Japan ex-PM Abe shot
« on: July 07, 2022, 11:31:13 PM »

Reportedly shot in the back while giving a speech. Reported inured.
Not something you see very often in Japan.

Ex-Tokyo governor Yoichi Masuzoe said in a tweet that Mr Abe was in a state of cardiopulmonary arrest.

Hard to tell what it is.

Home made, "ghost" gun, whatever.  Wouldn't it be an ideal time to set up some addled dude to attempt a killing with a home made gun?

Yeah, I know, Japan, 6k miles away, but something like this would sure fit into the current PTB goals here in the US, and news is instantly world-wide nowadays.  It could have happened the next town over.

He has died.

Just goes to show that we need MORE gun control, confiscation, and anti-Trump measures here in the United States!

Looks like a couple of pipes taped together to a board.
Would like to see how he rigged up the trigger and firing mech. Wonder if the Japanese will keep details of the gun under wraps to limit letting people know how to make their own.
Appears to be RC batteries underneath in the 2nd photo

RIP. He seemed like one of the more decent world leaders.

So the shooter allegedly made the shotgun. I'm wondering where he got the ammo components?

I see most everyone in the world has sent condolences at this time except for Biden and Harris.

Propellant is easy. Lighting it off was the hard part.

Making black powder is easy.
As far as lighting off note the batteries and wires in the 2nd  photo above

Do we know it was black powder? Black powder is easy in the US. I don't know how easy it is to acquire the chemicals in Japan. Also the ignition source.

I was just saying black powder is easy not that it was black powder and I haven't heard anything official but from the smoke in the videos I would say black powder and given how restrictive Japan is in regards to firearms likely.

An RC car battery is visible under the makeshift shotgun.  An electrical igniter isn't all that difficult to fashion from various types of readily available wire with more resistance than copper.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

From the pictures, don't be surprised if duct tape is going to be restricted as a firearm precursor component . . .

Who shoots a former world leader? Makes one wonder what he was up to in retirement.

You can't lead a big nation without pissing SOME people off - that's why former US Presidents get lifetime Secret Service protection. And they should.

I wonder how long the shooter is going to stay in a Japanese prison - what little I know about Jap prisons says they're highly regimented and not pleasant.

IIRC the Boston bombers use the powder from fireworks.

I wonder if the assailant will get the death penalty.  I saw a documentary on how Japan does executions.  It is by hanging, and the condemned is not told of the execution date until the morning of the day and the family is not told until after it is done.
