ERFURT, Germany — Four years ago, after a young student in Tourcoing, France, was killed with a pistol he brought to school, politicians, government officials and sociologists blamed the unusual incident on the spillover of violent culture from the United States making its way to Europe. I don't want America to export its civilization of violence, fumed Claude Allegre, who was French education minister at the time. We are not a country of cowboys, we are not a... (GunPolicy.org)

Tony Blair has ordered a crackdown on powerful airguns which can be converted to fire bullets.

MADRID — On paper, Western Europe seems like a gun control utopia. The laws governing firearms are tougher than those in the United States. Citizens are less likely to be armed. And the number of gun crimes is substantially lower. On the street, though, there are signs of ominous change. Friday's massacre at a school in Germany was the latest in a series of bloody gun crimes around the continent during the last year. The two worst examples were the slaughter of... (GunPolicy.org)

ERFURT, Germany — A teenage gunman who killed 16 people and himself at his former school here was a gun-club member who legally owned the weapons he carried in the rampage, targeting most of his victims with well-aimed pistol shots to the head, authorities said Saturday. Friday's blood bath was cut short after about 15 minutes by a courageous history teacher, Rainer Heise, who managed to shove the black-clad gunman into a room and lock the door, German police said...
