If that is what it makes to get respect, thats what they will use.

I am reminded of  chinese saying

"The worst sort of leader, the people fear"
"A better leader, the people love"
"The best leader, the people say 'we did it ourselves'"

We KNOW the USA citizen's self esteem is very low. Its designed that way
by marketing. That's why they grab onto God, or a gun, to make
themselves feel proud of themselves.

When a mans self-esteem is shot to bits, you can sell him penis pills,
cars that help him score chicks, A God that loves him, a president with
porridge for brains......anything. You play on it to keep the flow of
trash products flowing to him.

Ah. Incapable of original thought. 'I was only obeying orders, guv.'

 I love it when someone quotes 'God's laws'. Seems they claim a direct
link to him - given the bible contradicts just about every 'law' somewhere.

Not in the UK they don't.

<going off at a tangent>

Various gun lobbies over the years have held Switzerland up as an
example of how guns can be kept safely at home, Swiss men being obliged
to undertake military service and keep an automatic rifle at home while
of age, with ammunition.

What they don't admit is that these guns are used to kill several dozen
people a year, most of them murderously (i.e. not in self-defence).
<http://www.huppi.com/kangaroo/L-switzerland.htm>  and others.

Outsiders may find this hard to understand but most British people do
not want to own guns and they certainly don't want their neighbours to
own them. A large majority don't want the police armed, either, no
matter what you may read in the Daily Mail.
