The Japanese people in general have never been allowed to own their own weapons legally.

How? I don't get it.
By coincidence they took her book and gave it the gun storage treatment.

Go watch A Better Tomorrow.
The idea is that sometime before a hit on someone in a library, a book is carved out and a gun placed inside. The hitman then retrieves the gun, shoots the fucker and gets out.
