German Rifle Association

Self Assignment

I spent a day at German Rifle Association’s monthly Out of the Box Challenge. An event for people to get learn and get in touch with weapons. Inspired by the U.S. American weapon culture and politics, the GRA forms an interest group lobbying for liberal gun laws in Germany and Europe. 5,5 Million weapons are legally privately possessed in Germany for hunting and sportive use. Especially when it comes to terrorist attacks and amok runs and the accessibility and private gun ownerships is questioned the GRA gets active and argues against a restrictive gun policy in the private sector.
