Since American Pravda seems to be alive and well and spewing toxic misinformation around the globe — let me address the interest in “violence in America,” thanks to the current news cycle.
And then let me add my two cents:
I live in the American South. I am surrounded by people with guns. Everyone carries, even the women.
I have never seen anyone’s gun except our own. I have never seen one “brandished.” I have never seen one “drawn in anger.” Nor used as a threat. People who carry do so with a serious attitude.
I have also never known anyone killed with a gun, except a woman 40 years ago whose crazy husband killed her, and a friend of my husband’s who killed himself.
The violence you are shown on American Pravda happens in the broken northern cities, where police are banned, and where the streets are filled with thugs because all the sensible people have moved away.
