Tacos and Cheese

Sorry Rodger, I know the point you're trying to make, but if you flipped the legality of gun ownership in either of those countries, it wouldn't make a lot of difference. Oh, it might LOWER the amount of deaths in Honduras for a short amount of time, (i.e. an armed society is a polite society). But in due course, those with guns would simply barter or sell them for a new appliance of food for the kids, and pretty soon the drug gangs would have all the guns again.

It's apples and oranges otherwise. Switzerland is a first world nation with first world culture. Honduras is a turd, pardon, THIRD world nation with all the ills that befall them.

And, BTW, with the dissolution of the Soviet Union (a collection of second world nations) why do we still have third world nations? Don't they all get to move up a notch?

First world : Europe.
Second world : America.
Third world : Colonies.
Fourth world : the Terran rest ;-)
Fiftrh world : Mars?

"The term Third World arose during the Cold War to define countries that remained non-aligned with either NATO, or the Communist Bloc. The United States, Western European nations and their allies represented the First World, while the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, and their allies represented the Second World. This terminology provided a way of broadly categorizing the nations of the Earth into three groups based on social, political, cultural and economic divisions." Wikipedia

My apologies. It seems BOTH countries meet the definition of 'Third World Nation'. If that's the case, there's definitely a sliding scale for meeting that definition, and Honduras inhabits the 'TURD' end of that scale. So I wasn't COMPLETELY wrong.

It's about the "Bell Curve". Japs are unarmed and have nearly zero crime. Some humans are more human than others by their makeup and societal conventions, and always will be. Ask anyone from JoBerg. -Anymouse
