Grenade violence is on the rise in Sweden. One might even say that they have a problem with grenades “on the streets”. What is a good socialist country like Sweden supposed to do? Here are Student of the Gun, we don’t just point out problems, we offer excuses.

For this week’s Brownell’s Bullet Points, Guns and Gear segment we will consider the stabilizing braces available for the Mossberg and Remington shotguns. You might be surprised at the number of different option that are available.

Do you really need a holster, even when you have pockets? During our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we will examine an incident where one Ohio man saved a few dollars by not buying a holster and it cost him thousands.

From www.limaohio.com:

A Lima man whose handgun accidentally discharged during a meeting of basketball referees at Bath High School late last year pleaded guilty Monday to a fifth-degree felony.

The felony charge ? illegal conveyance or possession of a deadly weapon or dangerous ordnance in a school safety zone ? against Garry L. Tabler Jr. will be dismissed in its entirety, however, upon Tabler’s successful completion of a 12-month diversion program.

Tabler, 49, formally agreed during his court appearance Monday to accept an offer from the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office whereby he would plead guilty to the felony charge in exchange for his participation in the county-operated diversion program.

Sweden third largest city, Malmö, has built a reputation as the country’s Chicago. But it’s not just gun violence that’s blighted the port city. It’s borne the brunt of the hand-grenade attacks that have been on the rise in Sweden in the last couple of years: the number of grenade attacks jumped from eight in 2014 to 52 in 2016.

Number of grenade attacks in Sweden

2014 —- 8

2015 ——————– 48

2016 —————————-52

In most of them nobody was hurt, but an eight-year-old British boy, Yuusuf Warsame, was killed after a grenade was thrown into a flat in Gothenburg. He was the only death from a grenade attack since 2014, according to the Swedish Police Authority. There have been two injuries in that time period. Prime minister Stefan Löfven dubbed the summer of 2015 “the summer of unrest.”

From www.nytimes.com:

In the Stockholm suburb of Varby Gard, it was not unusual to see the figure of a 63-year-old man pedaling a bicycle home after the end of his shift as an aide for disabled adults, hunched against the icy wind of a Swedish winter.

Daniel Cuevas Zuniga had just finished a night shift on a Sunday last month, and was cycling home with his wife, when he spotted a spherical object lying on the ground, stopped and reached down to take it in his hand.

It was an M-75 hand grenade. Manufactured in great numbers for the Yugoslav national army, and then seized by paramilitaries during the civil war in the 1990s, the grenades are packed with plastic explosives and 3,000 steel balls, well suited for attacks on enemy trenches and bunkers. When Mr. Zuniga touched it, he set off the detonator.
