Newly released figures show that the number of people who applied for small weapons licenses in Bavaria over the first three months of 2016 is already double the number for the whole of 2015.
Broken down over the last three years, the figures are even more shocking. In 2014, 2,379 Bavarians applied for the license. This number doubled to 5,748 in 2015. However, the number already reached well over 10,000 just up to and including March.
