Migrants Drive Economy: Germans apply for more ‘small weapon’ licences in the first 3 months of 2016 than all of 2015

Applications for non-lethal weapons licences in the German state of Bavaria is rising at an alarming rate, the latest figures show.

The number of applications for ‘small weapon’ licenses in the first three months of 2016, is already double that of the whole of 2015, in the southeastern state.

Local media reports that the spike in applications for licenses is connected to the huge influx of migrants and refugees in Germany in recent years.
