Willingly, I'm guessing.
The militia state part? Actually I was addressing the points you made in that response and YOU didn't mention it. Again, try to ****ing keep up. I'm happy to point out that it is a difference. I can also point to countless things that make America unique when compared to every one of your "Western" countries.

We differ from them significantly in gun control. The Swiss may be in our ballpark, but the Swiss are a statistical and cultural aberration that render comparisons to them meaningless.
Dude, Santa didn't bring you a brain for Xmas obviously. I have NEVER said we are the same as the Swiss. You are trying to get people here to swallow the idea that teh Swiss are less like their Europeans neighbors than WE are. That is so ****ing ridiculous it's sad.

Nice dodge you ****ing weasel. You have stated that gun violence is an epidemic because millions of people like yourself are sad over Sandy Hook. My comparisons to Princess DI, the Shuttle Challenger, etc are all apt. It appears you think an epidemic is defined by media coverage and histrionics not by data. I gave a solid metric for when I would call gun violence an epidemic... please offer me YOUR definition. You have dodged and weaseled on it so far and have yet to offer anything remotely resembling an answer.

The irony is thicker than a Vietnamese jungle.
No, I don't back any such thing... because it doesn't ****ing happen and you are a ****ing tin foil hat wearing nutjob for thinking it does. I have shows fact after fact( not op-eds like you) proving this to be false but again, you have an agenda to push and you'll be damned if the pesky truth will get in the way.
