Did You Know?America - Did you know? Observation of foreign travelers to America: 'Guns... In Texas. At one end of the store the biggest collections of rifles, guns, machetes and army gadget I’ve ever seen... When I then told this to my Texan friends I realised all of them... had at least one gun, if not several. When they told me it was for self-defense and I told them we don’t have that many guns in Europe they asked me what would I do to defend myself and... I replied 'well, I run!'
