Thorner: Tragic Shooting Death of Ex-Japan PM Shinzo Abe

Several days after the Highland Park shooting, ex-Japan PM Shinzo Abe was shot.  As al Jazeera puts it, "largely gun-free Japan…Japanese gun-ownership restrictions do not allow private citizens to have guns.” 

Reuters reported the following on July 8, 2022

“NARA, Japan, July 8 (Reuters) – Former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the longest-serving leader of modern Japan, was gunned down on Friday while campaigning for a parliamentary election, shocking a country where guns are tightly controlled and political violence almost unthinkable.”

“Abe, 67, was pronounced dead around five and a half hours after the shooting in the city of Nara. Police arrested a 41-year-old man and said the weapon was a homemade gun.”

Following is another report by American Liberty News:

"Japan’s longest-serving prime minister has died after being mortally wounded by a deranged gunman on the campaign trail.

Abe served as prime minister from 2006-2007 and again from 2012-2020.

He resigned that year due to a bout of ulcerative colitis.

Abe expanded the role of Japan’s Self-Defense Forces by signing into collective security agreements with allied nations.

He was best known domestically for Abenomics, a mix of expansionist monetary policies that brought Japan back from the brink of recession.”

The former Prime Minister's shooting was just weeks after a mass shooting in gun control happy Denmark  and a couple weeks earlier in Norway.

You may recall somewhere around a decade ago that Anders Brevik shot and blew up 77 people in Norway.  Yes, gun control laws are doing just dandy, aren’t they?

Of course, IL. already has a red flag law.  This article explains the “red flag” gun law in Illinois, including answering the questions “What is the Firearms Restraining Order Act?”, “What is a Red Flag in Illinois Law?” and “How to Remove Someone’s Firearm in Illinois.” 

US Dept. of Justice, dated 1992

Per the US Dept. of Justice, dated 1992: "Japanese Gun Control Laws Are Oppressive” (From Gun Control, P 252-259, 1992, Charles P Cozic, ed. — See NCJ-160164)": 

Other than the police and the military, no one in Japan may purchase a handgun or a rifle. Hunters and target shooters may possess shotguns and 59…although some people assert that Japan's low crime rate is due to gun control, it is actually due to Japan's culture. Other than the police and the military, no one in Japan may purchase a handgun or a rifle. Hunters and target shooters may possess shotguns and airguns under strictly circumscribed conditions. The police check gun licensees' ammunition inventory to make sure there are no shells or pellets unaccounted for.” 

Role of psychiatric drugs

Truth is, SSRIs are labeled on their packages about violence, suicide, etc.   See famed reporter Ben Swann in his video, Are Psychiatric Drugs Really the Leading Case of Mass Shootings? or Tucker Carlson here, Gun Control Doesn't Stop Bad People Guns.   

Truth is, with an equal number of guns, there were massively less shootings a generation ago…. before Big Pharma doped up our kids with SSRIs, the radical feminists destroyed fatherhood, and the family was intact.

And please don't worry about our hypocrite leftist politicians.  They are heavily covered by men with guns. Only us little people don't get to protect ourselves… or as famed sleazeball Leona Helmsley famously said, "Laws are for little people."

Statements released by current and former leaders 

Following the assassination of Abe Shinzo, many current and former leaders across the world released statements almost immediately, including President Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Boris Johnson, and even Vladimir Putin. 

Joe Biden didn't respond until Friday morning, July 8, 2022.  He then took the opportunity to respond about gun violence.   

“While there are many details that we do not yet know, we know that violent attacks are never acceptable and that gun violence always leaves a deep scar on the communities that are affected by it.”

As for former president Donald J. Trump, backstage at his Save America rally in Las Vegas, Nevada Trump announced that he was considering attending the funeral in Japan in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.

“We’re going to see how it goes,” the former president said when asked if he would attend Abe’s funeral.

“We’re talking to their family. We love the family. His wife is a phenomenal woman. He is so loved in Japan I can imagine that is going to be an incredible celebration of life. He was just very special. Every aspect of that man was just very special. You know he was the first person I saw? Do you remember he came early? He came right after the election—he was the first person I saw. But we had a special relationship. We’re going to see about that, we’re talking about that right now,” he said.

Democrat-media-axis expresses hatred

Because Shinzo Abe was a great friend to America and a great friend to Israel, the Democrat-media-axis hates him.

“When Fidel Castro died, NPR called him a “prominent international figure. On Yasser Arafat’s death “a freedom fighter.” When ISIS caliph al-Baghdadi died, the Washington Post called him an “austere religious scholar.” On Prime Minister’s Abu’s assassination, NPR’s statement: “a divisive arch-conservative and an ultranationalist.”

  1. PS, editor needs to clean up last sentence from Abu to Abe. This coming from the king of typos myself. Or am I a queen? No, neither… I self identify as a **dolphin**; and I will also be entering a dolphin I know for U Penn’s swimming team as, after all, we have already established that genetic don’t matter!
