Good Thing Germans Have Strict Gun Control Laws

Otherwise a whole lot more people might have gotten killed here.


A man shot and killed two people in the southern German region of Bavaria on Friday, and fired at two others before being apprehended by authorities, police said.

The man, whose identity has not been released, shot a woman at about 6:30 a.m. from his locally-registered Mercedes in the town of Tiefenthal, near Ansbach, police said in a statement.

The woman died at the scene and the man fled in his car, then fatally shooting a man on a bicycle in the nearby town of Rammersdorf, according to police.

The suspect also shot at a pedestrian and the driver of another vehicle, but hit neither, police said.

Der Tatverdächtige war “ein ganz normaler Ansbacher.”

  1. I appreciate the fact that it takes times to separate the sublime humor from the irony and the facts in this story. Facetious treatment of incidents like this won’t effect change – it will be interesting to contrast this with near neighbor Switzerland’s gun laws. Twice in 6 years does not appear to be a trend. Humans will use whatever is available when the intent is to harm. Had it not been sport guns it would have been acid or arrows or whatever. Sad nonetheless…………………

  2. Here’s the next one:

    That’s my point, of course. If you want to use pressure cookers to kill innocent people, you can. But my main interest here is the German Outrage Industry that shuts down whenever these inconvenient truths take place here in Germany. Shootings in the United States? Now that’s a completely different ballgame.
