Netanyahu Talks a Good Game About Independence and Self-Defense, But . . .
The only problem with Netanyahu's bold statement in favor of self-defense is that it comes without any noticeable effort on his part to reform Israel's very restrictive gun laws. That last sentence might come as something of a surprise here in the U.S., where many seem to believe that Israeli citizens enjoy quite light regulation of their right to keep and bear arms. According to GunPolicy.org (a site run from a strongly anti-gun perspective, but still offering a great deal of useful information about gun laws around the world), the reality is far less rosy.
