    These uppity terrorist types are really becoming quite insufferable.

    Hmmm. Crazy teenager fancies emulating American and other gun massacres.

    Very sad and upsetting event. Tragic for those involved of course.

    But not a reason for moral cowardice in response.

    Usual hysterical response as bigots on this forum seek to make this into an argument in favour of fascism.

    Ali Sonboly, an 18 year old citizen of both Germany and Iran, has been described as a
    lonely, shy teenager who was bullied at school. According to police, he had sought
    treatment for depression and psychiatric problems. He had read about shootings at
    American schools in a book _Why Kids Kill_, which was found inside his home.

    Was he an 'Islamist terrorist' passing as a recent migrant? No, first of all, he had been
    living for many years in Germany. He had no criminal record or known links to Islamist groups.
    As an Iranian, if he was a Muslim, he almost certainly would have been a Shia, and ISIS
    regards the Shias as mortal enemies. And the Islamic Republic of Iran has no recent
    record of encouraging Shias in Western societies to undertake terrorist actions there.
    The German police already have ruled out any connection to ISIS. His victims include
    some Germans of Muslim heritage.

    In 2009 another teenager shot and killed fifteen people at his old school in Winnenden, Germany.
    This tragedy seems to have more in common with school shootings than with 'Islamist terrorism'.

    As soon as some bigots suspect that a killer might be of Muslim heritage, they hasten
    to blame 'Muslim terrorism' or simply Islam itself for what that killer has done.

    Based upon the evidence so far, this tragedy seems to be another case of a bullied lonely
    teenager with mental health issues who lashed out against a society that rejected him.

    Don't you know? No-one cares about people being shot when it's not happening in America.

    to explain to whodey, because he lacks the mental capacity to understand, you just described a high percentage of mass shootings in the US. funny how our lovable ashole jumps to terrorism here, without hearing the facts when there are mass shooters in the US who started their rampage for almost the exact same reasons.


    well it isn't hard to get why, though. this kid was muslim, those were christians. christians cannot engage in terrorism, everyone knows that.

    After this tragic accident, we must acknowledge something the lefties conveniently forget. This wouldn't have happened if those mcDonalds teenagers had carried guns themselves. Or if the mcdonalds employes were armed.

    "Reuters is reporting that Germany's already strict gun laws could be tightened further.

    The country's Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative Christian Democrats, told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper that he planned to review German gun laws after the attack, and seek improvements where needed."


    No, no , Germany, what are you doing. The correct response after a mass shooting is to loosen gun laws, not the other way around. You are following the example of Australia (who didn't have a mass shooting since 1996) instead of following the example of the US (who didn't have a mass shooting since the current year)
