The Swedish Attorney committee have pushed for 7 new gun laws that are a big win for any Swedish firearms owner. The Attorney committee have now put pressure on the Parliament to vote on 7 new laws regarding firearms, and voted they have. The Swedish right wing with the support of some center parties voted for these new laws last tuesday and being the majority they won. ​ ​ First of all a "quick" overview of OLD swedish gun laws: The fastest and easiest way to own i firearm in sweden is to get a hunting license, to do this you have to take a short course over a few days or stretched out over 2-3 weeks then you do a theoretical test, a weapon safety handling test, a ranging test and finally a shooting test with shotguns shooting at clay, rifle on moose and rifle precision with a 22. After all that you are free to purchase most bolt actions and certain semi auto hunting rifles (No military style like ar15 or any semi auto designed for military purpose and no semi auto in 223 or similar callibre) You can own 6 hunting rifles though after the first 4 you need to motivate the other 2, which is usually not too difficult. ​ To own handguns you first need to join a shooting club that shoots pistol, there are actually plenty of these clubs here (in my county there are more then 5 that i know of) After you join the club your first objective is to shoot 3 silver scores or series after wich you can take a short course for a "green card" which is a quick safety course, you also shoot a fast 5 shot series at a larger than average target and all shots need to connect to get approved. Then you have to shoot 3 gold series, which is the real challenge. 1 series is 5 shots at 25m at one off THEESE which are 60x60 cm to shoot gold you have to get atleast 46 points and the 10 pointer is only 5cm in diameter. Anyway after youve been a member of the club for 1 year and shot gold and everything you finally can buy a handgun, or how many as you would like (almost) granted they are not of the same callibre (or so ive been told, im new to shooting handguns) ​ To own an AR15 or any semi auto "military" rifle you need to be an ipsc shooter, and to become one you have to take a course in ipsc, do a test and qualify. then 1 year after you joined the club and completed all the requirements you can purchase your own ar15, scar16 or whatever. Im not so sure about all the laws here since i havent started with ipsc yet. ​ ​ So what are these new laws? well after all that build up it must be something epic right?.... right? well kinda. The new law(S) states that: silencers will be free of licenses which would mean anyone can now buy them and not have to wait 2 months for a license. And this could mean that silencers for 22lr might be able for anyone and not just only special hunters who have contracts with cities to clear pests. The max limit of guns a hunter can own will be increased and possibly even removed in the future. The five year licenses on handguns will be removed, which removes unnecessary bureaucracy. We will now have a "gun passport" which makes it easier to travel within the EU to hunt or whatever. And finally THE EUROPEAN FIREARMS DIRECTIVE WILL BE REVOKED!!! Now, all these laws WILL pass, they just havent yet. The current ruling goverment is a socialist left wing cesspool and will surely take their sweet time in passing these new laws, though they have pressure from the Attorney committee and the rest of the Parliament too pass the laws quickly.
