From the mailbag: Dear Ted, if we wanted to learn more about guns in America, what groups should we contact.  Thanks.  Heinie from Germany

Thanks for your email, Heinie. We have not one, but TWO great gun organizations here in the United States. These organizations work tirelessly in order to ensure that every American citizen can be fully armed with whatever weapon they want. They have blocked hundreds of laws designed to keep guns out of the hands of all people and have advocated the ability for people to conceal carry weapons and open carry weapons as well. They work to make sure that all Americans are safe.

And their actions ensure that you would be safe too if you visit the United States on Holiday!

The United States--Still Safer than Swaziland!

Since the tragedy in Orlando this last weekend, many people across the world have contacted me asking "Hey, Ted, is the USA still a safe place to visit for holiday?"

My answer: You bet! The United States is safer than Swaziland. It's also safer than Colombia. South Africa. And many more!

Sure, you might not want to go to a gay nightclub. Or an elementary school. Or an African American church. Or a theater, perhaps.

But if you do, that's okay too!  Many places have concealed carry laws--thanks to the Republican Party and the National Rifle Association. That means that a Good Guy with a Guy might be nearby to protect you.

But, just to be extra safe, you may want to purchase a kevlar vest before you make your holiday in the good 'ol U.S. of A!  Bullet Blocker--an American Company--has a great assortment of vests, backpacks and other safety products that will take the worry out of your USA travel plans. They even have kid sizes! You can even buy a bulletproof case for your iPad! Now that's being prepared.
