Re: Zurich Christmas market lack of Security

following the terror attcks in Paris the new EU directive aims to make access more difficult to arms that can cause a large number of deaths, such as some semi-automatic weapons. Switzerland is not an EU member, but must also reform its legislation or risk its Schengen membership.

Re: Zurich Christmas market lack of Security

TüV Germany found out that the Merkel Legos are insufficient and rather dangerous. the blocks work as a projectile when a truck might hit them. to secure a market like Berlin Ku'damm they have to invest 2.9 Mio €
theses poller shown in the videos seem more protective though the effects might be that still people get hurt...

Re: Zurich Christmas market lack of Security

Shouldn't that be in the joke section instead of the Christmas market/terrorist's thread?

If it happens to be an accident it still is not on purpose
