    Well if she's worried about her lawn, she's probably not going to be planting land mines.

    Aw, so the only necessity is that everyone in the United States is fully rational and pragmatic.

    Of course, then there would be no need for self defense weapons, would there?

    Nope, for the government is rarely fully rational nor pragmatic.

    I take it that he was clearly trying to compare the United States to its peers, and phrased the idea poorly.

    I practice ethical hunting. General rule, "you kill it, you eat it". I hear humans taste like pork but their meat is fatty like Bear.

    If I'm not in the mood I can use my entrenching tool (spoon) and bury the body hoping the game warden doesn't catch me.

    Come here, we'll mug you but you'll less likely to be killed than at home.

    Quite the tourist advert I'd say.

    Btw where is this info on our violent crime rate?
