    Default Kenya, best gun laws in Africa

    Perhaps the USA should copy Kenya's gun laws.

    It is illegal in Kenya to own any type of firearm without a valid gun ownership license as spelled out under the Firearms Act (Cap. 114) Laws of Kenya. Anyone who is 12 years or older can apply to privately own a gun. However, such persons must provide in writing to the Chief Licensing Officer (CLO) stating genuine reason(s) for their need to privately own and carry a firearm. It remains at the discretion of the CLO to make a decision to award, deny or revoke a gun ownership license based on the reason(s) given. Anyone seeking to hold a gun license must pass the most stringent of background checks that probes into their past and present criminal, mental health and well as domestic violence records. Failure to pass one of these checks automatically bars one from being permitted to own a firearm. These checks are regularly repeated and must be continually passed for anyone to continue holding the gun license. Failure to pass any of these checks at any stage, means an automatic and immediate revocation of the issued license. Once licensed to own a gun, no permit is required in order to carry around a concealed firearm.
    If we would just follow their example our malls and military bases could be as safe as theirs.

    When the current Kenyan laws were passed the question came up about the use of firearms for hunting. The Kenyan solution was to ban all hunting in 1977. The thinking was that if there was absolutely no reason to own a gun even by the "Fudds" there was no reason to ever issue a permit.

    The hunting ban was overturned a few years ago for a multitude of economic reasons but the fact that it ever existed shows the thinking over there.

    The libs think America is exceptional because their selective morality requires it be Americas moral mission to bomb rogue nations into submission.

    The truth is that America is exceptional because we have a Bill of Rights instead of kooky Kenyan laws.

    Sadly the people pine to be like Kenya and if they are not careful they will get what they wish for.

    The most dangerous thing in the world is a person with an automatic weapon that is a different religion than YOU.

    Doug, the killer is not religion - it is intolerance. Rick

    You gotta remember one of the most influential policy wonks in Kenya was Barak Obama's father.

    Islam isn't a religion, it's ideology.

    "You gotta remember one of the most influential policy wonks in Kenya was Barak Obama's father."

    And that make our situation here in the US even more tenuous. The US has been severely damaged under the leadership of who ever is pulling O' bunglers strings. I hope that the election in 2014 and 2016 will get some people in washington working to restore the United States to it's rightful place in the world.
