Germany to ban paint ball guns?

Using a gun that was legally licensed, but illegally stored that he stole from his father. Germany is looking to making it so that all gun storage use biometric controls. This still would of not stopped the shooting. They already require all guns to be stored in guns safes, etc. This gun was not stored correctly and was already in violation of law. Requiring biometrics on gun storage boxes would not of stopped this shooting.
