They are the least aggressive most passive pussified people on the damn planet. Of course these are broad generalities with many exceptions but hopefully you can see the point that we ARE very different. FAR more aggressive and conflict oriented here in America. Let me give you an example. I knew a girl who was studying to be a pharmacist so I was helping her learn technical English related to the field (she was already fluent in conversational English). She told me about an instance where two men came into the pharmacy and robbed it. And here is the kicker... with a regular kitchen knife and a meat... wait for it... meat TENDERIZER. Yes, a small metal mallet. I laughed thinking it was a joke, but she was serious. So I asked her, if it was just her and some other girls (in Spain it is perfectly acceptable to ask a sexist question like that). She told me know, there were plenty of men both behind the counter working and male customers shopping. My point being... in America.. those two would have been LAUGHED out of the building.. in Europe they walked out with an armful of drugs.
You say "there is absolutely no evidence" that gun control could prevent mass shooting.

I take it you've abandoned that argument entirely, provided that I just gave you an entire post of evidence and you countered with an anecdote. Powerful stuff there, BEP. Powerful.

I don't know where to take this conversation from here. You're not exactly returning serve.
