"Mister Nick" had managed construction projects around the world, but Nigeria was different from any place else he had worked. Absolute gun control - for the law abiding. The criminals ran rampant. Occasionally a handgun for protection would be offered to one of his workmen, but if in fact he bought it, that night the seller's brother the policeman would arrive to enforce the gun ban, confiscating the weapon (and no doubt returning it so the process would repeat), and collecting a $100 "fine" in lieu of prosecution. He told me of a native watchman (they couldn't have actual guards) who was found with his brains splattered across the gate, and of two of his workers on the floor with rifles held to their heads while the bandits discussed whether it was worth expending the bullets to kill them. He thinks it would be a good idea if we could send all the gun control advocates over there so they can live with the consequences, and we won't need to.
In Australia, the anti's aren't happy w/ all the restrictions they already have in place, they now claim that youth, learning to shoot in a supervised, controlled environment, creates criminals and sociopaths. (Boy, that sentiment sounds familiar even though the exact opposite is the case) and in the UK, hoplophobes are calling for restrictions on expended brass.
Over here, we have politicians calling for not only gun registration but ammo registration, bans on centerfire rifle ammo, bans on small guns, big guns, scary looking guns, hunting, shooting ranges, etc.
But they don't really want to ban all guns.
