Swedish Crime Is So Bad A Grenade Amnesty Was Called
The open borders nation of Sweden reported 78 incidents of hand grenade explosions since 2010, with over half reported in 2016. Seeking to curb the violence, the government is pushing an amnesty program to ‘turn in your grenades’. Between October 15th to January 11th, prudent criminals and migrants can take advantage of the generous offer.
This is not the first time government officials have asked citizens to surrender their weapons. Back in February, the first round of weapon amnesty was launched, police collected 12,000 illegal firearms that were mostly hunting rifles.
Earlier this year, a 63-year-old man was killed after picking up a grenade he mistook for another object, and a young boy lost his life in 2016 when gang members threw a grenade through his window.
In a leaked report from Swedish police, there are 23 Muslim-controlled "No-Go Zones" and some 60 "vulnerable areas" where non-muslim citizens of the country are advised to stay out.
The weapons appear to be surplus originating from the Balkans. The most common grenade used is the M75 and is small enough to fit in a large pocket.
