15 Countries with the Strictest Gun Laws in the World

Gun laws are always controversial questions, but what are the countries with the srictest gun lwas in the world? Insider Monkey has investigated this topic very thoroughly in their article. People have become so intrigued with the idea of owning a gun, they’ll attempt to find any way to make their own, if there were problems with being able to purchase one. The 3D printed gun schematics are available all over the internet, and a mere amateur with access to the internet and a 3D printer can now own a gun if they wish.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three countries with the srictest gun lwas in the world.

The first one is Canada. Interestingly Canada, who is bordered by the United States (the country where there are literally more guns than people) makes our list. However, Canada does not share the same philosophy when it comes to guns. Canadians are restricted in caliber, capacity and make of guns. Basically, in Canada you can possess a gun for hunting only. In fact, acquiring a gun for self defense purposes in Canada can be a bother, as you are only permitted to carry handguns only if you work with dangerous animals or handle valuable goods. The second country should be Germany. It is quite clear why Germany would be reluctant in arming its general population. The country has a pretty dark past, and since the end of World War Two the country has maintained a pretty peaceful demeanor. If you are able to prove the following: age of 18 years or older, trustworthiness, personal adequacy, expert knowledge and necessity, you may own a firearm in Germany, so good luck. At last, but least we should mention Australia. The only guns you are able to own without a license in Australia are antique black powder guns made prior to the 20th century. For everything else you will need to go through the rigorous process of acquiring a license. And you are not allowed all sorts of firearms as well. You are limited to caliber and capacity as well as barrel length. The weird thing is, airsoft guns are also totally banned in Australia – just one of the reasons why this country is on our list of countries with the strictest gun laws in the world.
