It’s the fundamental right of citizens to protect themselves, here in Finland if you sought a weapon for that specific reason, you would never get one, with your name then being placed on some national watch list.
‘I don’t feel safe anymore’ Surge in Austrian gun sales since migrant crisis
THERE has been a surge in firearm sales in Austria since the migrant crisis in Europe, with some citizens now reporting they “feel like foreigners” in their own country.
During an interview with NRATV, Jeffrey Pang, who works for Austria’s oldest firearms store, linked the rise in the self-defence market to “the immigrant crisis in Europe”.
He said the surge in firearm sales coincided with reports of robberies, rapes and break-ins since the migrant crisis began.
Mr Pang said the biggest growth market for gun owners was among women who felt unsafe outside.
He said: “Our security level has diminished in the last couple months.
“You see the crowds They’re shouting, they’re drinking, there is no security anymore.”
