I knew someone would hunt me down for that one. I should rephrase.

There is a rational structure, and it consists of the prevalent emotional
attitude to firearms throughout your society.

So there. I think that's true - all the arguments I've been presented with
were a matter of personal outlook on what an individual's "rights" are
supposed to be (emotional argument), and what the social situation in the
USA is (rational argument, based on emotions people have for each other,
rougly speeking).

You could now hunt me down on the specifics of the final part of my
paragraph above. If you do, consider that I just retract the whole
statement. :-) Rhetorics are meaningless, and I've already stated what I
perceive the facts to be.
