Gun Rights in Your Nation?

Postby JJ Place » Mon Mar 29, 2010 9:49 pm

What are the Gun Rights or Lack of there of like in your nation, and how is the society effected as a result of these previously mentioned Gun Issues?

In JJ Place, there are absolutely no restrictions placed by the government on guns; guns can often be found being sold freely (no, not for free, but without restrictions) in most Mega-Marts or even in smaller stores. A heavily armed society is a happy society, as well as an incredibly safe society.

Everybody who will or does use a gun legally and responsibly has one. Everybody who wouldn't or doesn't, does not have one. In Soviet Russia, guns make you!

In Frenca, you can only get a gun if you have:
no criminal record
a gun license
have to be 25 or older
And if people buy guns from the black market, their life is bye bye...

The Swiss policy is adopted in our country. It is illegal to NOT own one machinegun (equivilant to three rifles or six handguns).

The Minotzian government sets no regulation on weapons owned by private citizens, and with a low population and relatively high standard of living, crime is not a serious problem.

The Most Serene Republic maintains a policy of zero tolerance for privately owned weaponry for invidual citizens. However, thanks to the Commune Act of 1996, weapons may be purchased collectively by a community and stored in the local branch of the People's Militia under tight lock and key. The keys to said locker are given to the local Council and the Magister of the Militia until such a time that they are needed.

We do not permit importing or exporting weapons. There are no restrictions on owning guns but the demand is so low that it would be difficult to find a place to buy one.

Gun rights in Radictistan are nearly absolute. Fully-automatic assault rifles are freely available to citizens with minimal red tape to purchase. There are no legal disqualifications for owning firearms; even a convicted violent felon can walk into a gunshop and walk out with an automatic rifle the same day.

Every citizen has military issued weapons. military service is mandatory and when you serve your 2 years you take the standard issue gear home with you and are a military reserve for life.Prior to military service your Minor and not allowed to own them but can use them under adult supervision.

Because of this youth related crimes are crippling since the adults are taught to not shot unarmed people, so the kids go crazy at times, These youth's are usually from the more liberal families in the nation that have not properly taught their children proper respect for a person or property. Otherwise its ok because criminals do not dare commit a crime upon people for the fear that every person within earshot will level their service issue M1911A1 at them.Burglaries and such do happen. Crimes of Passion are rare since Duels are allowed for Honor sake.

Well, sub machine guns are considered Assault weapons as defined by my nations charter.
And they don't have to be In their hands. The Surgeons manage.
Plus, the time period my nation takes place in is less than 5 years after a brutal civil war, almost everyone is a veteran, and the punishment for breaking that law is only deportation.

We have a socialized gun system. Every Union citizen can get at least one firearm of their choice along with as much ammo as they need. We have no restrictions on weapons, which means as long as you take your mandatory socialized safety and training course you can get whatever kind of gun you want. However, different weapons require different safety and training courses. Everyone may also conceal their weapons if they wish. Because everyone is armed, nobody shoots each other because they know they'll get shot at back. We have no crime at all in the Union, much less violent crime. The people here work together rather than shoot at each other.

Our constitution explicitly states that all citizens have an inalienable right to own and carry modern/contemperary weaponry. As a result any citizen of age can and usually does carry some kind of weapon.

Pretty much anything you can carry is allowed, though full auto weapons and anything with a caliber .45 or higher needs to be registered. Only adults may purchase (18+) though any are allowed to carry (13 and under requires parental supervision). Violent felons are not allowed weapons, but since we make considerable use of the death penalty thats not much of an issue. Gun safety is taught throughout school. Obviously weapons are not allowed for civilians on most government property.

Crime was low till some1 apparently abolished the prison system without my knowledge.....

guns are mechanical objects.

sentient species of course even more so.
mechanical objects are not generally considered living organisms for the purpose of judicial rights.

People can own certain gun models for their protection (pistols only), after getting a special permission from the state that they are mentally capable of using a weapon properly.
