What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

About 5 paragraphs down, the Beretta M9 is stated to be a "cold war era" pistol for the Army.

I guess I missed something, like about 2-3 decades of history.  Either that, or the "Cold War" lasted a lot longer than I thought it did.

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.  One hundred percent and then some.

Maybe they're merging the old cold war with the new cold war (or what some are saying is the new cold war).

I am informed that Mr. Glock personally thinks Americans are stupid. And, of course, there must be much scratching of heads about the idea that we would turn away from the perfection that is the Glock design.

Hopefully it won't slow anything up too much.

Many Austrians think that Americans are stupid.
If you consider that the vast majority of Austrians voted to join Austria to Hitler's Nazi Germany, that should tell us all we need to know about Austrians.

In the late 1960s, I spent a while in Austria. In the cities, you couldn't tell a fashionably-dressed woman from a fashionably-dressed man: They both wore fedoras, suit jackets, and even ties. That has probably changed, but at the time it was weird.
And they had the world's politest police! Whenever I asked a cop for directions or information, he would salute, click his heels, and bow, all simultaneously. And when they heard me speak German, they almost fell all over themselves in joy and friendship (gemütlichkeit). I could just imagine the progression of an arrest: "Excuse me, Herr Kriminal, but would you mind very much If I were to ask you to allow me to handcuff you? Thank you so very much!"
