Police Union Worried about Fake Weapons

The Police Union (ANPV) is worried about fake weapons of the Airsoft type. These air pressure weapons shoot small plastic balls and there is much demand for them in Belgium and Germany. They now also appear in the Netherlands. The ANPV said that these weapons cannot be quickly distinguished from real ones and is afraid that policemen may shoot at holders of them for this reason. Airsoft weapons are only sold to adults who can show a declaration of good behavior and are members of a shooting club. However, the weapons have no serial numbers and no one registers them after the original buyers sell them.
