A Gun Nutters Dream

One of the justifications for loose (or nonexistent) gun control laws, is that an armed population is the last defense against an evil government. So I was amused yesterday to see, buried within an article on the front page of The Australian, the following statement:

In a country where 18 months of military service is compulsory, each household has been encouraged to keep at least six loaded guns handy.

This freedom loving country is Iraq.
