Is it too insensitive to ask why as a nation of generally God-fearing, peace-loving, decent individuals, the USA can conceive the right to be able to bear arms so damn important?

As a nation, we've an unhealthy relationship with alcohol. But even we're not stupid enough to make it a constitutional right for any wack-job to get tanked up and sit in behind the wheel of a speeding motor vehicle.

Wait a minute, strike that last thought.

Here's a quick bit of free election advice. The first US Presidential Candidate to pledge to do something about gun control gets my sister's vote. The first Irish politician who pledges to do something about alcohol advertising, drink driving, or whatever, gets my vote.

I know you're joking because you said so a few days later. One thought: you are very generous in your opening statement about Americans. However, I don't see individuals living in a vacuum protected from their society.
I guess Martin Ferris has your vote then...

mmm, Martin took me up all wrong. (I get that a lot with my posts, I really must work on my blog-annunciation). I hadn't expected he'd demonstrate his almost FF-like panchant for DUI.

He'd lost me at the gun-running if I'm completely honest.
