Issue questions: Carrying in Israel
Firstly, I want to say that wow this site has exploded since I was here last. It's great see!
Now, on to my question(s). I've recently moved to Israel and I'd like to bring one of my firearms (handgun) here (which I know I need an import permit). I know what the laws say regarding who can be issued a permit and I do NOT meet all of them, however I've heard from multiple people that they sometimes will waive these laws.
1. How likely is it they will waive the following:
a. <3 years residency (am a citizen though)
b. no specific "need", under the categories listed at least.
2. If I go to work for a security company, will they allow me a firearm at this point?
Thanks for any advice!
