In the wake of the mass shooting that killed 10 people and injured 35 more in Munich last Friday, German officials have called for more stringent gun laws. As everyone already knows however, Germany already has a very comprehensive set of gun laws. So instead, the gun grabbing politicians in Germany are calling for everyone else in the EU to restrict gun ownership.
According to German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere, the EU is working on creating tighter gun regulations after the Munich attack. “In Europe, we want to make further progress with a common weapons policy. First we need to determine how the perpetrators procured a weapon, then we have to look very carefully at where to make legal changes.”
However, it seems that the Europe’s opinion on guns has drastically shifted since the refugee crisis began. Applications for weapon licenses have soared in Germany in recent years, and in France there appears to be a massive surge in gun purchases.
So there’s no telling what these legal proposals could do to the integrity of the EU. More and more we’re seeing Europeans become nationalistic since the refugee crisis began, and we’re seeing more Europeans buying guns to protect themselves from migrants. Gun laws vary considerably across Europe, and forcing everyone to adhere to the same laws during this crisis, could push more voters to consider leaving the EU.
