Shootings in Germany and the USA: People are Out of Control!

By SOP newswire2

A few hours after the shooting which took place in the USA, where a gunman killed 10 people before turning the gun on himself, a masked teenager in black combat gear did the same at his old school in Germany this morning, slaying at least 16 people before being shot dead in a shootout with police.

Even if the timing is coincidence, one could wonder why this kind of event seems to happen more and more frequently. Deeply affected by what happened, MEPs held one minute of silence this morning and President Pottering made a statement on this issue. We met Martin Schulz, president of the Socialist Group, to have his impressions on what happened.
