  3. Lady from Quebec

    Heard in hunting part of the province of Quebec: One hunter said that if Americans want to keep their big rifle, they will have to send the kid with a bullet proof uniform, bullet proof backpack.
    And it is astounding to us that, American get upset because of Benghazi 4 losses, but what fight to keep even more big guns when they just killed 20 kids of their own little kids on their own land and at school.
    It is very hard to get the rationale behind this concern about a few Americans killed abroad versus 10,000+ of their own every year who do not seem to MATTER in the debate.
