Welcome to America

They were playing that hippity-hop music at the gym today, and one set of lyrics struck me. “That’s the sound of a shotgun; in my neighborhood everybody’s got one.” The singer seemed unreasonably impressed with that. Just like in most places I’ve lived, about everybody’s got one here too, to say nothing of the rifles and pistols. On balance that’s quite a good thing.

  1. Our neighborhoods have them and properly use and care for them, as well as prefer that they be legally obtained.

    That may be part of the big difference…. (Sadly, the wild-west origins of why our neighborhoods have them is far too similar for my peace of mind!)
