    What did I miss?

    Did this Robert Glock attempt to speak for Glock or something? This seems a bit out of the blue.

  3. James says:

    I assume this has to do with the election and Mr. Glock’s personal opinion…

    This has been going on for awhile. Lawsuits, embezzling, threats of takeover. Apparently an executive is being sued by The Glock family for embezzling from the elder Glock. Austrian problems.

  5. Cameron Bell says:

    In July 1999 Charles Ewert, a business associate of Glock, hired a French ex-mercenary to murder Glock (who was 70 years old at that time[3]) with a mallet in a garage in Luxembourg in an apparent attempt to cover up embezzlement of millions from the Glock company.
    Although Glock’s injuries included seven head wounds and the loss of about a litre of blood, Glock was able to fend off the attack by striking the hitman twice. The hired killer, 67-year-old Jacques PĂȘcheur, was sentenced to 17 years in prison for the attack. Charles Ewert was sentenced to 20 years as a result of PĂȘcheur’s testimony.[4]

      What kind of idiot sends a 67 year old hit man to kill a 70 year old guy? What did he expect to happen? Was he gonna bludgeon Gaston with his Merc-Certified walker or somethin’? Ewok…er…Ewert deserves more than 20 years just for being an idiot, and more than that for the crime.
