Foolish me was rather surprised to find that even today Germans and Austrians still have a deeply rooted love/hate relationship to each other.

In addition, Austria is reportedly dealing with an influx in arm sales as a result of growing tensions over the refugee crisis.

According to the broadcaster OE24, approximately 70,000 more firearms have been sold in Austria so far this year compared to the same period last year. The report says that an estimated 900,000 firearms are in Austrian homes.

With a population of 8.5 million people, Austria is one of the most heavily armed countries in Europe.

"Nearly all shotguns are sold out because you don't need to have a firearms permit to buy them," Thomas Ortner, spokesman for gun retailers in the state of Upper Austria, told the paper. "Registration courses for pistols are usually held only every five weeks but are now held weekly."

Gun sales are up in Austria.

Self defense instruction too? Real self defense, none of that wrist twisting crap.

Tell them the same thing my health teacher told the girls in my class. Grab and twist until you feel at least two things pop. It wasn't the wrist.

i have a feeling that grabbing anything won't work very well when defending oneself, at least if you're weaker than the attacker.

It's a catch-all kind of flair. Also, I don't want to devalue his post.

In Sweden, the country’s immigration agency said it will discontinue publicizing the location of refugee housing facilities after more than 20 fires, many considered arsons.

Yeah that's not going to stop the fires, the locals will still all know where they are.
