That's punny.

No stimulus (yet), money keeps coming in thank Gud. Groceries are a lot cheaper than eating out. So is drinking at home. No dry-cleaning, housekeeper or (new) clothing. Pornhub premium is free. Figure I'll lose most of what I save either to taxes or on the stock market ;-)

Firearm possesion is a bit different over here.


What are gun laws like in Belgium?

Default legislation is inverse of your second Amendment: weapons in general are prohibited. There have been reforms with little to no push-back after a spree killing in 2006 and subsequent amnesty periods the past 15 or so years.

In short, Joe/Jane Q Public has two possible exceptions to this specifically in regards to firearms: hunting (35% in the more rural parts with the majority of license holders, mostly shotguns) and sport shooting purposes (pistols, rifles).
Both require some legal hoops to be jumped through ("permit" requires lessons, medical fitness and lack of criminal convictions/record) and are temporary (requiring actually hunting resp regular practice/being in a gun club, 5 year validity).

Further (niche) exceptions exist for collectors, re-enactors and for historic purposes (black powder).
