    They rank 37 out of 178 in the world for private gun ownership. "pretty strict", compared to the United States, perhaps, but it's not like private gun ownership is outright illegal.

    Do you actually believe the US should have invaded Germany in the 30s?
    Do you suggest we invade Egypt now?

    What is it you think we should do? Send in paratroopers?
    We should be careful what we wish for. I see no effort on the part of this country to negotiate with anyone, maybe I am wrong.

    In a comparison of the rate of private gun ownership in 179 countries, Egypt ranks at No. 37.
    Civilians are not allowed to own long guns in Egypt. That's "pretty strict".

    Which is it guys? 37 or 115? There's a bit of a difference. Links to sources might help.

    Damn right! Don't you?

    Not now, but I'm sure the idea will look better as time goes by. Especially, if the Brotherhood carries out it's threat of war with Israel.
