“I recently returned from a one-month visit to the United States,” gun control advocate MikeB302000 reveals on his blog. The expatriated American (living in Rome, Italy) hasn’t been in The Land of the Free for some time. MikeB was taken by two observations. First, Americans are porky. “The second most impressive thing I noticed was the almost total absence of guns. Every day I scanned the people for who might be carrying concealed. There were very few, which could be easily determined due to the summertime dress code. I realize some of those folks might have had a gun in the glove compartment of the car and certainly some had guns at home, but the overall impression was that gun ownership is not the commonplace way of life we often hear from the gun-rights crowd.” How scientific is that?
