A law just passed in Germany, that forbids any private individuals to own armor.

Craziness.

What? Are we talking contemporary body armor, trauma plates, and such as that? Or this type of armor?

Sorry, don’t know why the pic is sideways. Can’t seem to fix it. But you get the point.

The law was supposedly passed yesterday.

I work with one of the largest collector in Germany...he informed me of this new law this morning. Not sure how public it is at this time.

The info came from the largest collector in Germany...and was confirmed by the guys at PanzerFarm in Poland (who work in Germany and Poland). I trust both of my contacts.

I doubt it and with no proof worthless as usually.
Similar discussion over a year ago with forbidding collecting ... and now again and false.

With and in current time I can tell you the German partys discuss other matters that are going on.

sounds like false Propaganda, nothing else and nothing new.

Just to be clear, your post is a false Information.
There was NO law in Germany established.

Mods should delete such posts.

This information was provided by the Hoebigs - the owners of the Trun scrapyard in France. Info given to them supposedly by the BAFA and KWKG.

Maybe they got advance notice...who knows. I can only tell you that this info came directly from the Hoebigs.

There is also no advance notice for a new law, and KWKG is a laugh when you talk about a new law.

Not sure what knolwedge you have how a new law gets worked out.

Ah propably they have a magic glass bowl ...
