    Firearm Sales Increase In Germany

    Apparently it isn't just American "cowboys" (This is a derogatory insult in reference to traditional Americans, btw ) who choose to protect themselves with firearms:

    "As of today, close to 640,000 German citizens are legally permitted to carry a deterrent gun or similar self-defense weapon. To put things in perspective, in 2014, there were just 260,000.

    That’s nearly a 250 percent increase in just five years."

    https://voiceofeurope.com/2019/09/ge...SWVPW3tWsqwVb9

    Regardless of nationality, when Muhammad, Jamal, or just some vagrant street thug attacks innocent citizens, the normal response by 'normal' law-abiding citizens is to fight back. But fists against machetes, for example, is rarely effective.

    Firearms are the only truly practical tool that can be used to provide the average citizen with a defensive edge.

    Wake the f--- up, and stop insulting pro-gun Americans when you know damn well we're right about protecting ourselves and other people with firearms... Thank God for the Second Amendment!

    Calm down, Gareth.

    Pushing pro-gun propaganda is not going to change anyone's views, any more than all the militant Christian stuff.

    It may even be counterproductive but if this works for you in the USA then fine. I'm very pleased for you

    Thank you for contributing to the topic.

    Your personal opinion has been duly noted and just as duly disregarded.

    There might be firearms owned by non-Germans like Jews or even Muslims .


    Never the less, there is some confusion about the degree of permits :

    1.) Grand Permit
    2.) Small Permit for pepper spray and fear-shot-pistols

    Then there is the Federation of Shooters ( Deutscher Schützenbund ) with 1.35 million members .


    Last is the registry that registers weapons and weapon parts , and there are 5.37 million shoot-weapons and parts registered ,
    with long range rifles and shotguns mainly at 3.6 million .


    This article says , that the sport of shooting leds to the increase in registered weapons :
    Der Deutsche Schützenbund (DSB) mit 1,35 Millionen Mitgliedern nennt als Grund für den Zuwachs die zunehmende Attraktivität des Schießsports, der beliebt sei und nach den Erfolgen bei den Olympischen Spielen ein gutes Image habe. Der Deutsche Jagdverband (DJV) verzeichnet seit Jahren eine steigende Zahl von Jägern. Inzwischen besitzen nach Verbandsangaben mehr als 381 800 Deutsche einen Jagdschein.

    True, as it is here in America. But at least the indigenous population is increasingly demanding the right to bear arms rather than cower in their bedrooms instead of walking their streets with added confidence.

    This is how it looks in Europe:


    But those guns (for example in Finland) are mainly hunting guns and secondly sport shooting guns (shooting range). Not automatic guns, not anything anybody is allowed/can carry everyday (self defense). And the control to get and keep one? Is extremely tight. So no any ''cowboys'' here
    Sorry Gareth ... I just could help myself now.

    Well, no. You need a "small permit" (see schwab's post) even for pepper spray (seriously...), carrying a butterfly knife with you is not allowed either, and running around with guns is very strictly confined to police and security personell in general. The Grand permit allows you possess a shooting weapon, which you are not allowed to carry around with you outside your home or training grounds. Due to the complicated process to even get a permit and their weird limitations, most shooting sport clubs keep the weapons there for you.

    So, self defense on the street when you suddenly run into someone wielding a sword into someone else (happened just a few weeks ago, a Syrian killed another musel with a fuckn sword on open street ) is still, by and large, limited to your fists, your feet to run away, or your mobile phone to call the police.

    But it could indeed be that the newly won interest in shooting sports have to do with the increasing feeling of insecurity here, with the knife murder epidemic 'n stuff.
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    There will never be an end to the firearms debate. What works in one country may not do so elsewhere and to offer a one-size-fits-all solution is overly simplistic.

    History and culture play a major role. Americans have grown up with guns and (generally speaking) know how to use them responsibly. Were you to suddenly give every Englishman a gun though it would be catastrophic and there would be a shooting incident every time there was a row in the local pub

    On balance, I’d rather do without these things but I’m only speaking as an English citizen and would never presume to tell the rest of the world what is best for them!

    I live in the State of Oregon where "open carry" is permitted.
    Some businesses even give you a discount for doing it.

    I come from an anti-gun family. When I met Gareth, he introduced me to the world of firearms and shooting sports, and I was hooked. Although I prefer to carry concealed, I am not opposed to open carry, which is also legal in my State. I would simply rather not advertise to the world that I carry a firearm. God forbid, should I ever have the need to draw my pistol to kill an attacker, I want it to come as a big surprise to them, which would be to my advantage.
    Not all in life is at it appears to be.
