Why we can’t be like the others

There is always the question after a gun related tragedy on why can’t the United States have gun laws similar to fill in the blank. Generally, some nation in Europe, or all of Europe collectively. And of course now due to the Olympics, it is South Korea as the example.

The answer to this question is very simple. The United States isn’t any of these other locations. We do not share a common culture or heritage with any of these other nations.

We are far removed from our colonial roots. Our culture and heritage is unique to the United States. And the right to keep and bear arms is part of that culture and heritage. The United States is a free Republic unlike any other in the world before or sense.

That is why we cannot have gun laws that are like some other country’s. There solutions just do not work in the United States. Unless of course your goal is to transform America into some other kind of government. Otherwise the American solution will have to be uniquely American.
