rise of monotheism

    There was a time when practically everyone in the world was a polytheist (if animist faiths count). The rise of monotheism began in Egypt around 1350 B.C. What explains the rise of monotheism?

    The evolution of intelligent life

    Entrances to termite mounds don't have any slogans, this includes things like "Termites of Africa Unite". Each Kangaroo may care about the interests of their own mob, but not about the interests of other mobs of complete strangers. No wolf alpha male or alpha female would bid to become the king...
