A few months ago at a demonstration against the president of Montreal, Maine and Atlantic Railway, a Canadian citizen made the following claim: “We don’t have guns, we are not Americans, we are civilized.” A few days before, in early July, a train of the company had run away and exploded in Lac-Megantic, Quebec, killing 47 people. The tragic derailment had nothing to do with guns but, like this angry demonstrator, many people in the world believe that the American taste for guns is uncivilized.
The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is an anomaly in today’s world. It states, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
