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!"
