Without them, this nutcase might have carried out a mass shooting or something.
To own a semi-automatic 9mm Glock pistol like the kind used in the Munich shootings, a citizen would have had to have been over 18, waited a year for his licence and undergone a psychological evaluation.
He owned it illegally, however. So, like, he’s in BIG trouble with the law now.
Der Deutsch-Iraner nutzte für seine Tat eine 9mm Glock-Pistole. Diese habe der 18-Jährige offenbar illegal besessen, da die Seriennummer der Waffe ausgefeilt war, sagte der Präsident des bayerischen Landeskriminalamts, Robert Heimberger. Eine Erlaubnis für die Waffe besaß der Täter nicht.
PS: We all know what the reaction would have been if this had taken place in Kansas City, folks: Stricter gun control laws would have prevented it. It’s all quite irrational, really.
