Oh look, the breathless Ass-occidental Press "reports":

HALLE, Germany (AP) — A heavily armed assailant ranting about Jews tried to force his way into a synagogue in Germany on Yom Kippur, Judaism’s holiest day, then shot two people to death nearby in an attack Wednesday that was livestreamed on a popular gaming site.

The attacker shot at the door of the synagogue in the eastern city of Halle but did not get in as 70 to 80 people inside were observing the holy day.

He video live-streamed the "attack" on Twitch, which was taken down almost-immediately -- but not before copies were made and started circulating.  I managed to watch one before it was yanked down.

This guy made Achmed (of Jeff Dunham fame) look skilled.

"Heavily armed"?  This guy had what looked to be a couple of home-made guns which only worked once in a while -- literally -- along with a cache of home-made "bombs" that I put in quotes because they were barely better than a firecracker in terms of their "performance."

He managed to kill two.  He clearly wanted to kill many, but he was only able to get two people.  Both of them, had they been armed, would have trivially been able to put one right between his eyes.  He was "so skilled" that he shot the tire on his own car while gunning down an unarmed defenseless woman -- on something like the third or fifth attempt.  He managed to get a guy in a deli/grocery store type place after several attempts as well.

Even better, a bunch of people drove by or near him while he was trying to shoot with a weapon that wasn't working and nobody ran that ********** over with their car!

He tried to "bomb" the door to the synagogue but his "bomb" was about as effective as a firecracker and did nothing.  Then he tried kicking it down and failed at that as well.

It took the cops nearly 20 minutes after he was first apparently going to try to kill people within visible range of others to show up.

The attack “strikes the Jewish community, Jewish people not just in Germany but particularly in Germany, to the core,” said the country’s main Jewish leader, Josef Schuster. “It was, I think, only lucky circumstances that prevented a bigger massacre.”

No, this person was quite literally the worst terrorist I've ever seen any documentation on.  He couldn't make a working explosive device and he either couldn't make or obtain a working firearm.

It also points out, once again, that in the event of a nutjob the only defense you have is your own -- not the damned pigs, who will get there in time to zip your body into a bag.  Had this guy actually been competent he could have done an incredible amount of damage.

And had one of the people there who drove by him while he was wielding a firearm and attempting to use it had any balls whatsoever they could have run his ass over with said vehicle and that would have been that.  It's not like they didn't have a very effective weapon capable of stopping this jackwad at their command.

This is why we have a 2nd Amendment, and why all citizens, no matter where, damn well need to insist on not only the presence of a 2nd Amendment but its enforcement including the four words at the end: SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.

I swear I read a MSM report on this saying that he had an 'assault-style' weapon with him. Annoyingly its probably been scrubbed by now, I'll try to go hunt it down.

There are a couple excerpts on Kaotic. There was a working link to the whole video which I watched but it's broken now. The only thing I can think is nobody took this guy for real... his helmet was goofy and his guns were homemade. Someone translated the woman who walked up and said "must you be doing this while I walk this way" She then just walked away and he shot her three times in the back. The pipe shotgun seamed like it might have a chance against the synagogue door but it was a really heavy door from the looks. I think he studied how to do a terrorist attack and did the opposite, it was just that bad. He ran around yelling ****, ****! when nothing was working.

"they could have run his ass over with said vehicle and that would have been that."
One reason no one will do that: if the ****er survived, he'd sue YOU into oblivion and he'd probably win. It's the same issue women now face, where men simply won't bother trying to help them if they're being assaulted, because it's odds-on the woman will just turn around and #metoo them for their trouble.

Look after #1 is the order of the day now.

It is interesting they are more interested in covering up the truth and asking for our guns than letting the real story get out. In Canada, after the left bring up a Muslim, who testified NZ was a right wing attack against Muslims, a conservative brought up the shooters manifesto, which showed he was a Chinese communist party worshiper. The conservative was censored and the reading taken out of the record. We are fighting more than the left in our country. This is an international game to control the narrative. They get the US under international law, they will use it to take our guns.

Radio, the only way to stop a terrorist or mass shooter is to attack them. One might get shot doing so, but they might get shot not doing so. Someone could have nailed the Walmart shooter from behind before he got half the people he shot. Ever been to a Super Walmart? The place looks like an ant hill. A man can only focus in one direction at a time, especially if he is trying to hit a target. Probably 25 people behind him could have stopped him.

I'm sure the families of the dead will thank the police for protecting them.

The left never learn. You are on your own until the cops find their way out of that donut shop. If you aren't gonna carry, at least be aware of your surroundings. Personally, I don't carry because I moved to a safe town. But when people are acting strangely I know how I'll avoid them and grab something to fight back with.

I didn't see one. I saw really crappy bombs, a pipe shotgun and I believe he was using a semi pistol modified for full auto.

If I'm going to deliberately run someone down, they're going to need to get the guy out of the pavement with a shovel and a hose. That's what God gave me 'Reverse' and '4WD'.

Of which left are we speaking? The left that does not own guns, or the left (like Kamala Harris and Diane Feinstein, both Senators from California) who do? Or the left, like Michael Bloomberg, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerburg, who each have what amounts to a couple of fire teams at their disposal, 24/7/365?
If you mean people like my relatives then yes, they will never learn because they listen to people with every motive to deceive them.

It doesn't matter "which left", Jduwaldt. Leftists are evil, corrupt, lying, non-logical, unable to reason pieces of ****.

Hopefully I made my position clear.

Been reading for years now and finally registered ...

One point that everyone seems to miss here is how this incident conveniently pushed a separate incident (October 8, Limburg Germany) where a Syrian attempted several times to hijack a truck, and, upon success, proceeded to crash into about 9 other vehicles.

Funny, no continued Media interest in the background - no minutes of silence at Soccer matches - it is almost as if it never happened ....
