Denmark has some of the most stringent gun controls in the world, yet numerous people were shot and some killed Sunday at the Field’s shopping mall in Copenhagen.
Danish police confirmed multiple people were shot at the mall and that “several” have been killed, Breitbart News reported.
Police inspector Søren Thomassen said, “We know that there are several dead…[and] several injured,” according to the Associated Press.
The University of Sydney’s GunPolicy.org categorizes Denmark’s gun control as “restrictive,” and they note that “the right to gun ownership is not guaranteed by law.”
Moreover, Denmark requires would-be gun owners to first get a license from the government. Only licensed individuals may own or transfer a gun and ammunition. Also, even with a license individuals can only purchase ammunition that matches the firearm(s) they own.
