Within the last hour Associated Press has reported through dozens of media outlets that at least 3 people are dead as a result of a shooting spree at a southwestern farm in Finland.
The tragic news comes during a time that the country is aggressively seeking to tighten their control of firearms, especially hand weapons. Just this past Wednesday the Finnish parliament successfully voted to approve a newly amended Gun Control Act.
And what amendments will be demanded to stop this one? And then what happens when that fails to stop the mass shooters? You can see where this is going, because it’s where things have gone in many other countries. The Port Authur massacre lost Australians the right to semi-automatic rifles. Dunblane lost pistols for the British. School shootings in Germany lead to stricter rules there. Mass shootings have been a boon to the International Gun Control movement, so it’s no shocker the groups here do their level best to exploit them politically, despite ample evidence strong gun laws do not stop mass shootings.
