Hungary for a Win

Hungary is loosening some of it’s gun laws, namely making permits last a lifetime, and simplifying the process for purchasing a firearm.

    Anyone want to bet that “Gun Death” goes down, and the Brady Center removes Hungary from their list of “Western, civilized nations” with “strong gun control laws”?

  2. Sterling Archer says:

    So…It looks to me that a former Warsaw Pact country is now more firearms friendly than some U.S. states (IL, NJ, NY, MA, MD).

    Does anyone else see the humor / irony in this?

    I don’t know Archer, I don’t think the Hungarians ever made the cherry-picked “civilized Western nation” list. They are a little too Slavic, like their Eastern neighbors.

    Aside from the Japanese the usual list of Euro countries is pretty pure Nordic/Anglo-Saxon white. When they say “Western”, they really mean “North-Western Europe, but we ignore the Swiss and we don’t talk about the French much.”

    It’s always “England this” and “the Netherlands that” with occasional shots of rosy-cheeked blond Viking children.

    No Spaniards, Italians, Greeks, or other swarthy Mediterranean types need apply, the Brady’s must feel they are “unreliable”.
