[Translated summary: Sweden's 9.7 million inhabitants have barely two million licenced weapons. The National police and SCB's new statistics for the first half of this year have been released. The number of weapons has been divided among the country's seven new police regions and the vast majority of weapons are hunting weapons. There are licenses for 900,000 rifles and 640,000 shotguns in the country. In the case of licence holders, they are more than 560 000 in Sweden, meaning that each gun licence holder has an average of 3 and a half weapons.]
