Former Japanese premier Shinzo Abe assassinated

A tragedy has taken place in Japan, as the former prime minister Shinzo Abe was murdered near Kyoto:
Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe died Friday, after he was shot and wounded while giving a speech in western Japan.

[...] The former premier, Japan’s longest serving prime minister, was delivering a speech in Nara Friday when a gunman opened fire, leaving Abe critically wounded.

[...] One 41-year-old male suspect was arrested in connection with the assassination.

NHK identified the suspect as Tetsuya Yamagami, a resident of Nara.

Police say the gun used in the deadly shooting appears to have been homemade.

Yamagami worked for the Maritime Self Defense Force for three years, ending his service in 2005.

Investigators say Yamagami revealed during interrogation that he was unhappy with the former prime minister, and wanted to kill him.
Absolutely obscene. This horrible incident also proves that, if criminals want and have the resources, they can build homemade firearms, and if it can happen in Asia, it can happen in the USA too, one more reason why the gun control laws the Democrats have been going miles out of their way to enforce are hollow.

This is a most terrible tragedy, and I wish to offer my condolences to Abe's family.

Update: Donald Trump also offered his condolences.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
