Supermarket, department store - it's still strange to most Non-Americans.

In Germany, if you want to buy a gun, you have to go to a dedicated gun shop. There you must of course prove that you are licensed to own a gun. You are licensed by the gouvernment, and only if you can prove a need (basicall, you're a licensed hunter or a sport shooter; professionals using weapons - police, security - will get the gun through their employer).

You are than only allowed to carry the gun between your house and the shooting range or the area where you go for hunting. The gun has to be un-armed and secured during transport.

Dropping into a department store and buying an assault rifle and lots of ammunition just for the heck of it is a very foreign concept to me.
