Bizarre assassination attempt in Bulgaria
A would-be assassin pulled the trigger on his gun at close range but the gun did not fire.
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air observes, “The gun misfired, but it was a gas pistol, used to fire teargas cartridges only; it’s a non-lethal weapon in most applications, although at the range the assassin had, it likely would have killed Ahmed Dogan.”
There is also speculation that the whole thing might have been staged. It doesn’t look staged to me, but it is bizarre.
