Sweden Begins Hand Grenade Amnesty

It’s war and the Swedes think the invaders are going to give up their explosives?

Grenade attacks are part of the escalating war in Europe. I have been reporting on these “grenade attacks” — acts of war — for years, but the media believes that if they don’t report on it, it didn’t happen, and apparently so does the Swedish government.

Breitbart, October 16, 2018:

The weapons amnesty is set to take place between October 15th to January 11th of next year and is aimed at getting grenades and other explosives off the streets where they are being used by organised criminal gangs, broadcaster SVT reports.

The weapons amnesty is not the first in Swedish history, but it is different than previous attempts in that those with explosives are not encouraged to bring them to police stations but call for qualified explosives disposal officers who will then assess whether or not a bomb squad needs to be deployed to the area.

Bengt Grönlund, project manager of the amnesty, said: “We all want a safer and safer society. Amnesty is a way we hope to help reduce the incidence of, for example, hand grenades in criminal environments.”

Grenade attacks and other crimes involving explosives in Sweden have increased over the last several years with hand grenades becoming a popular weapon for organised criminal gangs.

According to police officer Gunnar Appelgren, the coordinator of the Stockholm police force’s gang conflict programme, grenades are relatively easy to procure.

A report released earlier this year by the National Forensic Centre (NFC) noted that hand grenades had been used a total of 43 times across the country last year by criminals.

While some attacks have been among rival criminal gangs, Swedish police have also been targets. Last year in Helsingborg, a police station was bombed causing widespread outrage with former Prime Minister Stefan Löfven labelling it an attack on democracy.
