Gun ownership in Finland is among the highest in the world, but crime rates are low.
Today Finland is questioning both its gun laws and its policing of the internet.
'The Web cannot be held responsible for this, but you can certainly ask how much the Web feeds the dark side of human nature,' the paper said in an editorial.
There is no "but." Crime rates are low BECAUSE there are so many guns in the hands of law abiding citizens. Switzerland is the same way. Studies in the United States confirm the same thing here.
Only organized crime and dictators want to take guns away from the ordinary people.
As for the shooting in Finland, rather than blame the guns and punish the entire population for the crimes of one man, dare we ask how this guy could show symptoms of mental problems for 6 years and nobody thought to intervene?
