Hundreds of Germans have bought weapons and ammunition illegally from an online store called "Migrants fright," and had the weaponry delivered by DHL, reports ABC Nyheter.
People who are opposed to the German immigration policy had created the online store "Migrantenschreck," where they sold weapons illegally to both Germans and others.
"Do you want your town to become a lawless arena for asylum seekers? Think you need to protect your women?"
It was some of the text of the ad for a double-barreled shotgun and ammunition, which a doctor in Brandenburg, Germany, on the evening of October 5, 2016 ordered from the Hungarian site "Migrantenschreck" (Migrants fright).
A few weeks after he placed the order, he received a package delivered by DHL to his door.
The package contained weapons and ammunition for the 600 euros he had paid.
Earlier this year he got an unpleasant visit by two journalists. The technology website Motherboard and the newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung had somehow gained access to the customer list and the orders to the shop, which in the meantime had been taken off the net.
On Thursday the two media outlets came out with the story of how the doctor and hundreds of others were convinced by the site that they had to arm themselves against migrants and asylum seekers, and how they had committed the crime.
The men behind the shop claim that the business was legal in Hungary, and that the weapons came from the factory Keserü Művek in Budapest.
On its website, the factory states that everything they produce is legal in Hungary, but do note that customers in other countries must adhere to the laws of their country.
This is where the Germans have broken the law, as weapons must be registered with the authorities. That people make illegal use of EU's own free flow of goods and merchandise policies within the Union, not so surprising, however.
