Japan and Korea have also outlawed swords since WWII. Japan has banned ALL firearms....which is why gun ranges in Hawaii make big bucks on Japanese
tourists that come JUST to shoot.
In most middle east countries, owning/carrying a rifle/pistol is no harder than going to a local police, and filling out an application for an instant
permit...seemingly no questions asked.
In Iraq(right now at least) a house is allowed one rifle, and one pistol (any type or action), and ONLY that ammunition for either. There are even
provisions for owning an RPG.
