    Don't take that as an insult to your country, I envy the beautiful views that so many of you Canadians post and make us southerners jealous.
    No offence taken. Believe me pal I've looked into it, moving from Canada to the US is not easy. Some argue that there is no need to carry a firearm since Canada is considered such a safe country. I disagree with that logic, but I'm the minority here.

    Others would argue that this mentality is equal to complacency, and will doom you into becoming a victim. One has to wonder WHY an area has been made so safe. If it's simply due to the lack of weapons, then all one needs is to bring weapons in and they control everything. You know why America has never seen and likely won't ever see a ground invasion? Because there is estimated to be between 270,000,000 to 310,000,000 guns held by civilians in this country (that's not counting guns held by the military, etc). The current census says there are 318,892,103 United States citizens, which includes who knows how many infants and young children who can't handle guns. That means that for every person capable of handling a gun, there is one. That gives us quite an army

    Is that the reason that the USA hasn't seen a ground invasion? Among the many political reasons why that hasn't happened, I would think that it could be partially to do with the fact that the USA is large geographically speaking, has a population that is almost 10 times the population of Canada and close to triple that of Mexico and that it holds the number 1 ranking in the world for military spending.

    With those credentials one doesn't really need to have 300 million guns in the hands of its citizens to stave off the threat of a surprise infantry attack from its closest neighbors or some far away country. With that many guns in the hands of citizens, I would be more inclined to think that one might be more paranoid about what ones countryman (sane or otherwise) might do with his or her gun rather than those pesky foreigners.

    I quote Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto (whether he actually said it or not)
    "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass."
    I love this quote.

    I'd have to agree with DRKBC regarding invasion of the US. But I again agree with you David regarding self defence. There's a reason anytime a person goes off the handle here all the people just stand and watch. Hell, many people argue that getting involved would just make things worse. I don't get it, people need to look out for one another. Back on topic, here's my EDC for today.
