Finland is one of the countries were death caused by Fire is almost the highest in Europe.

Three men dead after a shooting in Jyväskylä

Posted 1 Week Ago at 08:49 AM by Aleksis Kivi
Last Thursday, there has been a shooting in Jyväskylä which left three men dead. The shooting was caused after a family dispute.

From my point of view, this is another case where ease of access to weapons caused death.
