During this semester of school I have had a few classes with a guy from Malta (an island in the Mediterranean sea) and have become pretty good friends with him. Surprising to me, he was a hunter like I am and I got to take him deer hunting during the KY muzzle loader season. We got talking about guns, and he was amazed to know that you could just go to a store and buy a gun in America. He has to take a class and fill out papers and wait for any gun he buys in Malta. He even had to take a class before his grandpa could hand down an old Beretta side by side shot gun. Just to show him how great it was to be able to own a gun in America, I took him to his first gun store and it was priceless to watch his amazement as we walked from shelf to shelf. He was especially amazed at the assault rifle section :biglaugh:. This just made me realize that even though we may be nervous about gun control in this country, we still have it pretty good, and it made me very thankful to live in America. It was also fun to introduce another person to American gun culture.
