The same could be said by us. I worked for a Canadian company for many years. Of course, there was lots of good natured teasing of one another. And few Canadians (and even more Americans themselves) truly understand our American obsession with the second amendment. That said, I'd feel comfortable with a Canadian watching my back in a tough situation. For all the high moralizing bulls!t that I have heard, I know when things got real their personal grit and loyalty were unparalleled.
