So today, the European Union does everything it can to stop more than 99 percent of the Syrian refugees to apply for the asylum that they are legally entitled to in EU countries.(所以現在,歐盟盡其所能地阻止超過百分之九十九的敘利亞難民,阻止難民們申請他們在歐盟國家內有合法權利申請的庇護權。)

As of March last year, 734,336 people were entitled to possess and use shotguns or rifles under the legal system …(去年三月,734,336 人在法律體制之下有權持有或使用獵槍或來福槍。)
