Whoah, that is a stupid law. Not even a license law ...
That is just .. disturbing!


What's stupid about it?

If you try to rob a person or place in Texas, Oklahoma or a number of other states you should be aware that you could get a serious case of lead poisoning. I don't have to hope that the local law enforcement will show up in time to protect me or my family.

Have gun, will use it. big gun


Yes BUT!
The robber will most likely also have a gun.
You guys thinks it's so good to shoot people if they put their foot on your lawn.
You think it's good that shop owners can shoot robbers. I think that too, they should get shot.
But how many robberies do you have each week?
In sweden we may have about maximum ... 1.
Why?
because we are like canada! We still dont have weapons due to very strict laws ...


That is the point isn't it. The robber MAY HAVE A GUN. What are YOU going to do to protect your life and property, wish the bad guys away? Or call the police, a good idea, but many places in the USA are FAR from the nearest help. You have to take personal responsibility for personal safety.

I don't care if they walk on my lawn(much) but my tolerance ends at the door.

Yes I do happen to think it is good that an innocent store clerk is able to defend themselves from an armed robber.





INCIDENCE OF CRIME

The crime rate in Sweden is high compared to other industrialized countries. An analysis was done using INTERPOL data for Sweden. For purpose of comparison, data were drawn for the seven offenses used to compute the United States FBI's index of crime. Index offenses include murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny, and motor vehicle theft. The combined total of these offenses constitutes the Index used for trend calculation purposes. Sweden will be compared with Japan (country with a low crime rate) and USA (country with a high crime rate). According to the INTERPOL data, for murder, the rate in 2001 was 10.01 per 100,000 population for Sweden, 1.10 for Japan, and 5.61 for USA. For rape, the rate in 2001 was 23.39 for Sweden, compared with 1.78 for Japan and 31.77 for USA. For robbery, the rate in 2001 was 95.83 for Sweden, 4.08 for Japan, and 148.50 for USA. For aggravated assault, the rate in 2001 was 667.42 for Sweden, 23.78 for Japan, and 318.55 for USA. For burglary, the rate in 2001 was 1323.90 for Sweden, 233.60 for Japan, and 740.80 for USA. The rate of larceny for 2001 was 6988.81 for Sweden, 1401.26 for Japan, and 2484.64 for USA. The rate for motor vehicle theft in 2001 was 495.21 for Sweden, compared with 44.28 for Japan and 430.64 for USA. The rate for all index offenses combined was 9604.57 for Sweden, compared with 1709.88 for Japan and 4160.51 for USA. (Note that Japan data are for year 2000)



Not too bad sure, but hardly Disney World.

Go to a Gun Store, they can tell you all about it or go to a shooting range and see what you like.

You can go to any store and walk out with a long gun at 18 with just an ID. You can buy a pistol from a private individual at 18. You must be 21 to buy a pistol from a dealer though.


And I cant think of any state where you need a license to purchase a gun. This isnt canada.    But here in michigan, I do need whats called a purchase permit to buy any pistol, new or used. All that is, is a reason for the buyer to come into the police station, take a safety test, and have the police run a S/N check on the pistol to make sure it isnt stolen or wasnt used in a crime. Some stations do a "safety inspection" to make sure it operates properly and wont blow up in your hand. I havent had that done though.


If you do have to take the test, dont worry. Its stupid easy, and they give you a brochure to read that has all the answers in it. It just covers basic safety rules and laws on storage/ transportation.

Have you ever been auto crossing?
I say buy a gun first and go autocross.

Let me rephrase that, Buy a Helmet then Autocross.

You just need a purchase permit for handguns here, just requires a little paperwork at the sheriffs office.  You can buy as many as you want after that lol.  The city of Omaha also requires registration for handguns and if you buy one within the city limits you have to register it before you can take possession.
