We’re told over and over that the United States is the only country where mass shootings happen. Over and over again, the anti-gunners pretend that this is a uniquely American problem. Europe, they tell us, is immune to this sort of thing.
Which would be easier to believe if it didn’t keep happening over there, too.
A suspect on a terrorist watch list was being hunted Wednesday after three people were killed and more than a dozen others wounded in a shooting near a Christmas market in the French city of Strasbourg.
Police had raided the suspect’s home hours before Tuesday’s attack as part of a burglary probe.Cultural sites and sports centers were closed on Wednesday as 350 police officers were deployed in the manhunt.
The shooting took place shortly before 8 p.m. local time (2 p.m. ET) near a Christmas market that attracts millions of tourists every year. Strasbourg considers itself the “capital of Christmas.”
The suspect fled the scene and exchanged shots with police between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. local time, according to Interior Minister Christophe Castaner. He said the suspect has a criminal record in France and Germany.
