A fight at a nightclub Saturday in the Zheleznodorozhny district of Moscow, Russia turned into a point-blank shooting, a video posted to LiveLeak shows.

According to the video description on LiveLeak, the fight broke out between visitors of the nightclub. One man fired a single shot from a “traumatic gun,” a non-lethal pistol often used as a starting gun or a flare gun.

Police later identified the gunman as a 22-year-old resident of Moscow.


This is a savage fight, worthy of Russia’s reputation. One thing to keep in mind is all these brawlers are almost certainly stone-cold drunk off the cheapest vodka available. This is not a silly stereotype, just the facts.

OK, it’s definitively a stereotype. But I bet I’m right.

Usually drunk fights are just pitiable bozos with beer bellies embarrassing themselves, yet this one is a true brawl. That’s the Russian advantage.

Anyway, this is why I support improving our relationship with Russia.

Seriously, do we really wanna pick a fight with these guys?
