Another Reason to Love America

This article was written as a slam to America, but to me it gives me another reason to love this nation. The US is the most armed country in the world.
GENEVA (Reuters) - The United States has 90 guns for every 100 citizens, making it the most heavily armed society in the world, a report released on Tuesday said.

U.S. citizens own 270 million of the world's 875 million known firearms, according to the Small Arms Survey 2007 by the Geneva-based Graduate Institute of International Studies.

About 4.5 million of the 8 million new guns manufactured worldwide each year are purchased in the United States, it said.

Yes, we love our guns, and because of our guns, the Gov't should fear trying to abolish our God Given Rights. Unlike Great Britain that confiscated the guns from it's people and now is on the road of being either and Islamic Nation or a Nanny Nation, they can't decide which to be.

The 2nd Amendment was written to allow the people to privately own guns, to keep the Gov't in check. And Freedom should keep ringing, as long as the people are armed.
