Murder in Munich

Gunman in Munich Kills 9, Then Himself, the Police Say - The New York Times:

MUNICH — A gunman opened fire outside a shopping mall in Munich late on Friday afternoon, killing nine people, wounding 21 and sending Germany’s third-largest city into lockdown as the police scrambled to find what they initially thought were as many as three assailants. By early Saturday, the authorities said the attack was probably the work of a single gunman, an 18-year-old German of Iranian descent who they said held both German and Iranian citizenship. The body of the presumed gunman, whose name was not immediately made public, was found less than a mile from the mall with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, officials said.
And what about this report is surprising?

It is formulaic( to coin a phrase) and not significantly different from other Murderous European Events.

The only thing which would make this report "newsworthy" would be if there was an armed person present who would take action to stop the carnage .. instead of a (ho hum) just another time when some jerk-off  decides to invade a NO GUNS ALLOWED public forum for the sole purpose of demonstrating that if guns are not legally allowed there, people with guns and with an intend to perform mayhem will TARGET THOSE VENUES!

Frankly, I'm only amazed that the Europeans haven't figured out that a NO GUN ZONE is an asshole-magnet.

Well, that might be implying that Europeans are ... no, I won't go there.

But you may.

European governments (Switzerland is the exception) have a long long history of keeping firearms out of the hands of the peasants and petty merchant class. I doubt if they are going to change anytime soon.

Update: After Munich, German politicians vow to tighten up anti-gun laws and make it more difficult to legally posses a firearm.
