I know!! I had a dear friend whose wife was from England. When she went back to visit family she was brutally attacked beaten and raped just walking down the street. Was hospitalized for several weeks. One of the things he said to me was "and they call US the violent society..."
You have to find humor in it because if you don't, it really is a frightening thing. I was in France and I was shocked to find out that most European young adults think that we as a nation have a violent culture. It seemed that all their media did was focus on the negative aspects of the U.S. Their perception of us is their reality.
Hahaha! I just got an email from my friend showing Joe Byden telling his wife to get a shotgun for home protection. Then it showed numerous ladies firing said shotgun and falling on their fannies!! Then a gal firing a AR-15 (no prob there)!! No matter folks politics/gun rights it was SO funny!
