One of the people murdered by Palestinian Authority terrorists Tuesday used to carry a gun for self-defense, but Israeli authorities took away his permit in late 2009 – leaving him defenseless.

Attorney Yitzchak Bam of the Forum for the Land of Israel represented the deceased man in his legal attempts to win back his gun permit. “In December, he received a letter according to which the permit is suspended because of closed criminal files regarding disturbance of the public peace,” he related. “The last closed file was from the period immediately after the Disengagement,” he said.

I agree with you in the USA.

In Israel, however, 20% of the population is arab and of that 20%, 50% would use easily-available weapons to kill people.

Ergo, permitting requirements. Typically, it’s no big deal to get one, more of a “shall issue” thing.
