Currently I'm in the country of Norway, visiting my parents who live here and working at the same time. They have higher wages here so I have been welding my heart out this summer to earn some extra cash. Hopefully I will be back in the States by next month. Anyway to the point of this thread. The gun laws over here are very strict so it makes me appreciate the freedoms we have in America. Here in Norway, if you want a firearm.. you must join a club first. It costs $300 - $400 at first and you must pass a two day training course. The next six months is your trial period in which you shoot the clubs 22 pistols. After that period you can document that your a faithful member of the club and have had some training. They send off the paperwork to the police and you sit and wait hoping they approve what you asked for... You have to have a safe at home either a pistol safe bolted to the floor or one that weighs 300 kg. Since I was here for just a short period I had no desire to go through all of that process. Just makes me appreciate things more back home.
