Actually, aside from the psychological test and requirements to take part in shooting competitions for the 'sports license,' the gun laws are pretty similar. And actually the requirements for a full auto are less strict in Poland than US as the target shooting license allows you to obtain them AND concealed carry without further tests or certifications. In the US, to do that you would first need a FOID card just to own a weapon, concealed carry to carry the weapon, then ATF permit which costs thousands and is extremely hard to get for full autos.
'Legal' does not mean anyone can own them and if you buy any semi auto handgun, rifle, etc 'legally' you have to pass FBI checks. One liberal reporter thought he knew as much as you do about US gun laws and that it would be a piece of cake to obtain a handgun, well lo and behold he wasn't able to due to an old conviction for battering his wife years back... If you want to buy an illegal gun, yes it's quite easy as you can drive to a number of bad neighborhoods and purchase one. That's not much different than buying an illegal gun in the ghettos in Marseilles or Molenbeek or hand grenades in Malmo. In fact, it's quite easy to obtain an illegal weapon in Poland too - all one would need to do is purchase a bobby gun which requires no permits, IDs, etc. and a lil DIY and you got yourself a 9.
The guns that are easily obtained in the US are not legally acquired - they are ILLEGALLY acquired - big difference. Same as in Mexico, France, Belgium, Sweden, etc. France's and Belgium's strict gun laws didn't prevent a couple dudes from massacring a hundred people with AK47's, neither did UK's laws prevent London's murders from exceeding NYC's earlier this year, did they??
Somehow I don't think that all those gunmen are mentally ill or gang members
I can't speak for other cities, but in Chicago it's DEFINETELY mostly gang members and more specifically young black males - the statistics prove this. Its also limited to basically 3 areas that account for the vast majority of homicides - 80% of which aren't even solved.
I read this article earlier this morning - this is from a fellow Chicagoan - an immigrant like myself who never complained and put himself through school, and tempting as it may be for him isn't pulling the bullsh1t black card which appears to be so damn hard for the rest of black and brown young men and women today...
