I am telling you that you are wrong and misled.. It depends on where you live. I live in Kansas USA and you can own and buy as many guns as you want. As long as you are not a felon. Where I live almost every household has guns. Crime rate very low here.I lived in Germany for over 2 years. The crime rate is not any better there. If a criminal want's to break in your home he can do it in 5 seconds. Police take from 15 to 30 minutes. My handgun is next to me always. 357 magnum hollow point bullets. By the way, when I was in Germany the police force bowed to us American MPs.
I don't know when you were in Germany, but when I was there in the 50's German police rode with our MP's. I was good friends with many MP's who I played with on the batallion baseball team so I do know a thing or two about the German police. They were partners with our MP's and didn't bow down to our men. The crime rate in Germany is much better than here. Look it up.
You make several good points and the US is way out of control. Right now in cities like Chicago 92 percent of the murders are black on black murders. So it isn't seen as a crime but as a big mess taking care of itself. There's plenty of beautiful places to visit in the US with no crime at all. Or lower crime rates than most other places around the world. Don't pass up a chance to visit one of the most beautiful places on the planet. If you're a German try and visit Utah.
It's an amazing State with great people. There's places out west where you can drive faster than in your country. I hope you'll reconsider. I have a lot of German National friends who are living here now and love it. They would never go back to Germany but to visit family.
