actually, more people here do try to do something about the gun laws...unfortunately, there are too many powerful people with $$ to stop much of the changes from happening and then they're the nutjobs who don't really care what the law is anyway.

Of course, making an issue of this while considering fictional characters such as Cap and Bucky (both of whom are from the 40s and a time, frankly, when individual gun violence was not prevalent like today), is, well, stupid.

Of course, there are other countries that put children in danger in other ways...

By the way, I live a couple of towns away from Newtown, CT . . . one of the comic book shops I go to sometimes is in the Sandy Hook section of Newtown, CT.

Hey, Hoy! (I always wanted to write that). Thanks for the Fantasy Masterpiece save! I don't know why but none of the enhancements tools are working for me right now - not even bold or underlining.

Lucy, if children didn't have access to guns, how would they be able to protect themselves from the other children with guns?

Sorry but making a joke about this is pretty poor taste.
And, less you forget, Damian Wayne was created by a Brit.

they live in seawater..you know what that does to the eyes, all that rubbing of the eyes too?  No amount of Visine helps so if they need some loud color (sorry...colour) combinations, what the heck.

We don't have those in the UK. We have... um... peat bogs? Whatever those are.

Our national fruit is the banana (imported).

We don't appear to have a national fruit, but states have official state things like fruits, fossils, and so much more.

But Connecticut's State Animal is the sperm whale.

And we have a state tartan, too. http://ct.gov/ctportal/cwp/view.asp?a=885&q=246526

Actually, they were chosen state animal not so much because they hang out in Connecticut but because of their importance to the state's history.
The Sperm Whale (Physeter macrocephalus) was designated the state animal of Connecticut in 1975. This animal played a significant role in the history of Connecticut (in the 1800's Connecticut ranked second only to Massachusetts in the whaling industry). . . .
http://www.statesymbolsusa.org/Connecticut/animal_sperm_whale.html

And I'm not sure how many would want to live right off the coastline of the state . . . we're not directly on the Atlantic Ocean.
