Comments: Maybe it is a gun culture

The equalizing power of firearms is awesome...

Correction: It really WAS a gun culture... in 1944. This was the era when many a young boy carried his .22 rifle to school with him, left it in his locker all day, and hunted rabbits on his way home. These were the men who, when faced with the international threat of a genocidal madman in central Europe, and ordered by the president to go across the ocean and defeat a mighty army, kept marching forward until the enemy surrendered. They knew how to handle a firearm, and what it was for (and not for).

Today, young boys and girls are expelled from school for a week if they bring a butter knife to school. Today, it is a butter-knife culture.

Any wonder why Mahmood isn't afraid?
