If you can't own firearms, why do they need a gun license to buy ammo?

They’re allowed to have shotguns, but a double-barrel at best. No pump or semi-auto allowed.

Who wants to bet that government officials and “priviledged” individuals are exempt.

It’s a wonder someone doesn’t come along and take their money.

According to www.gunpolicy.org, they can own semi-autos and handguns but "with special authorization." That really means, "forget it, kid."

So, you had a situation where a population of many gov't teet suckers had no access to cash, food, etc. for a couple of weeks and no means to protect themselves and their families?

Now, this is Cyprus. A small population of largely domesticated Europeans.

Imagine this in Detroit or Chicago.

.........................................................

And their Government just stole billion of dollars from them and there isn’t a damned thing they can do about it.

That’s why their Government won’t allow them guns.

I was wondering why, with all of the riots, there wasn't a death toll. Makes sense now.

The Cypriots will have to locate weapons and ammo in Lebanon or Turkey...if they have enough money stashed in the mattress. Then it will be time to hunt bankers and politicians. No bag limit.

More correctly the EU Cental Bank and the EU HQ in general stole the money by levying the conscription - robbed the bank accounts of people who could not mount an armed resistance or take revenge

Crazy Joe Biden thinks that's all you need to protect yourselves from home invaders. Only, not to shoot the invaders but to fire the two shots into the air on your balcony, if you have one, if not then into the ceiling I suppose, to scare the miscreants away. Sounds like SOUND advise. ;)

Goverment with no check and balance ends up like Cyprus, broke and is failing as a little empire. No government control on corruption.

Yeah, yeah! I'll bet there are plenty of guns the government doesn't know about on that island. Cheap? No, probably not, but available? I'd be surprised if they weren't.

During the 1960’s riots between Greek & Turkish Cypriots, both sides were heavily armed with WWII small arms, shotguns, & pistols. Since the Republic of Cyprus minus the Turkish occupation zone is a clone of Greece (google `enosis’), their gun laws follow suit; but then take a gander at the island of Crete.

Cretans are armed to the teeth, have been since the Nazis invaded, are even more heavily armed following the fall of the Soviet Bloc, and the Athens government wisely chooses to leave well enough alone. A village wedding on Crete sounds like war breaking out.

It doesn’t matter ho much guns are restricted, when a war breaks out someone will supply the guns.

Sounds like Slo Joe advice. Especially when he clarified things by suggesting gals shoot through closed doors.

We need to get Cyprus into people’s minds here. The government just stole people’s life savings. How can that be a good argument for Democrats expanding government control of everything.
