[The Firearms Amnesty legislation was approved by the Parliament at the end of 2003 and it came into force on 1 January 2004. The purpose of the legislation is to decrease the number of illegal and unregistered weapons in Finland. Since the legislation entered into force, it has been possible to surrender illegal small arms, ammunition and explosives to the police without any legal consequences if they have not been used in a criminal act. The total number of firearms surrendered was approximately 4 000 during the year 2006.]
