Fropm Rob Morse’s What we Should Learn from the Attack on Israel | SlowFacts:
I know that about 100-thousand Israelis (archived source outside the paywall) applied for a permit to own a firearm in the last few weeks. For perspective, that would be the same proportion as 3.7 million US citizens applying for their carry permit in two weeks. Again for perspective, that 3.7-million is between the population of Connecticut and Oklahoma. Only 1.5-percent of Israelis were allowed to own firearms while US firearms ownership is about 25-percent. In contrast, 4-out-of-10 of US citizens live in a home with someone who owns a firearm.
The easy way? What we call Constitutional Carry. You are in a state of constant warfare and the last thing you need is going from a slow process to a full stoppage because bureaucracy is still up and running and the machine is more important that the individuals.
