The washington post or times, not sure which, intimated that one of the reasons for our police being too aggressive is that there are something like 130 guns per 100 citizens. They compare us with finland & iceland and their gentler stazi and fewer guns.

Hmm.....what else is missing, or at least rare in scandinavia ?

Too cold to riot there. Seems all riots I recall in this country is during hot weather.

I think being more aggressive in a armed society is a myth, why would anyone want to pee off someone who might be carrying a gun.
The police in the UK are not generally faced with firearms but are at times very aggressive. Aggression by police or civilians has more complex reasons than whether people own guns or not. The Washington Post is just like all the other newspapers, full of BS.
From his weapons on the open road no man should step one pace away, you don't know for certain when you're out on the road when you might have need of your spear.

Demographics, my good man, demographics......
I wish for you the courage to be unpopular. Popularity is history's pocket change. Courage to tell the truth is history's true currency.
