The German Interior Minister seems to have more common sense than a lot of our politicians.Â See the interview here:
Some German politicians have called for a ban on private gun ownership and urged authorities to set up airport-style security systems at schools in response to the massacre, which left 16 people dead, including the killer.
“I can’t see how a change in weapons rules would contribute anything to solving the problem,” Schaeuble, an ally of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, told Reuters.
In response to setting up airport style security at schools?
“Do we now want to treat pupils like passengers at the airport? Imagine the effect on children growing up under such circumstances. It’s absurd! I think it wouldn’t help us at all.”
Vielen Dank, Herr Schaeuble.Â The world needs your common sense during times like this.
