New Gun Law proposal to allow house searches in Finland

finnish parliament jarrettFinland’s parliament is proposing a new gun law that would grant police the right to search and inspect people’s homes without a search warrant, Finnish news source Sunnuntaisuomalainen reported. The gun law proposal would let police search private property and homes without suspecting any crime. The gun law will also restrict licenses to members of shooting clubs.

There are over 670,000 people in Finland who hold a gun licence, which is about 12 percent of the entire nation’s population. Most gun owners claim this law is unconstitutional according to Sunnuntaisuomalainen. The bill is expected to be debated in the Finnish parliament during the autumn.
