ANOTHER MASSACRE in gun-free Europe.
UPDATE: Reader Eric Brandel says that Finland is less gun-free than most of Europe: “Due to their history of having been attacked by, and successfully defending against, both the Germans and Russians in WWII (something they are very proud of), the Finns have been a little more reluctant to give up their firearms than the rest of Europe. In fact, obtaining firearms in Finland is easier than it is in some places in the US. Personal firearms of all types are legal, and obtainable, assuming you do not have a history of mental illness or committed a serious crime. The biggest difference between their laws and ours is that you must be licensed to own guns, and then have a license for each gun you own.”
