@Zeust, as in most things, everything you mention varies by jurisdiction. The USA is an actual federal state. Each individual US state has a parallel jurisdiction to the over-arching jurisdiction of the USA. Where there are no federal laws, state law holds. In many cases, where there are federal laws, state law can supersede, depending on how the federal law is written. Every example you give actually has 51 different variations (one for each state and then a 51st for those territories that are under exclusively Federal jurisdiction). In some cases, the variations can be in complete opposition to each other. General statements about law in the USA are less likely to be true than for general statements about law over the entire extent of Europe.

I love this one, it's awesome.
Also great that we became number two. We sure love our "gedoog" laws ;)

Hey, it's only illegal if you get caught. That's not a law anywhere, but I say that makes a lot of places free.

The United States is a major home-schooling country --many European countries don't allow it.
The Americans are suspicious of Social engineering programmes in the state school systems.
Some States-- mainly in the West -- are not in the news because the people keep a low profile, however they are extremely libertarian.
Their motto is, "I love my country, but I don't trust my government." leave them and their guns alone, and they are good neighbors.
