1. How bad WAS the speech?

(Did the president use some Krav Maga on the guy to deflect the gun?)

2. I believe this to be a staged event, that Dogan might look "macho"

 

See "Vladimir Putin."

4. Single shot pistol. Tackled and stopped. Go figure.

I trust this will get heavy rotation.

7. My understanding is that it was a gas pistol -

so failed "assassin" might be a stretch. Failed mental health is probably more to the point.

8. Soviet KGB used Cyanide Gas pistols to assassinate

so, it could be legit.
There were a number of prominent figures assassinated this way in the past. The Bulgarian Secret Service was also the one that used a hollow platinum pellet containing Ricin to assassinate a dissident. One of me co-workers did the evaluation on the Ricin containing pellet and showed it to me, so it was a real event.

11. Gas pistol in this case

refers to a tear gas pellet gun. I still think "assassin" is an exaggeration.

9. security?

Was there security anywhere in the neighborhood? It appears that the real response came from guys who wanted to kick the shit out of the perp. Not a pair of handcuffs in sight.

10. I lke the way they just got him under control, hand cuffed and walked off to back stage.....

But no-one was allowed to touch the pistol, but everyone got in at least one punch or kick.
