Law / Weapons laws in Poland. Carrying a concealed handgun? [916]

I was kind of surprised to read about Poland having such strict gun control, especially since the Russian and Nazi invasions. If Poland had been an armed country, invaders would think twice before crossing the border. Just look at Switzerland. They aren't neutral because they say they are. Every male is required to have a rifle in the house and all the bridges are pre-wired with explosives (if there is an invasion, the bridge can be blown up and thereby slowing down the invader long enough for the citizens and army to respond). Nobody bothers Switzerland.

American fought hard against an oppressive British rule, so the American philosophy is that the citizens should be armed at least as well at the government so that the people can defend themselves from a tyrannical government, if the need should arise again.
