Finland: Changes in firearms legislation sharply reduce demand for handguns

Posted: 08.07.12 04:00 PM

A new law took effect in June, placing strict conditions for handgun permits. Retailers say that sales of handguns have declined to less than a tenth of the previous level. The total number of new gun licences granted in the first half of this year has fallen by over 20 per cent from 2011. The main reason for the decline in approved gun licences was the smaller number of applications.
