    Gun Culture. Who needs it?

    Woman shoots at McDonald’s over bacon

    A woman accused of firing a gun early Monday morning at a McDonald’s restaurant – allegedly because she didn’t get bacon on her sandwich — now faces three criminal charges.
    While I don't agree with the 1996 fire arms legislation and accompanying gun buyback scheme, I hope we never get to the stage the USA finds itself in.

    The right wingers among the US population rely on the "inalienable rights" mentioned in their constitution and the second amendment more than their god's sanction on the matter, but yes, their mentality stinks.

    We live in a completely different society for historical reasons. We never had to conduct a war to get rid of our colonial overlord, nor did we feel the necessity of a civil war to sort out economic and social differences. We are not known for shooting our heads of state dead, (the Americans killed 4 of theirs with guns, injured at least one other, and who knows how many other political leaders were killed or injured), and our murder rate is one quarter of that in the US.

    I'm sure that the vast majority of the 330 million US citizens are ordinary, law abiding citizens who are too preoccupied with their jobs and family to plan and carry out violent actions against people they don't like, but that leaves enough others for me to never want to set foot in that country. It's just too scary. Statistically speaking, it is way less likely to get killed in waters that are accessible to sharks.

    Also, If Aussies don't get bacon on their Maccas, they generally don't give a shit.

    Yabut, it's not about mere money. It's the principle that matters - democracy, Freedom and the American Way! Or to put it in other words: "If it moves, shoot it. If it doesn't, chop it down."


    Oh,wait. Wrong country.

    Holly crap --- Tuesday is alive.

    Oh come on, we all know you and your temper. You would have pulled a gun if you didn't bacon also.

    Pot kettle black comes to mind
