EU pressuring Finland on its gun laws
The BBC reports the Euro Parliament has voted to raise the age for buying guns to 18, to tighten registration, and to outlaw blank firing guns that can be coverted to fire regular ammo.
Here's Deutsche Welle's report.
This brings us one step closer to losing our Second Amendment to "Customary International Law." While all the Second Amendment proponents are on the bandwagon for Heller at the U.S. Supreme Court it is this myopic internal fight that blinds the America people to the collateral threat posed against the Second Amendment by the growing anti-gun standard becoming the Customary International Law. The only way to fight this attack is threw the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. Hence my case at that Commission, Petition No. 1142-06. Does anyone care to notify Wayne LaPierre of this "Golden Goose" of a Second Amendment case at the international level? Or does Wayne LaPierre intend to kill this Golden Goose and keep the fabled golden egg for myself?

Yep, can't have the proles knowing how to use a gun. Might start getting uppity when their betters tell them to bend over.
