Contrary to my original understanding of Europe, some countries there have a substantial amount of privately held guns. Unfortunately, very few of them permit defensive use. Even Switzerland has curtailed legal carry, leaving Czechia, Estonia, Lithuania, Moldova and possibly some of the ex-Yugoslav fragments as places where effective self-defense isn’t outright illegal.
With the rather exciting interactions between the locals and the recently imported criminals, I wonder how long it would take for the Maquis to re-form and start going after the easy but culturally acceptable targets.
