    Sorry if this is a d_b, but this is a crazy story. A would-be assassin rushed the stage and attempted to shoot the leader of Bulgaria's ethnic Turkish party at point-blank range. Only the gun jammed.

    The still photos are pretty chilling:


    Here's the video:


    The security guys get in a few good Deniro-in-Goodfellas-esque kicks on the guy before they haul him out.

    Well, now we know who hired Rob Ryan to run their defense.

    I always think it's fake until those dudes get their licks in. That's the fun part.

    Looks like someone needs to spend a little time in a Turkish bathhouse.

    This guy deserves a Tosh.0 Web Redemption with a gun that works.

    Lesson I learned from reading a thousand detective mysteries — Always use a revolver for a hit job. They don't jam.

    That guy should've been dead before he hit the floor.

    Poor form after the take down. The shooter was still not controlled, guys taking potshots should have been pinning him down.
