Make sure you tell her Washington STATE and not Washington DC.

Tell her that it's just like bloody ol' England turned inside out with all the water on the inside instead of around the outside.

Tell her the weather is the same and there are not sheep herds in every field.

Tell her that there are no fights after 'football' games, only riots after the champions are crowned.

Tell her we drive on the 'right' side of the street and have no round-a-bouts, only cloverleafs.

Uh.....maybe you should just save your money :P

People with guns isn't a bad thing Corny ;p
Bad people with guns is.
Guns don't kill people, people kill people.

Anyways, I'm sure gun related crimes are actually pretty low in Washington state.

According to stats I got from a washington state government site in 2004 there were 3.5 violent crimes per 1,000
And 2005 preliminary stats show a .6% increase to 3.47

Well that's a lot for Britain.
They have like almost nil gun related violence.
So then that would be to much then and to many guns.
No guns=no gun deaths.
Has nothing to do with people, if they don't have a gun they can't shoot anyone!
I'm not saying you still can't kill someone, it's just a bit harderish and not gun related.
Simple math on that one, a no brain'er.

I like guns. I like shooting guns. I like dissasembling, cleaning, and polishing guns. I don't shoot people with guns unless you consider green army men people. Owning firearms is not a bad thing, nor is it dangerous, when handled properly.

Do you play any Grand Theft Auto games that she's aware of? If not...

Use better tell mam to stop watching so many American westerns, OK?

According to nationmaster.com there were 62 murders in the UK from firearms in 2000, I'm sure newer stats could be found.

6 Million people in Washington state in 2004, 191 murders in 2004.
Anyways...

Who would want to murder you?

I would rather be shot dead than stabbed, clubbed, strangled, thrown off a building, or any of the other ways you got to do it in the UK. ;p

So what does she think the streets are filled with marauding gangs of armed thungs?

I would say your chances of getting shot to death in America are about the same as your plane crashing into the Atlantic :?
