Finland files reservations about EU semi-automatic firearm ban

The European Union has proposed amending its Firearms Directive to limit online weapon acquisition and ban certain semi-automatic firearms from private use. Finland has registered its reservations about the move with the European Commission, saying that its reservists currently use semi-automatic weapons in their military exercises.

"Semi-automatic firearms ready themselves for discharge again immediately after firing, allowing the wielder to shoot as quickly as the trigger can be pressed until the weapon runs out of ammunition."

Not to put too fine a point on this commentary you dumbass, but a revolver does too.

Brilliant. The EU can't figure out that guns in the hands of an armed citizenry can be an important element of national against terrorism.

Not because this is anything less than obvious, but because stopping terrorism isn't their objective.

"Europe is trying to make it harder for weapons to end up in the hands of terrorists."

A bald-faced lie if there ever was one.

Might come in handy, should those Russians next door decide to wander around.
