    An off-duty soldier and a policeman from an elite unit at the scene of the Jerusalem attack shot the terrorist dead. The soldier, Moshe Klessner, 18, is the brother-in-law of IDF officer David Shapira, who killed the terrorist in the Mercaz Harav Yeshiva attack on March 6. The policeman Eli Mizrahi told reporters after he did what he was trained to do.

    The Israelis have self defense, and anti-terrorist training down to an art.

    Funny that in a society filled with guns and combat training, crime amongst residents isn't such an issue. I guess it puts things in perspective when you know that the person you are trying to rob/hurt will likely shoot you, or at least cripple you in a fight.

    Good on the officer for saving a lot of people that day.

    There is this guy that shoots the palm springs steel match with us time to time. He works for EDM Windrunner they manufacture really awesome 50 BMG rifles (yes this is california). He was in israel to demo the rifles to the military. He says despite what you see or hear israel is real anti gun. Only people issued/allowed to have guns are active/retired military and police, or citizens with special circumstances. In which case you can own "one" pistol or one rifle if they belong to a gun club.

    Worse than California, Hawaii, and New Jesrey...

    The Israel Dept. of the Interior makes notification to the general public the requirements necessary for the obtaining of a permit to possess a firearm:

    1. Applicant must be a permanent resident of Israel for 3 consecutive years prior to making application for a firearms permit.

    2. Applicant years of age.

    3. The permit request must be for personal use, not to engage in the business of firearms sales.

    4. Applicant must fall into one of the following categories:

    a. Part-time reservist (volunteer) for 3 years- may own 1 handgun
    b. Such a reservist (volunteer) is a member of a gun club- may own 1rifle
    c. Professional, licensed public transportation driver, transportinga minimum of 5 passengers- may own 1 handgun
    d. Licensed animal control officer- may own 2 hunting rifles, *not*full automatic weapons, or semi-automatic weapons with a limitedcapacity magazine.
    e. Full-time dealer of jewelry or large sums of cash or valuables-may own 1 handgun

    West Bank and Gaza Strip Settlers:

    1. A resident in a militarily strategic buffer zone, essential to thesecurity of the State of Israel- may own 1 handgun

    2. A business owner in these geographic areas- may own 1 handgun

    I have always understood that Israel tightly regulates personal firearms, however remember that a large percentage of the population does fall under the "active/retired/reservist military" category.

    I thought in Israel almost everyone at the age of 18 has to serve a number of years in their armed forces?

    That was my impression as well.

    Kinda a catch-22, as most everyone there has served military, and thus those who haven't, don't need to be owning guns.

    I've never been there, so perhaps that's incorrect?

    If you look though, even the military veterans must be either officers in the regular army or a regimental commander if the reserves. That does exclude many military vets.
