The USA love affair with Guns
What is it with the USA citizens and guns? I heard with horror this morning that children of the age of eight are given firearms on their eighth birthday!
Not only that but the guns are pink for little girls! No wonder the USA has a problem.
Over the weekend 3000 USA citizens were cleared to buy guns. It is scary to think that nearly every citizen you see on the USA streets or in the supermarket has a deadly weapon JIC (just in case). WHY?
The pink rifle above is 100% legal and is on sale in the USA. Can you believe it?
On the BBC's World Have Your Say this morning a USA woman proudly told how she gave not only this but a selection of guns to her young eight year old daughter as if it were a bag of jelly babies. The mother could see nothing wrong with this. The gun lobby can see nothing wrong with this. The gun lobby thinks owning a gun makes USA safer. It certainly makes the gun manufactures richer
Words defeat me. No wonder the USA has a problem.
