It is interesting to note, all other questions aside, that America is the only "western" country I can think of where gun ownership is a
constitutional (?) right and a gun is something that a lot of people own and/or have experience with.
With the exception of possibly farmers (shotguns, not glocks!), sports persons and LEO's, I think most if not all of Europe is gun-free. I've lived
in 3 countries in my life, UK, Germany, Holland and visited or traveled through 2 others, Belgium and France. I didn't see anyone except LEO's with
guns there either.
I must admit the social and practical aspects of it have always interested me. Do people take it everywhere, to work, to bowling, to the bar, etc? Is
it all visible? Conceal carry? Etc, etc.
