Oh, You Don’t Want To Go There!

Did you know that Foreign countries are now issuing warnings to their citizens about traveling to the United States!

The Venezuelan government issued a statement urging Venezuelans to stay away from U.S. cities that have the most violence, citing a 2019 Forbes article that lists the most dangerous cities in the U.S. Those cities were Cleveland; Detroit; Baltimore; St. Louis; Oakland, California; Memphis, Tennessee; Birmingham, Alabama; Atlanta; Stockton, California; and Buffalo, New York.

The Uruguayan government also issued a similar statement urging its citizens to take precautions when visiting the United States because of its “increasing indiscriminate violence” and hate crimes fueled by “racism and discrimination that had cost the lives of more than 250 people in just the first seven months of 2019.”

And in Detroit, Michigan, The Japanese Consul published an alert advising that Japanese citizens “should be aware of potential for gunfire” everywhere in the U.S…. which they went on to describe as a “gun society,”

And in the very recent past other countries including, France, New Zealand and Germany have issued travel warnings because of gun violence in the U.S.

A database by The Associated Press, USA TODAY and Northeastern University shows there has been an increase in the number of mass killings in both 2018 and 2019. The database tracks every mass killing in the country dating back to 2006 and there have been more than 250 mass shootings in which four or more people were killed or wounded since that time.

So I guess that if you already live here in America and call the USA your home and someday (just like those foreigners) find yourself  worrying about going out and about your daily business…don’t worry…Just do what millions of Americans are already doing…

Bring your gun!

    Canadians have a lot of guns, but they are for hunting. The only reason to have a handgun is to kill people. The US has a lot of handguns. That, and the human tendency toward violence, make it a more dangerous place than most others.
