In general, people here think americans are a bit nuts when it comes to the gun culture. Showing Alex Jones would make potential emigrants think twice. I personally understand him, I would be pretty okay being his neighbor but hey that was not the question, right?
On the other hand, whenever some soft judge rules in favor of some thugs, or against someone defending his house, or whenever someone (a trend is: firemen, ambulance personnel etc) is assaulted, some will refer to the USA, where "everybody has the right to shoot anyone" with some envy.
Some negative myth/truth (you decide) is that you have to be extremely careful not to get sued for some insane amount as a result of doing something "wrong", where wrong can mean something like trying to save someone bleeding next to the road and not succeeding.
