How safe is America?
Despite horrific shooting crimes that breaks out
in USA , it must be said, that America is not a violent
country. In most small towns and bigger ones too,
it is possible to walk down your street in peace.
Therefore it must be made clear, before we hunker
down in the potato cellar, that the atrocity we have
seen is an aberration and not a norm.
It is only a year ago when a crazed Norwegian went
around killing 66 children at a summer camp.
If you want a gun it is available to get wherever you live.
Yes, gun control is vital, not only for America, which
notwithstanding the horror we feel, still a safe country.
