We should be alot like Israel, people packin full auto's all the time. Sure would reduce crime.
An armed society is a polite society!

INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE. If you do not love the CONSTITUTION AS IT IS WRITTEN then you are free to leave MY COUNTRY at this time.

I know I could cut and paste a Wikepedia article to show how smart I am, but I'd rather ask all you dumbasses. What type of government do they have? Is it a fairly open society, or is it a police state? I wonder because those are other things to take into account. For instance, many of us talk about Switzerland as being a great place because of their militia system and low crime rate, but on the other hand, having any sort of Nazi literature is against the law. They have the guns, but not the individual liberty we have. So how is Israel?

Israel

Israel is, in my experience and opinion, not a free country and certainly lacking many freedoms that we have in the US. It is a good country, and if hell froze over and I had to GTFO of the USA, it is the only country I'd contemplate immigrating to. I got my degree in International Relations and went to Israel, but both were in the mid-90s. If memory serves, they have a system with a similar feel/set-up to Canada or the UK (not surprising since the Brits were formative in the nation's infancy).

Israel is a citizen-centered government, where willing citizens get more than simple residents. They have mandatory military service for all able citizens. Gun control is alive and well; you cannot simply buy and carry a gun in the fashion we enjoy here stateside. Most people are in some sort or active, reserve, or guard status which is why you see them carrying M16s, Galils and UZIs around. The kibbutz (like a laid-back commune) system is prevalent in a lot of rural areas.

The general feeling I got was that if you were a committed citizen, then you had it pretty good and were taken care of better than in a lot of small countries. Hebrew law (kosher restrictions on many restaurants and restrictions on Sabbath activities for instance) are prevalent and expected to be complied with. It's nowhere near the level of religious fascism you see in Muslim nations like Saudi Arabia or Turkey, but it's there and there's not much to be done about it.
