I'm not talking here about reservists, security officers, or anything like that. I'm talking about the average person.
“Mexico has strict gun laws. Mexican citizens and legal residents may purchase new non-military firearms for self-protection or hunting only after receiving approval of a petition to the Defense Ministry, which performs extensive background checks."
“It is forbidden in Israel to own any kind of firearm, including air pistols and rifles, without a firearms license."
"The regulation for gun ownership became stricter following the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995. Gun ownership in Israel is considered a privilege and not a right."
Don't take this personal, but I don't totally trust wikipedia. As I understand it, anybody can change any information on a particular entry on wikipedia.
I could be wrong about that. I just find it fascinating in light of the hysteria we're currently subjected to when it comes to the gun control "debate".
