Because despite the fact of being among the best armed civilian population in the world we are also fairly civilized and pretty much don't like that sort of thing. No we aren't the best armed that is probably the Swiss-they don't have that problem either. Funny isn't it. I don't particularly hate Bush and all other politicians; I just have limited use for all of them and just want them to not treat me like I am an idiot who is going to believe what they say, quit trying to protect me like I am four years old, quit stirring up hate between groups to get people scared and vote for them, and just shut up and leave me alone. That goes for all of them regardless of party, liberal, conservative, neocon, neolib, fundamentalist and the rest of the politicians.
