It should be noted that I'm not exactly an authority on this, so I may be wrong on any of those points.

In Finland acquiring firearms, including handguns, isn't hard. Most owners however know to handle them because most of us are reservists.
(Oh I guess I see where the problems come from, 50% average voter turnout, yeah happens when you get to vote 4-6 times a year <.< outside of election year)
Well, still the a flower anyway, without being vikings!

Satw illustrates perfectly how little Danes are used to hunting and guns.

You have an entire industry based around consulting foreign governments on "How to be awesome like us" (My words, not theirs)... and your government publishes their statistics and reports in English.
It's like that dude who doesn't want to talk about how much money he earns but will totally talk about all the exotic locations he's visited and how much he hates being forced to drive the Ferrari around town because of its shitty gas mileage.
The faults, however, are seldom voiced. Left leaning Americans are usually shocked to find out that Scandinavians are pretty damn racist compared to the US for example.
Why wouldn't we? Many people globally trade with our countries, and most of them do not understand our native languages. There's no reason not to do the translating work for them. Just like pretty much every European nation does, and many "exotic" nations.Originally Posted by Laize

I looked it up. Hunting rifles only require a hunting permit which lasts a year. Other kinds of guns require a weapons permit which must be renewed every 10 years. So if it runs out you have to get rid of the weapons - theoretically. Dont know if that is actually done.
Ok, thanks for the info, was just wondering in case I ever moved to one of the countries. (I go back and forth on wanting to leave the U.S., just depends on my mood/recent events, still a minor though, which means I'm still living with parents so I haven't really been truly exposed to how things work in the U.S., just read about them).

Sorry to derail the thread a little.
