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.
That means mouth and nose protection. You know, a face mask?
They keep you safe. Unless you’re a gas station employee asking a customer to put one on. Then they can be dangerous, deadly even. Remember the days when gas station employees were endangered by people who were already wearing the face masks when they came in?
Germany: Gas station employee killed over a face mask – A 20-year-old clerk was shot after asking a customer to wear a face mask in Germany. The suspected shooter said he was stressed out by coronavirus measures.
Germany violated arms export regulations for decades, study says – Germany has authorized and exported weapons and military equipment to be used in countries with human rights violations and ravaged by war. Wars, including the Yemen conflict, have been “fought with German weapons.”
Thank goodness, right? Otherwise any wack job could manage to get a gun and go around murdering innocent, unarmed people.
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.”
Otherwise the death toll at this shooting would have been a whole lot higher. I assume.
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.
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.”
And here the Germans are always accousing Americans of having way too lax gun regulations. Sheesh.
A court in Munich has refused a hunter’s legal claim to get his gun license back and be allowed to carry weapons. A loaded gun left inside his car two years ago was the start of his problems.
In November 2016, a German hunter was at a game reserve northeast of Dresden and talking to a passerby when his dog accidentally set off his gun from inside the car. The hunter was wounded in the arm. As a result, the hunter lost both his weapons’ license and his hunting permit, which authorities have refused to extend.
At least that’s what the German police are telling German citizens these days. So maybe that’s why there was a 9.6 percent increase last year in the number of Germans licensed to carry – gas pistols.
That must be the reason why. Although “insecurity” was mentioned several times in this article not a word was lost anywhere on where this insecurity in Germany is coming from. It’s tacitly understood, of course. It would be, I dunno, rude to actually mention it. Like I often say about this country, things are complicated here. Simply complicated.
Police representatives suggest the increase illustrates a latent sense of insecurity among citizens. However, Left Party domestic policy expert Ulla Jelpke said the increase was “a result of the panic created by law and order politicians like Interior Minister Horst Seehofer and right-wing agitators like the AfD [Alternative for Germany].”
