I have no idea how this makes any sense at all. 13.gif It was just posted on our local news so I'll translate it myself:

Quote:Finnish police gets access to the American Gun Registry. With the aid of the registry the police can, among other things, track illegal weapons.

The registry has information on tens of millions of weapons. The registry lists weapons made or sold in the US.
Under this agreement Finnish police can freely use this registry.

What the hell is the purpose of this and what did Finland agree to to have free access to this so called registry?

Umm... how can a gun registry track illegal weapons? Wouldn't they be legal if they were registered?

I can't make sense of it either. Why?

What am I missing here? hmm.gif As Jed once aptly put it, this is as useful as a trapdoor in a fishing boat.

Says the ATF got similar deals with 32 different countries' police.

The way I see it is that they use the US gun registry to check to see if the firearm is registered there, if not, then they will deem it to be illegal. I guess.
