Typical libs/dems grabbing guns out of the hands of responsible gun owners.

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."

Bulgaria, dude.

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?

Reminds me of when Dubya managed to dodge that shoe the guy threw at his head. That was the most impressive thing he did in his presidency, IMO.

RandomRandom: In other gun news, just 5 accidental shootings today at events celebrating "Gun Appreciation Day".

Obviously Democratic plants sent there to stage the whole thing and discredit responsible gun owners, furthering Farbama's gun-grabbing agenda.

Gun used in the attack.

If you want to kill a public servant, I recommend you buy American.

If everyone in the auditorium had a firearm they could have subdued the criminal.

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.""


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

this sounds like your first date no?

That gun looks like a pea shooter.

It looked very poorly staged like a PR stunt to me... right up until a bunch of guys laid into the gunman with a bunch of very real, harmful kicks and punches. But maybe they weren't in on the act.

syrynxx: One other article on the event said it was a "gas pistol" - like perhaps it shot tear gas pellets, not actual bullets?

I saw that too. I'm guessing the guy works with the Green Hornet.
