What This Country Needs Are Stricter Crossbow Control Laws

And knives need to be better regulated too. And bats and clubs and other big chunks of wood. And rocks.

Woman seriously wounded in German school shooting, say police – Bremerhaven pupils barricade themselves in classrooms during attack by man reportedly armed with a crossbow.

Stricter Lego Gun Control Needed

In Germany.

And bow-and-arrow control too, while you’re at it. How about better crazy control? Could we try that for once?

A teenager triggered a large scale police operation after a restaurant owner mistook a toy gun he was carrying for a real weapon.

A witness raised the alarm after seeing the 15 year old, who was wearing a camouflage outfit and holding what appeared to be a rifle, running up and down the street in the southern German town of Lindau.

“Of course, we had to go immediately,” an officer from Lindau police told Lindauer Zeitung.

Shadowy

And highly unprofitable for Heckler & Koch & Co.

The Shadowy, Homemade Weapons Community Just Keeps on Growing – The right-wing extremist attacker from Halle had numerous homemade weapons with him on his shooting spree. But their quality was poor. Others, though, are perfecting the reliability of 3D-printed weapons – and have moved on to rocket launchers.

Germans Still Waiting For More Effective Knife Control Legislation

German authorities are still puzzled by the mysterious deaths of three women who were killed in a knife attack.

They do know that “someone with a migrant background” and his knife were involved in the killings but because neither this someone with a migrant background nor his religion with a migrant background can be held responsible for such unpleasant realities they are now focussing in on the knife itself. “What is needed is more effectiv knife control legislation,” is most likely what German politicians are about to announce.

Germany: Würzburg holds vigil for knife attack victims – At an emotional memorial service, Würzburg mourned the deaths of three women who were killed in a knife attack. With the motive still unclear, officials urged against responding to the attack with “hate and revenge.”

But How Is This Possible?

Germany has some of the strictest gun control laws in the world. And if you manage to get a gun illegally, shooting people is also highly illegal here.

It just doesn’t make any sense. I know! Make the German gun control and shooting people laws even more illegal! Let’s see which political party is the first to demand this, shall we?

German police are searching for a gunman who shot and killed a man and a woman in Espelkamp, a small northern town near the city of Bielefeld.

Police have not hinted at any motive for the shooting, but they say there is no threat to the public…

The popular German tabloid Bild, quoting unnamed sources, says police are now negotiating with the gunman to get him to surrender.

More Of Germany’s Ever Stricter Gun Control Laws In Action

Sheesh. It’s almost as if only criminals and crazy people have guns in Germany these days. And one or two cops.

Germany: Man shoots woman then himself in court. Like, duh. How’s he going to shoot himself first and then the woman?

A man shot a woman and then himself on the grounds of a district court in northern Germany. The incident is under investigation…

“Attention, we have a police situation on Mühlenstraße. We are on site. Please refrain from asking questions for the time being.”

Germans Have Some Of The Strictest Gun Control Laws In The World

Thank goodness, right? Otherwise any wack job could manage to get a gun and go around murdering innocent, unarmed people.

Hanau

This guy was also rambling on about secret underground military bases in US-Amerika where small children are being systematically tortured. See who we’re dealing with here? Or who got dealt with, I should say?

German authorities are starting to piece together exactly what happened in Hanau, when a gunman opened fire on two shisha bars.

At least nine people died in the attack which federal prosecutors are treating as an act of terrorism.

Turkish authorities say a number of those killed were of Turkish origin. Chancellor Angela Merkel said there are signs the shooter had racist motives.

Generalbundesanwalt spricht von „zutiefst rassistischer Gesinnung.”

It’s A Good Thing Germany Has Such Strict Gun Control Laws

Otherwise the death toll at this shooting would have been a whole lot higher. I assume.

Guns

The shooter did have a gun license, after all.

6 dead, 2 injured after family shooting in Germany, police say – Police were called to the scene of the shooting, in a building near the town’s main railway station, shortly after midday Friday. Some victims were shot inside the train station, while others were shot in a nearby house, local police told ABC News.

The alleged gunman, a 26-year-old man who police said had a gun license, was arrested shortly after the shooting.

Germany Has Some Of The Strictest Gun Control Laws In The World

And they are designed to keep the crazy criminal types here from harming the unarmed innocents around them.

Halle

Streaming live from a camera mounted on his helmet, a gunman pushed on the doors of a synagogue, fired several shots at a lock on the door, stuck an explosive in a door jam and lit it.

But he couldn’t get in.

The fact that the door held likely spared the lives of the dozens of people inside the synagogue on Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar.

Police say the gunman killed two people Wednesday in the eastern German town of Halle — one directly outside the synagogue, and one at a nearby kebab shop. Police have arrested the suspected gunman.

Doubled Since 2014?

What could have brought that about?

Guns

More Germans applying for alarm gun licenses – More and more Germans are acquiring the permit they need to carry a gas pistol, a newspaper has reported. The number has more than doubled in the last five years.

The so-called Kleiner Waffenschein (“small weapons permit”) is relatively easy to acquire in Germany: they are usually available to anyone over 18 with no previous serious criminal convictions, and who is considered “physically and mentally fit.”

“At least since the events at the Cologne cathedral square on New Year’s Eve in 2015 people apparently feel more and more unsafe.”
