I’ve been considering adding a scrolling ticker across the bottom of the blog to provide current quotes on black/muslim murders. But upon calculating the average daily volume, I may have to narrow its scope to a range that doesn’t update so quickly as to be a perpetual blur. Perhaps we’ll just start with activity in Valdosta, Georgia and see how manageable the figures are there first.
Yesterday’s update occurred via mass shooting in Munich, with nine dead and 27 wounded (including several children). The press took customary pains to assure an ashen public that the assailant was “Iranian German,” and thus very much a natural feature of the national landscape.
Though less widely understood is the fact that Iranian German is media shorthand for his and his victim’s nationalities. So if Steve Sailer, for instance, went on a killing spree in Kuala Lumpur, reports would describe the carnage of an “American Malay.” At least this is how I understand the convention to work.
But another oddly elided aspect of the Munich killings was the fact that they were almost certainly in violation of Germany’s strict gun control laws.
The German system of gun control is among the most stringent in Europe. It restricts the acquisition, possession, and carrying of firearms to those with a creditable need for a weapon. It bans fully automatic weapons and severely restricts the acquisition of other types of weapons. Compulsory liability insurance is required for anyone who is licensed to carry firearms.
In recent years, German gun-control law underwent several reforms that made it even more stringent. A new Weapons Act became effective in 2003 after a school shooting in the city of Erfurt in which a student killed sixteen persons. The new Act restricted the use of large caliber weapons by young people and strengthened requirements for the safe storage of firearms.
Another reform was enacted in 2009 in response to the massacre at Winnenden, in which an eighteen-year-old killed fifteen people in the course of a school shooting. This latest reform led to the creation of a federal gun register and to intense governmental monitoring of gun owners’ compliance with requirements for the safe storage of firearms. Pursuant to the reformed legislation, the authorities may at any time request access to the premises of any registered gun owner to monitor whether proper safe-storage procedures are being observed.
At this point I’m extremely skeptical of whether Ali Sonboly maintained proper safe-storage procedures for his firearm. And once the Munich court docket is cleared of all the right-wing Internet comment criminals, I do hope heads will roll for not having checked to see if his pistol had a trigger lock.
Because these were gun deaths, you understand. Nothing more. And if native Germans were even further disarmed against millions of encroaching foreign hostiles, they wouldn’t have to suffer any more repeats–the odd ax attack notwithstanding.
But this isn’t just my uninformed speculation. It comes straight from the paper of record.
The 18-year-old man who killed nine people and injured 27 others in a shooting rampage in Munich on Friday evening had material at home indicating a fixation with violent attacks, but he had no apparent links to the Islamic State or any other organized groups, the German authorities said Saturday.
Sketching out an initial profile of the killer, the police and prosecutors said there was no evidence that his rampage, at a McDonald’s and a nearby shopping mall, had been driven by religion or immigration, issues that have been contentious in Germany and across Europe.
The gunman, who was born and raised in Munich and held dual German and Iranian citizenship, killed himself with a single shot to the head…
So readers need to set aside their bigotry and accept the facts. He had no links to ISIS and absolutely no problem with mass immigration into Germany. See, it’s only the alien immigration-restrictionists you have to be wary of. This was just a normal middle-eastern dual citizen, and thus no less German than Otto von Bismarck.
Fortunately chancellor Merkel empathizes with the victims of her handiwork:
“We are in deep and profound mourning for those who will never return to their families — the families, the siblings, the friends for whom everything will be void and empty today,” she said.
Right, but enough about Africans bobbing in the Mediterranean. The point is keeping the natives sedated until the rest of Nigeria gets here.
She said many Germans were understandably asking, “Am I secure? Am I safe?” when in public spaces, but she praised Germany’s security forces as “phenomenal” and said the cooperation between federal and Bavarian security forces was “seamless.”
I’m not sure if “phenomenal” is the term I’d use to describe 36 perforated bodies by a lone teenager who was eventually brought down by his own hand. By that measure, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was equally instrumental. But in context of Merkel’s obvious designs, nine dead Germans just might be phenomenal indeed.
But Merkel wasn’t the only Hun commenting on the carnage. An unidentified German is reported to have shared opinions with the gunman himself. This dialogue between the shooter and a witness was reportedly captured on video.
In another video on social media a man can be heard yelling at suspect in the car park that he is a ‘w*****’ and an ‘a******e.’ And he yelled: ‘Put your gun down.’
Balcony man: ‘You fucking a*****e you…’
Gunman: ‘Because of you I was bullied for 7 years…’
Balcony man: ‘You w****r you. you’re a w****r’
Gunman: ‘…and now I have to buy a gun to shoot you’
Balcony man: ‘A gun! F**k off! Your head should be cut off you a*****e’
Balcony man apparently to people filming: ‘He’s got a gun here the guy has one’
Unseen voice: ‘F*****g Turks!’
Balcony man: ‘F*****g foreigner’
Balcony man to someone else: ‘Ey! He’s got a gun! He has loaded his gun. Get the cops here. He’s walking around here the w****r!’
Gunman: ‘I am German.’
Balcony man: ‘You’re a w****r is what you are’
Gunman: ‘Stop filming!’
Balcony man: ‘A w****r is what you are. What the f**k are you doing?’
Shooter: ‘Yeah what, I was born here.’
Balcony man: ‘Yeah and what the f**k you think you’re doing?’
Gunman: ‘I grew up here in the Hartz 4 (unemployment benefits in Germany) area.’
Balcony man and Shooter talk at same time.
Balcony man: ‘Yeah treatment is something for you’
Gunman: ‘I haven’t done anything here for (unintelligible) … ‘Please shut your mouth’
Balcony man: ‘You c**t you’
Balcony man to people nearby: ‘Hey, he’s on the upper floor here.’
The cameraman goes into cover as the gunman starts firing. Balcony man calls him a c***t again.
Balcony man: ‘They must have been s******g into your head’
Gunman: ‘They have not. They have not, that’s the thing. They have not.’
Balcony Man: anonymous tribune of the West. Though there’s a lot of incriminating asterisks in that exchange. And I imagine it’s sufficient evidence to secure a long incarceration. I almost hope Merkel will press for charges against this recalcitrant German. Nicolae grows eager with the prospect of companionship.
