Proof that a hand gun is also an assault weapon. Ban the gun. No wait. Just the bullets. You can be assaulted by bullets you know. OK, ban both of them.
You probably don’t know this but you can be assaulted by a common butter knife in the hands of a bad guy.
Not at all funny for the guy who was facing what he had to believe was certain death. But the gun misfired.
I like the idea that some guys were able to beat the hell out of the would be killer. Now why can’t our people in the west do good deeds like that?
See the link for the still photos which are good and have detail. Very in interesting stuff.
oh btw… just to be sure ya know. I was only kidding about banning the assault hand gun. lol

A Bulgarian politician today survived an extraordinary assassination attempt when a man stormed the stage and held a gun to his head as he was giving a speech.
Fortunately for Ahmed Dogan, leader of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms, the weapon misfired giving him time to react and hit the would-be assassins hand out of the way.
Before he can attempt a second shot the unidentified suspect is tackled to the ground by security guards and delegates attending the conference in Sofia.
Television footage showed the man jumping out of the audience and interrupting a speech by 58-year-old Dogan, who has led the party for almost a quarter of a century.
In a split second, he raises the gun to Mr Dogan’s head but it appears to misfire.
The politician then knocks gone the gun away and falls to the floor as he attempts to flee.
Security guards and delegates rush onto the stage where they wrestle the attacker to the ground.
A separate group surrounds a shocked Mr Dogan in a protective shield.
Politicians then appear from the audience and begin raining blows on the suspect as he is pinned to the ground.
He was later pictured being taken away by police bloodied and bruised.

Always make sure your striker spring is fresh and that the firing pin and it’s tunnel are clean, rust free, and lightly oiled.
Im betting he forgot to pull the slide back to load one in the chamber.
Looks like he’s re-racking in Pic 2. Guy looks really spetsnaz, don’t he?
Well, all those east german secret police types had to go somewhere.
