Nothing in the directive is yet settled, and even the trilogue is still formally ongoing before the parliament approves the current ”compromise”. Malta is in key position, because they are taking over EU presidency for the next six months and one of the more challenging areas is the new firearms directive proposal, so the conference was an excellent event, where the message from the shooters was sent to the authorities – loud and clear.
Several Finnish organizations wrote a joint statement to Ms. Vicky Ford and the rapporteurs regarding the firearms directive. You can find the statement from here: <LINK, Click here>
