Navy SEAL Emblum Rifle Found Near Shooter's Home in Israel

30 May 2016

Israel National News

Border Police officers located a semi-automatic M-16 assault rifle on Monday in a home in the Arab Israeli village of Ain al-Sahla in the Wadi Ara region in the north. Making the finding of the M-16 all the more unusual was that the lethal weapon was inscribed with the logo of the US Navy SEALs, though the insignia appears likely to have been faked. Adding another troubling aspect to the find is the fact that Wadi Ara was the hometown of the terrorist Nashat Milhem,... (GunPolicy.org)

Americans Face Extreme Difficulty Exporting Their Guns

Wall Street Journal, Blog

When American Tom Heberlein tried to import his firearms to Sweden, he got as far as his transfer in the U.K. before it started to become complicated. There, despite having the correct paperwork, a U.K. customs official said: "You can't have these guns." And thus began Mr. Heberlein's global gun education. Although Mr. Heberlein did, after a lot of negotiation, finally get his guns through U.K. customs and in to Sweden, the entire experience created a hassle he hadn't... (GunPolicy.org)

Neither Side Wants an Israeli Second Amendment

Jerusalem Post

Gun control isn't usually a major political issue here, but it has come up in a big way in recent months, after several terrorists in the current wave of terrorism were subdued by civilians. The debate on gun control came to a head in Monday's inaugural meeting of the Knesset Caucus on Firearms Policy - perhaps the closet Israel has ever gotten to a US-style "gun lobby" - but even those in favor of easing regulations have made it clear that they're not gunning for...

Gun Control Advocates Envy Australia, Britain's Strict Laws

Australia and Britain have been held out as examples of foreign countries that moved quickly to impose gun restrictions in the wake of national tragedies as the United States grapples with what — if any — policy reforms could prevent future mass shootings like the recent attack in Oregon. Both countries saw a drop in gun-related crimes after imposing restrictions, though analysts debate whether the laws deserve credit. But all sides agree the moves Britain and... (GunPolicy.org)

Three European Countries Lead US in Mass Shootings: WSJ

The latest U.S. shooting that ended in the deaths of 10 people at an Oregon college last week is reigniting calls for tighter gun laws and prompting comparisons to gun violence in other countries. President Barack Obama asked why Americans can't follow the example of the U.K. and Australia. They crafted laws that "almost eliminate mass shootings," he said.

The Latin American Gun Leak

During the 1980s, El Salvador was the single largest recipient of U.S. military hardware and weaponry in the Western Hemisphere.
