What is it like living in USA?

I mean safety wise. Do you guys feel safe walking around? Would you answer the door at night time? etc. Do you feel the need for guns?

The way the US is portrayed in other places is comically sensationalized. Also, the US is a huge place. You don't hear stories about the Apple Pie Social in Cornhole, Oklahoma on the news in (Whatever Country You Live In) but you will hear about some shoot-em-up in the Roseland neighborhood in Chicago that is irrelevant to everyone outside of a 10 block radius, but is reported internationally as if it's some definitive thing.

i don't think i ever really felt unsafe going anywhere. i walked around downtown detroit all the time without fear. i got no issue answering my door at any time unless it the police. i have personally never owned a gun or ever felt i needed one. it fun to joke about the nsa crap and whatever but for me personally i think we are  very safe

 

 

well with the nsa crap it kinda feel like a caged animal at the zoo being watched all the time.

 

 

it's about the opposite as the rest of the world thinks, it's kind of funny Phone Post 3.0

It's pretty awesome, gangbangers and gangsters are nice dudes. I was at the gas station yesterday and I had this dude offering me the new Hobbit in HD quality for $15. Told the dude I'd go get money from my car and be right back and he offered to throw in a gram of weed for free haha. he knew I wasn't coming back.

 

No but seriously, it's nothing like what people make it out to be. Except for a few select areas that have extreme gang violence, it's peaceful here. The NSA can track my porn habits and my OG habits, big deal. Although I am kind of ashamed about the OG thing......

Lots of great places to live, I've lived most of my life is South Carolina, the town I live in now is great, mostly crime free. Mostly you find people bitching about stupid shit. Phone Post 3.0

i look outside before i answer the door, but i do that all the time.

I feel safe unless there are black people or mexicans around Phone Post 3.0

When I lived in St. Louis I had my 9mm everywhere I went. 

Now I live in Austin, and my biggest headache is homeless people. I carried once down here. But on the other hand, I did investigate a sound in the house at 3 am this morning with my 9mm.

I feel more than safe in the right part of town. If you start getting closer to the sketchier third world ghettos, I don't feel particularly safe walking around. At all.

If someone knocks on my door at night and I don't know them, I probably won't answer. I'm not paranoid but you never know. Phone Post 3.0

I haven't locked my doors or taken the keys out of my car at my house in 10 years but I live in the sticks Phone Post 3.0

It all depends on what areas you're in. Some areas are fine, some areas are not. For the most part, most areas outside of a city are fine, obviously there's exceptions, but generally serious crime in residential areas are fairly low

It's pretty cool, abnormal proportion of gay to straight men though - really high. Phone Post 3.0

I feel incredibly safe - in even some of the worse neighborhoods.

The biggest problem I find is that the best barbecue is usually in the worst places. Phone Post

That would depend on where you live, your race, and the type of neighborhood you're waking in. Ranges from perfectly safe to watch your back

Living in the USA is a lot like living in whatever country you are in, multiplied by "better", multiplied by 1000.
