Years ago, I met an Israeli studying here in the US, and knowing a little about their requirements for military service, I asked him what if was like to encounter so many people carrying weapons. His reply was that since he grew up in it, you really didn't notice it. He followed up his reply by saying that there was virtually no crime since if you tried to rob a convenience store, odds were good that the clerk had a gun, and half the shoppers had guns. Also, I remember when a Palestinian commandeered a bulldozer and went on a rampage, he was taken out by Israeli citizens.
