    Living with a gun enthusiast from the American heartland

    By Timo E. Peltonen

    A tall, stout man about 20 years of age appears in the doorway of the study of the student dorm. He is wearing a cowboy hat, a long coat of oilcloth familiar from a cigarette advertisement, and a pair of cowboy boots. The outfit is not unusual in winter Montana - not even at the University of Montana.
    In his arms the man carried a 30-inch television. He did not seem very self-confident when he walked in, but he tried to put on an air of nonchalance. I cannot recall if he introduced himself right away, but it is hard to forget that Mark Wicks eventually proved to be a genuine American gun nut.
    What is a man like that made of? And why should we be interested in a person like Mark Wicks?

    Mark is an American who takes a great interest in guns - the tools of violence. The attitudes that individual Americans have toward violence are what forms the collective US attitude toward violence. This relationship has a downright astoundingly broad impact on the world in general.
    First of all, the foreign policy of the world's only superpower springs forth from that relationship with violence, and that policy reverberates in every corner of the earth.
    History has shown that Americans are ready to support the violent efforts of those whose actions they have considered justified from the point of view of the "free world".
    They have armed Nicaragua's Contra guerrillas in the fight against the Sandinistas, the Afghan Taleban against the Soviets, and the tyranny of Saddam Hussein against Iran's Islamist regime...

    These kinds of fools are a plague on freedom IMO.

        Quoted from the article:
        If you combine a competitive society, lack of security, suspicion toward officialdom, the free availability of guns, state-sanctioned violence, and hero models fed to us by the media, and add to that the influence of people who are near the person, you get a Mark Wicks.
        I hope that Mark is doing well.

        Me too. All those things are what combine to make America great. If the wimp who wrote that doesn't like it, he's free to get the hell out.

        I don't think It'll happen in the US because we don't trust our government. We are a country of skeptics, raised by skeptics, founded by skeptics. - Amaroq
