Dutch Vacationers Bring Home Imitation Machine Guns

There is a great increase in the number of vacationers who bring home imitation weapons which cannot be distinguished from real ones. Importing these is a crime in the Netherlands. By the beginning of July this year nearly as many of these imitation weapons – 892 – were confiscated at Amsterdam airport as in all of last year. Imitation pistols, shotguns and even fully automated machine guns can be purchased freely in a number of Mediterranean countries.
