If that's what they're saying, maybe you misheard ...

They're saying it was a long gun whatever the fuck that means. I'm assuming that's some sort of hunting rifle. He fired a few shots in the air but never harmed the hostages. Dude was dazed and confused with a suicide-by-cop plan but at least he was decent enough not to hurt anyone else.

Long gun is a generic term for firearms with long barrels, I.e rifles and shotguns.

RE: German police kill cinema shooter
He carried a "long [barreled] gun" (= usual term for unknown/unspecified type of rifle) and a pistol, both being fright shot (?). Fake handgrenades as well.
He was a 19y old from Mannheim, living in Hamburg.
Suicide by cop is pure speculation at the moment. Reasons for what he did are unknown at the moment.

No, a long gun is anything that is not a hand gun - a rifle, a shotgun, a carbine, a machine gun, etc.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Except for the part where the slug could affect someone in its completed trajectory. People shoot their guns in the air on July 4th and New Year's Eve here in the US, and other times just for kicks. People are killed by those discharges falling from the sky. Who is to say that shooting a gun into the "sky" is actually safe? Not trying to bust your balls, here. Personally, if I wanted to die, I'd just go huff a bag of nitrogen. I wouldn't take anyone with me, and I'd have to have a terminal illness, to do that.

Take no notice of me last night. I am on so many powerful drugs, by late evening or night I am off my tree. Brain dead and often nonsensical. My chemo began 19 months ago.

Add the experimental drug, plus the various tablets I must take alongside it. My signature is there for a very real reason.

Can I extend that to all the other non-Americans who lump us into one gun-crazy mass? Consider

No. You may not.

However the problem is huge in that country. Approaching third world conditions. And people such as yourself seem powerless to control it. Indeed, it seems beyond control now.

I'm not powerless, I'm working with my Congressman to try to get this stupidity under control.
