Would you say that Japanese culture is similar to the American culture? What are some similarities and differences?
Try starting with things like honor, values, morals, etc. Are these things relative or absolute?
It's fairly difficult to have this discussion when assuming basic cultural differences is the norm..
Fides Quaerens Intellectum
You know what's funny about this statement? The Aurora shooting was multiple people involved and a serious staged job.
Oath Before Orders
Well, for what it's worth, they do have maybe the most famous mafia/gang in the world.

Hey Scoot, it's easy. We'll just spend billions on enforcement just like our "war on drugs". Look how well that's worked out. Our country is completely free of illegal drugs and people's lives are no longer ruined by the drug use........
The real James Holmes is not being held. It's a fake. And there were more shooters. Google the Aurora shooting conspiracy.
There is quoted police radio communication while its taking place.
Also, compare the photos of James Holmes.
Like anyone else, I love a good conspiracy theory. Here
Newly released court documents in the Aurora, CO theater “Batman massacre” case reveals startling inside accusations about who may actually be behind the shooti
Hmmm...can't tell if serious.
Sidenote: why can't these conspiracy lunatics go 5 seconds without saying the word 'sheeple'?
That has nothing to do with my point. My point was that he called out Hot Sauce for being "flat wrong." He was not flat wrong, he was entirely correct on the statistics about Japan.
Are. You. F'ing. Serious?
Just stop before you wind up in an institution.
Hey. I didn't write it.
You know the biggest difference between their situations and yours, is that America will never become a country where political dissidents, in this case it seems your playing the victim card of "conservative" values as dissidents, that the big bad government is going to come and kill you. How about making a good case for why automatic weapons and assault rifles are there, besides the I'm afraid that the big bad government is going to kill me if I don't have them. A gun doesn't make you a citizen, maybe you need to read what it means to be a citizen. Also maybe you should read about WW2 and that Japan invaded Alaska, and failed miserably. Not only that, but Japan was stuck in the quagmire that is China, a war that not only started long before the US involvement, 1932, but was also the third of a string of wars of Japanese aggression. They unsuccessfully attempted to exterminate Chinese citizens, and as a result pulled themselves into a conflict that they could not finish if they attempted to invade the US, Learn your history before you spew inaccuracies like this.
Japan also lacked the fuel and resources to invade the US, look into why the Japanese invade the Dutch East Indies. They invaded for fuel that they could not produce from the Japanese mainland.
I'm not sorry. It's interesting.
I'm not saying I believe all the conspiracies out there, but some have legitimacy to them. The Aurora one is well known.
And I find it extremely foolish to blindly believe the governments talking heads. Our current government of liberals are just a mafia. Control, power and sacrifice. Sacrifice of others, so to gain even more control.
This crap isn't a coincidence.
Another thing to note about those who are afraid of gun control and Japan. Every year Japanese schools run drills where a police officer dresses as a assailant with a gun/knife and attacks a school building. The students and teachers are trained to react in these situations, something that can be introduced as well if people are so adamant in keeping assault weapons that don't get used for other than shooting bottles.
Actually, I'm not.
I'm not a gullible idiot either.
Like most people.
You are obviously a gun hating, Obama supporting liberal right?
The Irish have been fighting their oppressors since forever using guns and explosives and the gun laws in Ireland are as stringent as they get. Stop acting like a bunch of poors thinking IF the federal government were ever to round up a bunch of people and execute them we couldn't find the means to fight back. I can't believe some of you think that would ever happen and it's a legitimate reason to own s machine gun, but here we are. Erin Go Bragh
So stuff your fucking crown we Irish won't lie down
and give away our guns to foreign lands
No semtex not our guns will you ever get from us
'Cause the IRA will always be around
Hard to hate inanimate objects, I hate people.
Also one last note to the OP, as an first generation Chinese American, I find it incredibly offensive, that this quote, "China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated." was used. Not only do you have no idea the political and social situation that occurred in China, nor the fact that it had nothing to do with weapons, after all China had just finished it's Civil War in 1950. You know, in a civil war, people kill each other.
