    Default What country is the most gun-friendly?

    I know that our government has laid out a lot of gun control laws that most of us find a bit overboard, to say the least. However, we do still have our 2nd Amendment rights, sort of. And, we all know there are a lot of nations where guns are basically completely banned from normal citizens.

    Here's the question I have. Are there any countries MORE gun friendly than America? Just wondering. Thought it might make a fun conversation!

    Somalia, I'd think.

    Everyone seems to have a gun or rifle of some sort at home in Iraq, too.

    But there just isn't another country where law and order prevails that is as gun-friendly as ours.

    I'm guessing that's because the founders of this country were the only founders of any civilized country smart enough to put those rights down on paper

    I don't know about those. I think gun ownership in both of those countries is closely tied to service/training in the military reserves.

    Surprisingly, New Zealand appears to be somewhat reasonable on guns (not as good as here, but far better than say, England.)

    But, again, I don't think that any country in the civilized word protects the right to own a firearm as extensively as the U.S.

    In Iraq every household is permitted to own 1 rifle, an AK-47, and a certain amount of ammo. They may be allowed to own 1 / adult male but I'm not sure.

    - A lot of countries in Africa have little to no law, gun or otherwise so I'd guess they are better?

    - In Israel I think everyone is a trained solider and has quick access to guns but I don't know where they stand on carrying weapons.

    Depending on what states you look at the US isn't much better then any other country and worse then many

    Not so much Iraq, the honest law abiding citizens are allowed one rifle per fighting age male. Which I believe is 16 years of age. That is it no ifs ands or buts about it.

    When injustice becomes law, rebellion becomes duty!
