At least two people are confirmed dead and ten seriously injured after an unidentified gunman opened fire in the city-center of Strasbourg, France Tuesday; apparently targeting random tourists near the town’s famous Christmas Market.

“At least two people were killed and 10 were wounded in a shooting in the eastern French city of Strasbourg on Tuesday, government officials said, and the gunman was on the loose,” reports the NY Times.

The lone gunman reportedly fired into the crowd at approximately 8PM local time near the tourist hotspot that attracts millions each year.

Huh. That;s odd.

Obama and Harry Reid assured us that these mass shootings only happen in the United States.

President Obama talked about it a lot, including in June of 2015, after a gunman shot nine people in a Charleston, North Carolina church: "Let’s be clear: At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries," [Obama said. ](

Days later, Sen. Harry Reid echoed his comments. “The United States is the only advanced country where this kind of mass violence occurs,” he said.

Do you really want to go here? Our country has a terrible record when it comes to gun violence.

Not wanting to turn this to a gun debate, but we’re are they getting the ak-47’s from. I have heard there is a black market there but are they coming in from the sea or coming from Eastern Europe were guns are more plentiful especially after the Yugoslavia war? That would seem a risky trip smuggling in weapons through the Baltic regions as they would be under heavier scrutiny at border checks.

Same with Sweden with all the grenade attacks, it’s hard to see how they are being smuggled into Sweden when Denmark only has two highways into Sweden.

Go where?

I’m just pointing out that both Obama and Reid were lying to us.
