Japan needs to keep up the good work. People who spend money on Marijuana are not responsible people. I encounter people on a daily basis who won't pay their water bill but buy Marijuana.

My opinion is this man should be stabbed and struck in the head until dead. He deserves the same as what he did to his victim.

People live in Nagasaki and Hiroshima and those cities are not a problem to raise children. Radiation kills as we all know but nature will reclaim the land and the hard work will make it possible much quicker.

I can't imagine wanting to stab someone at random. That was not even in my mind at 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 etc.

I experienced no more or no less discrimination while in Japan as if I were in backyard USA. I encountered women who were scared of me. I encountered some who were curious and those that were good souls. I hope I didn't ruffle anyone while trying to fit into an environment so different than the one I live in. I understand where people before me my have given the individuals I encountered reason to question.

I'm not going to Japan and force them to speak English or change their customs. I made many mistakes when I was there and I am learning how to fit in.

Posted in: 3 million Americans carry a handgun daily: study See in context

There are strict laws and license for carrying a firearm in America. Without a license it is a felony offense. It's absurd to think people are just carrying around firearms and shooting people because they have an argument. Firearms are for protection of oneself or property and for protection of those who can't carry because of fear or criminal record. From 2005 to 2011 my car was broken into 6 times. I was chased by a lunatic wielding a crowbar. That is the reason I obtained a license to carry a gun. For those who have good jobs and live in good neighborhoods carrying a gun would seem extreme. I personally never dreamed it would be necessary to carry a gun, but at the age of 50 that all changed. Must be nice to be privileged and look down upon those who must fend for themselves.

Posted in: 3 million Americans carry a handgun daily: study See in context

If it's really so dire, why not move to somewhere safer?

> I would like to do that and if my planning works out I will be. Many Dallas neighborhoods are littered with drug paraphernalia. I am a civil servant and work with the citizens in all of the neighborhoods in Dallas Texas. Police officers have been leaving the force in record numbers and private citizens must be their own protection. Has nothing to do with wanting to be a badass it has everything to do with personal safety. I really did enjoy my time in Tokyo when I was there and the fact that I didn't feel like I needed to have a firearm.

Posted in: 3 million Americans carry a handgun daily: study See in context

I am one of those 3 million and with Americas drug problems and lack of mental health care it is a necessity. I am surrounded by police officers daily at work who carry as well. The inability of Police to help in time makes it necessary for private citizens to be their own first responders. I truly like the Koban in Japan and the awesome number of Police there. America can no more be like Japan as Japan can not be like America.

Posted in: Tattooist fined for operating without medical certification See in context

I have two very large tattoo's which can never be covered. With that said I really enjoyed my time in Tokyo and will return many times before I die. I have no urge to use an Onsen and my time living on a ship will hopefully be the last naked man I encounter. I realize tattoo's are looked down upon and there are no regulations in Japan, or inspections for safety. I can't imagine why anyone would want to be a tattoo artist in Japan when they know it is against the law.

I'd like to know what airport she departed from? I was allowed a corkscrew knife combo in my carry on bag leaving the US. Many men's personal grooming kits have them as standard contents. It was removed from me at Haneda Airport on my departing flight.

It is a part of history and should be preserved. As far as the war goes, it's over and almost all the people from that time are dead or dying. There are current conflicts in this world more important to focus on.

Mentally ill and Vietnamese is much harsher than saying he is Vietnamese. Overly sensitive about origin is an American problem anyway so keep us informed JT. Culture does separate behaviors and traits so the mention shouldn't be a problem.
