Mark: I should get an illegal alien on the snow... but how to book one? What are we like as a people? Well, let's look at two sets of facts... Nine years ago, we were attacked. 3,000 people died. In response, we started two long, bloody wars and built a vast homeland security apparatus-- all at a cost of trillions! Now consider this. During those same nine years, 270,000 Americans were killed by gunfire at home. Our response? We weakened our gun laws. Alien: Whirrrr! Fail. Cannot comprehend. Mark: Well, you may be a little jet-lagged.
