In Germany. In Berlin, as a matter of fact. This time without guns.
A suspect has pleaded not guilty to the beating death of a young man at Berlin’s central Alexanderplatz train station last October – along with five other men who allegedly helped him – as the victim tried to help a friend who was being attacked.
Criminals are criminals and they don’t need guns (or at least not legally obtained ones) to kill or hurt people like this. And I wouldn’t have even mentioned this with the guns if I hadn’t have seen this article today, reminding me of a recent post about gun control:
As for where crime guns came from, the study notes that less than two percent of convicted inmates reported buying their weapons at gun shows or flea markets. The highest number, 40 percent, said the guns came from a family member or a friend. About 37 percent said the weapons were stolen or obtained from an illegal source. The rest say the guns were bought at a retail store or pawn shop.
