Germany calls for tighter gun laws after Munich mall attack
July 24, Berlin: Senior German politicians have called for stricter controls on the sale of guns in response to the shooting attack in Munich on Friday that killed nine people.
Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel said everything possible should be done to limit access to deadly weapons.
Ali David Sonboly, 18, shot dead nine people and injured 27 people before killing himself. He had a Glock pistol and more than 300 bullets. Among the injured, 10 are critical, as a result of the attack at the city's Olympia mall, the biggest shopping centre in the state of Bavaria.
Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere, who visited the scene of the shootings, said he planned to review gun laws.
Vigils are continuing in Munich to commemorate the victims, seven of whom were teenagers. Three were from Kosovo, three from Turkey and one from Greece.
