Bulgarian Politician Assassination Attempt Caught On Live TV


Ahmed Dogan, leader of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms in Bulgaria, was giving a speech on Saturday when a lone assassin stepped up to him, pointed a small gun to his head and pulled the trigger. Fortunately for Dogan the weapon misfired which gave him time to react and push the would-be assassin’s hand out of the way as others stormed the stage to apprehend him and also to beat and kick him.

This guy, as my father would always say, “gets the punkin beat out of him” as he is on the ground being subdued.

Before he could attempt a second shot the unidentified suspect was tackled to the ground by security guards and delegates attending the conference in Sofia.

A separate group surrounded a shocked Mr Dogan in a protective shield.

Politicians then appeared from the audience and begin rained blows on the suspect as he was pinned to the ground.

Police said they arrested a 25-year-old man from the Black Sea town of Burgas who was also carrying two knives.

Dogan was OK and according to Movement for Rights and Freedoms official Ceyhan Ibryamov, “Ahmed Dogan is in good health. Everything is under control.”

The would-be assassin was beaten and bloodied as he was led away.

Dogan is seen as one of the Balkan country’s most influential political figures. His party also represents ethnice Turks and Muslims who make up about 12 percent of Bulgaria’s population.

Interestingly enough, Radio Bulgaria says exactly what one must do in order to own a gun there:

1. Pass safety training for gun use

2. Pass an exam

3. Consult a psychologist

4. Register the weapon

Sounds pretty similar to gun measure being proposed here by the Obama administration, Senator Dianne Feinstein and Congressional Democrats. Doesn’t seem to be working in Bulgaria, does it?
