An Italian news agency, ANSA, is reporting that a shipment of 800 rifles has been stopped and confiscated in Trieste. The article described the haul as being "Winchester SXP rifles". The shipment was on a Dutch truck with a Turkish driver. Oooo, scary. The tipoff was the accompanying picture
So some capitalist in Northern Europe is trying to take advantage of a sudden sellers market in the only guns the public is allowed to own, and the Italian cops caught him at it. The big beef seemed to be that all the paperwork had not been submitted. You would think that any reputable importer of firearms in Europe would know to provide the truck driver with a couple of envelopes filled with expediting paperwork of appropriate denominations to handle situations like this, but I guess you just can't get good help any more anywhere.
