Another great article by Jake Addelstein. This article covers a grenade buy back program. Now, in the states to combat gang violence there have been gun buy backs, which have effectively taken guns of the street. Apparently grenades are a weapon of choice of the Kyushu Seido-kai. Grenades or as they are called by the Yaks Pineapples, have been a viable weapon since the 40’s for the clans. The police have put the handouts out, which say,” Grenades are meant to kill people.” The use of hand grenades have yet to be reported in Tokyo.
