Cops take hundreds of guns in international crackdown

Shotgun shells

Hundreds of guns and tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition have been confiscated in a multi-national sweep, according to a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

An operation called “Trigger II” was launched recently across Europe, resulting in 149 arrests and the confiscation of a multitude of weapons, including a rocket launcher and hand grenades.

While Americans have the right to possess weapons within limits – hand grenades and rocket launchers aren’t allowed – residents of Europe live without such Second Amendment protections.

That makes it rare for a citizen to have a firearm.

A report from the international police coalition INTERPOL confirms that the sweep was carried out by a massive force of 7,840 police officers across 23 countries.

All of the raids and arrests took a total of 48 hours.

“Some 320 firearms – including a rocket launcher and a machine gun – and almost 20,000 pieces of ammunition were recovered, along with grenades and explosives,” the police coalition reported. “More than 10 million checks were conducted against … global databases during the operation, including for wanted persons, stolen and lost travel documents, and stolen motor vehicles.”
