Its not as if you need the same vetting process for a license in Switzerland either! show up with a drivers license and thats it !!...dunno about gun crime in Israel though!! I'd say it was pretty high.. on a different level albeit for different reasons ofcourse
Anyways when do you think some US states will tighten up? Whats going to be the lever that tips them over the edge. The UK has two major mass killings by Michael Ryan, and Thomas Hamilton, firstly semi auto rifles are banned apart from .22's, then after Dunblane, all handguns, a bizarre situation in its self.. that after Hungerford, you could still posess legally a .50 automatic 8 shot concelable pistol, but a .30 M1 was already banned at that time, .. now virtually all are gone.
After all the latest US troubles, who will start to shout if the NRA dont have such a strong voice ?
For the record Im not some anti gun lobbyist.. or a news of the world reporter for that matter
