Boring Speech, Then Scary Assassination Attempt

I don't know if you've seen this one on the news yet, but this post contains some scary video of an assassination attempt on a politician in Bulgaria.

To set it up: In the video, a man in a suit is droning on at a podium at some conference or political meeting when a large man runs onto the stage and points a gun at point blank range at the politician's head.

Through some miracle, the gun briefly jams, allowing the politician to swat the gun away. Then a whole bunch of people run onto the stage, tackle the would-be assailant and start beating the crap out of him.

News reports indicate the assailant was Okta Enimehmedov, 25, a guy with a criminal record that includes assault and robbery. His condition after the beating he (deservedly) took was not immediately available. The reports said he was using a gas pistol, which is normally a nonlethal weapon used for self defense, but it can cause life threatening injuries if used at point blank range.

The description of the incident sounds scary enough , but my words are boring compared to this video (You might have to click on it to say you are over 18)
