Tuomioja says there is no need to keep weapons at home, adding that weapons obtained for hobby purposes, like hunting and shooting, can be stored on the premises of monitored clubs.

He notes that such hobbies do not require automatic weapons or repeating firearms.

According to the minister, the gun law reform that came into force in June was a step in the right direction, but there is still a way to go.
