How (Not) to Get a Gun: Ep.19
Hosted by Carrie Keller-Lynn and Aliza Landes
While the image of teenage IDF soldiers toting M-16s is ubiquitous, can those same soldiers obtain a private weapon post-service? Do Israelis see private gun ownership as a right? And why can't our IDF-veteran hosts get a handgun license?
Carrie and Aliza talk with Nadav Kalmar, a professional shooting instructor and two-decade veteran of the nation's security establishment. They speak about Israeli attitudes toward and culture around firearms, and how they are reflected in private gun ownership policy.
