Your world is a nightmare for me. No handguns and restrictions on owning guns in general is unacceptable for some of US. If heaven ain't a lot like Dixie I don't want to go.
If we'd of know this we'd of picked our own cotton.

Fair call, the way of life you know. We have plenty of guns, but pretty much only people on the land and city folk don't which suits me to a tee. I have four and could get more but have no need. But i do have to say, i like it our way, it is very reassuring to send you kids to school know there is no chance they are going to get shot up!

See, the nutters have to travel to countries with less restrictive gun laws to work their evil.
