“God and guns were part of the foundation of this country,” Mr. Pagano, 49, said Wednesday in the small brick Assembly of God church, where a large wooden cross hung over the altar and two American flags jutted from side walls. “I don’t see any contradiction in this. Not every Christian denomination is pacifist.”This was a dangerous place to live when the country was being "founded." We had lots of "savages" and wild animals to bring to the brink of extinction (in the name of god). What's everyone afraid of now? Obama? Sheesh.
Interestingly, if you're on the terrorist watch list and can't board a plane, you can still buy weapons in the good old USA. I'm sorry but the US must look like a bunch of nuts to people in civilized countries.
According to a new report by the Government Accountability Office, folks on the list bought guns 865 times -- in 963 attempts -- over a five-year period. And not just guns -- at least one person purchased more than 50 pounds of explosives.
