Interesting. Looks like gun lobbies aren’t unique to America after all, and neither is logic:
But Cuma İçten, the chairman of the Weapon Producers, Sellers and Lovers Association (SÜSASD), claims that a weapon is a basic human right, saying: “It is expensive for the state to protect every citizen. But self-defense is a right for everyone. It is easy for illegal organizations have weapons, so upstanding citizens should be given the same right.”
It’s short and worth a read. Clearly, Turkey has a long ways to go to catch up to us on common sense gun laws — like freedom to own and carry firearms for law abiding citizens.
