DO NOT CENSOR thisEdit
This absolutely belongs in the second paragraph of the Introduction,

The legal definitions section is growing, and I think, becoming rather WP:UNDUE in size. This article is not "List of definitions of firearms". Surely we don't need a full definition from every country, just a general definition, and how some countries vary from that. (Hohum @) 15:50, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
- One way to do that could be to remove the US definition which does contain useless poorly sourced details and to remove the definition for South-Africa, small country ranked 24th for area and population. The fact that the term firearm is defined by a local law, could be kept anyway.
- Definitions from international treaties might be those which give the most international meaning.
- Other definitions are interesting ones because they provide pieces of information about what should be considered or not considered as a firearm, giving variations of what can be or cannot be considered as a firearm. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 14:25, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
