Israel is easing its gun laws following the unprecedented and bloody attack by the Palestinian group Hamas over the weekend, officials announced on Oct. 8.

Israeli Minister of National Security Itamar Ben-Gvir said in a statement on X, formerly Twitter, that he has directed the Firearms Licensing Division, which is responsible for issuing gun licenses, to undergo an “emergency operation” and broaden gun license standards in the country to “allow as many citizens as possible to arm themselves.”

The emergency operation would go into effect within 24 hours, he said in Sunday’s statement.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), there is no clear right to carry a gun in Israel and nothing similar to the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution exists.
