Title: Sweden leads the world in per capita hand grenade attacks
Post by: dead0man on January 16, 2019, 08:27:41 am
Apparently somebody brought a truck load of them in from the Balkans 15 years ago and handed them out to local criminal gangs who then proceeded to start tossing them at each other on the regular.  2015-2017 had 77 individual attacks (some involving more than one grenade)!  It slowed down some in 2018 with just 5 attacks so they're probably running out, which is good, obviously.

I just found it interesting and wanted to share.  Not a political point at all.

that's why gun control just doesn't work

Why isn't Serbia or Bosnia the #1 per grenade attacks (or other attacks) though? :O

There are so many guns, RPG'S, frags and even sometimes light artillery, but there doesn't seem to be many firearm-related deaths, and we definitely didn't run out of stock yet.

I mean, we did have that guy a couple years back who got caught by a stationary speed radar, and then went back to his house and got an RPG and took care of it, or someone shooting a light howitzer on a Wedding every few years, but that's about it... (And yes, I am serious: https://www.slavorum.org/war-on-surveillance-camera-bosnian-man-used-bazooka-on-police-camera/)

More profitable to sell the stock to criminals with a higher income I suppose.

I have been on the Sarajevo-Mostar highway. One of the most beautiful roads you will ever travel.

Bosnians are amazingly peaceful.

They did not invade Serbia or Croatia during the war. They simply struggled to defend themselves against the Chetniks. Russian-backed paramilitary warlords who watched too many Rambo films.

They were not interested in it one little bit.

Yeah, all these dozens of school kids murdered in non terrorist shootings... Oh wait, that's still an affliction unique to your country and virtually non-existent in the rest of the world that does have gun control.
