    It is a country that has very strict gun controls.

    it also has a unique geography and a tiny population, 330k. Most of which live around Reykjavik.

    It doesnt offer much of a useful comparison, although it does prove once again that strict gun controls = less gun violence.

    In practice it's not as strict as you might have read :)

    Have you been there?

    only a few adults killed today at a newspaper office.

    "A shooting at a local newspaper in Maryland has left five people dead and more injured, say officials.
    Police said there were multiple fatalities at the scene, and that a suspect was now in custody.
    The shooting occurred at the Capital Gazette newspaper building on Thursday afternoon.
    One reporter has said a gunman shot through a glass door to the office at "multiple employees"."

    Milo Yiannopoulos is advocating for lethal violence against reporters who contact him for comments on their stories.

    “I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight,” he texted the Observer‘s Davis Richardson, responding to an inquiry involving an article in progress on a Manhattan restaurant the right-winger is said to visit often.

    According to Yiannopoulos, that menacing remark is his “standard response to a request for comment.”

    Small arms ?? meaning pistols ect Not an expert on the caper but

    I think you will find there are . Pistols that are designed to be loaded like the old style flint lock / muskets ect

    Fella I know who belongs to a gun club , has 6 shot magnum pistol that is loaded with black powder type bullets ?? unless the law has changed in the last couple of years ??
