But wait! This can't happen here!

But.... they already have severe gun control in Germany! This can only happen in America, where the people are fully armed and afraid to use their weapons in self defense!

A school shooting bloodbath near Stuttgart in Germany has left at least 15 people dead - with the gunman dying in an exchange of fire with the police.

He was shot in the parking lot of the Wendlinger shopping centre, where he had reportedly killed two more people, bring the number of people dead up to at least 15.

First reports indicate that the victims include a nine pupils, two teachers, a gardener and two passersby.

Whatcha wanna bet the shooter was on Prozac or some other SRI type drug, hmmm?

Witnesses described a young person wearing black combat gear storming the Albertville School at 10am.

Without a word, he opened fire in corridors and rooms. Eleven people have been reported to have been killed, with several more injured. Police confirmed a death toll of 15 and said there had been "numerous wounded".

A spokeswoman for the interior ministry in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg said: "We have to assume a death toll that’s in the double-digits." She added: "These are students."

The gunman fled following the massacre and is said to be on the loose in the city centre. Police have evacuated the school and closed off the town and the surrounding regions to search for the killer, with helicopters circling above the town. Motorists have been warned against picking up hitchhkers.

"Police are coming through the whole time. They’re obviously looking all over town for him,“ said Roberto Seifert, who works at a company neighbouring the school. "We’ve never had anything like this,“ he told Reuters by phone.

OK Folks, I suppose the answer to events such as these is to cower under our desks and do NOTHING! I suppose school teachers are NOT responsible for the safety of the students trusted to their care. I supposed German school Head Masters are NOT responsible for the safety and security of their own schools. I suppose the call will now go out for tighter gun regulation Globally, so that the German people won't ever NEED to be responsible for their own safety and security.

I suppose now that this has happened on both sides of the Atlantic, that we should all just lay down and surrender.


Do we stand with manly firmness?
