Yay! We win

We are number 1!
Americans are the most armed people in the world, baby.
The United States has 90 guns for every 100 citizens! We own 270 million of the world's 875 million known firearms!

Reuters: On a per-capita basis, Yemen had the second most heavily armed citizenry behind the United States, with 61 guns per 100 people, followed by Finland with 56, Switzerland with 46, Iraq with 39 and Serbia with 38.
The rest of the world are such pussies.

Since I'm talking about how cool we are--- Americans expect to get the most medals in next year's olympics. This is big news and it would be a national disgrace if our expectations were any lower. However when it comes to our high (and getting higher) infant mortality rate- a baby's chance of survival through it's first year of life, you hardly hear a peep of national outcry. I guess the important thing is that the mother's at least tried to have their babies and let "god" kill them.
