It is being reported that former Japanese Prime Minister Abe has been assassinated by a malcontent armed with a "home-made shotgun".
Not an "assault rifle".
Not a hunting rifle.
Not a semi-automatic handgun or a revolver.
Not a commercially made shotgun.
Abe was killed with a "home-made shotgun" and based on the smoke in the video, there is a reasonable chance that the killer did not use commercially manufactured ammunition.
I am speculating here, but Abe may have been killed by a length of pipe purloined from a piece of lawn furniture or black iron pipe lifted from a building site, 30 grams of steel nuts, 10 grams of home-made blackpowder or flashpowder harvested from commercial fireworks, a cell-phone battery and a wisp of fine steel-wool.
The human mind is the ultimate weapon.
They can ban every commercially manufactured weapon. They can attempt to squash 3-D printed technology. They can ban ammo and components. They can ban the sale of oxidizers like swimming pool sanitizer and they can ban powdered sugar.
But it will not matter.
The human mind is the ultimate weapon. And if they generate enough hate they will not be able to avoid push-back.
Karma sucks, but only if you suck first.
