worlddan: What puzzles me is that there is no one in Belguim worth an assassination.Prisoner One: "Hey, what YOU in here for?"Prisoner Two, boastfully: "I'm an assassin!"Prisoner One: "From where?"P2: "Belgium."P1: "Where's that?"P2: "Europe!"P1. "Oh, well who did you kill?P2 "&*%$!"P1: "Never heard of him."
ernst_k: It appears that the politician at least tried to grab the weapon arm (did he?) and then did a judo roll away!Am I the only one amazed by this?
RandomRandom: In other gun news, just 5 accidental shootings today at events celebrating "Gun Appreciation Day".Link
Gormanoglu: Gun used in the attack.If you want to kill a public servant, I recommend you buy American.
skaya: ""You hear the click- either the gun misfired, or the idiot forgot to chamber a round first. If that had been successful, that politician would be dead or seriously injured.""exactly.And in fact when it doesn't go off the assailant steps back to try to unjam the weapon, and then he's mobbed as is target stumbles away
RIP GAS PISTOLS
ciberido: worlddan: What puzzles me is that there is no one in Belguim worth an assassination.Are you kidding me? ANY Belgian is worth an assassination.
carnifex2005: [i.imgur.com image 850x609]That gun looks like a pea shooter.
syrynxx: One other article on the event said it was a "gas pistol" - like perhaps it shot tear gas pellets, not actual bullets?
