Don't think, I'm not aware, that this is my personal opinion. Your opinion may vary, and you are certainly entitled to it, although I might despise you for it, but what does that matter XD.

IMO Stand-your-ground law and gun rights are some of the most important laws in American society. Imagine if you didn't have the right to defend yourself! *cough* much of Europe *cough*

I'm only giving a few reasons here, why guns are an awful weapon for normal people to posess:

* If you hadn't a gun, a police officer would not have existential fears whenever he stops a car, searches a house, arrests someone. Therefore, he would not need to use his gun in a way, where he is ready to kill you.

* Schoolshootings period.

And now stand-your-ground law:

* Trayvon Martin

* Markeis McGlockton

* Botham Jean

* Is your property worth more than the greatest present of God - Life?

Somebody's bitter about all the Polack jokes....

Maybe if your country were better armed, it wouldn't be conquered every fifty years or so.

I suppose you're being sarcastic, nevertheless, I would like to know your source. Furthermore, I wouldn't flex about Immigration, when the US has capped their refugee number at 30,000 per year1 and Austria with a population of just under 9,000,000 has capped theirs at 37,5002! This is the time you should be ashamed Lady "Liberty"!
