    I guess we already know it won't work because it has been tried before?

    what is it you want to try? Removing guns? Stricter laws? Try Chicago. Rather than compare the US to any other countries, how about we clean up America one city at a time. Lets start with Chicago.
    Joemama should volunteer his services to take the guns away from criminals first. When that works then he can go for law abiding citizens next.

    Try anything other than saying it won't work so no point trying.

    If there was a proposal that would suddenly make the millions of hand guns inoperable... then it would work.

    Re: How Japan Has Almost Eradicated Gun Crime

    I think countries where the overwhelming majority of citizens are all the same (ie. Chinese, Japanese, Korean) have a much better track record of violence is solely due to their culture and their resistance to pressure or acceptance of an outsiders beliefs. Those countries have the ability (if they chose) to maintain the same type of culture through generation after generation.

    The difference in America is that we are a melting pot where everyone has the freedom to pretty much do whatever they want. It’s what makes our country so great, but obviously there are some really negative aspects as well such as violence and hedonistic behavior.

    I don’t think anyone in this thread was being “racist”.

    What is American culture to you?

    Its something I can't seem to figure out.

    What's the traditional dress?

    Traditional cuisine?

    Traditional dance?

    Traditional music?

    Traditional values ECT.

    I understand his point, Americans can't get along because of the cultural differences.

    People are not striving for a common goal.

    Its why I asked what is American culture?

    There is none of that you mentioned. Like I said we are a melting pot of other cultures. What’s not to understand?

    Is an armed to the teeth melting pot of cultures a good idea?

    Or is everyone armed because its a melting pot of cultures and there's no trust?
