Why do the Swiss shootings get omitted on this thread?

Now that you mentioned it, I do. I did a robbery a few days ago. . .

But here:

Wild guess, they're not as plastered in the news as they are in 'Murica.

UK Breaking news. Some twat in Chatham Kent arrested for firing a gun from a balcony. Hopefully a really long prison sentence for endangering the police (potential virus infected) at this time

Are assault rifles even legal here for civilians?

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Yes. But the setting has to be on single shot mode. The standard issue Swiss army rifle has a selector where you can specify whether you require 1 shot, 3 shots or kingdom come (empty the mag) in order to get the job done. It is illegal to have the setting on anything other than single shot mode.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

This incident is a bit of an odd one. It happened earlier in April, when an octogenarian on his visit to the doctor in Zofingen, apparently shot him. The shooting was investigated and declared an accident.

The gentleman probably stems from a time where your revolver was your 1-800 courtesy line.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Only in America

Two customers shot two McDonald's employees in Oklahoma City Wednesday after they were told to leave the store's dining area, police say.

The suspects got angry and took out a gun when they were asked to leave due to coronavirus restrictions that were in place.

Auckland, New Zealand: an unarmed police officer was shot and killed, and his partner injured, by a driver at a traffic stop. This is the first time in 11 years that a police officer has been killed in the line of duty in NZ.
