  •  Thank you. (7+ / 0-)

    Last thing I want to do is to completely erase the shooting hobby from the planet.

    However, as you state, there needs to be regulation and oversight of it.

    I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

      South Korea totally swept the metals in the shooting events at the 2012 Olympics in London.

      Strict Gun Control Laws in South Korea


      SEOUL, South Korea — When news of frequent shooting incidents comes out of the United States, Koreans let out a small sigh of relief for living in a place where gun ownership is strictly illegal.

      Military service for Korean men is mandatory, but that is probably the only time a regular civilian will have a chance to hold a gun.

      In South Korea, only government-authorized personnel could own or carry guns. After taking a physical exam, permits are handed out to very limited number of people: Body guards of the president or foreign heads of states, firearm workers at industrial mining or construction sites, certified hunters or Olympic athlete shooters.

      When a citizen is caught selling or buying guns – produced in Korea for export purpose only – penalty is up to 10 years in prison or up to $18,000 in fines. Even possessing a toy gun ‘that resembles a real gun’ is strictly prohibited.
