Javier Liendo said..."... but I challenge you to mention one single country where people enjoy the freedom and rights they do in America..."
Norway, Finland or for that matter any of the other three Scandinavian countries?
Even in the more gun friendly countries you have to keep in mind that you are still in Europe and part of the EU. That itself presents some advantages but some disadvantages as well. You're part of something else than your country alone.
Imagine a North American Union (Canada, USA and Mexico) how free does it feel now?
Socialism is spreading through Europe at a rate that is too much for my personal preferences. As nive as many European countries are you feel the socialism and politically correctness on the daily lives as well. Socialism is considered a good thing by most in Europe. If that's your thing, you'll be like fish in water there.
About guns, even gun friendly European countries, it is NOT USA. In Sweeden you're allowed to keep your military issued rifle at home with ammo... but the ammo is strictly controlled. Its specifically issued and done that way for a military strategic advantage, it is NOT done for person freedoms and rights. BIG difference guys.
The key point is right to carry. Challenge thrown again: How many of these fabulous countries some of you seem to favor allow the citizens to carry for self defense as well as the security of the state, and says so clearly in its constitution and bill of right?
Come on guys, never thought I'd have to convince Americans that USA is better than Europe. Are they putting drugs in the water over there or something?
Almost all countries have freedom of speech, yet no country in the world except USA gives its citizens such power to be self reliant about their own personal security and control over the State in the gravest extreme like USA does.
