    This is the clunky homemade weapon used to assassinate former Japanese
    leader Shinzo Abe Friday in a country that has some of the strictest gun
    laws in the world.

    Pictures from the shocking attack appear to show the killer — identified
    as 41-year-old military veteran Tetsuya Yamagami — tossing the crude,
    black tape-covered firearm moments after gunning down the ex-prime

    It remained near the assassin’s feet as security tackled him to the ground
    — while others started doomed attempts to save Abe, 67, who bled to death
    from two deep gunshot wounds, including one in the neck.

    The images show what appears to be a rudimentary double-barrelled shotgun,
    with two tubes taped together atop a wooden body and a black handle.

    A security guard seizes the suspect.

    The “craft-made” firearm appeared to be similar to a Civil War-era musket,
    in which the gunpowder or the propellant is loaded separately to the
    bullet projectile, according to N.R. Jenzen-Jones, the director of
    Armament Research Services, a specialist arms investigations firm.

    Police found several possible explosives during a raid on Yamagami’s home,
    and the suspect confessed that he had “manufactured multiple pistols and explosives so far,” public broadcaster NHK said.

    Cops said they also confiscated similar homemade weapons, as well as his personal computer during the raid.

    Other local reports said that he told cops he initially planned to blow up
    Abe, but decided to instead build a gun because he feared a bomb was less reliable.

    Police were seeing pulling homemade explosives out of the suspect’s home.

    It was seen on ground as the suspect, identified as 41-year-old veteran
    Tetsuya Yamagami, was tackled seconds after the fatal shooting.

    Abe suffered two deep gunshot wounds, including one in the neck.

    Military officials said Yamagami had been in the Maritime Self-Defense
    Force for three years — from 2002 to 2005 — and was “frustrated” with Abe.

    The shooting was particularly shocking in a country that prides itself on having some of the strictest gun laws in the world.

    Private citizens are barred from owning handguns, and licensed hunters may
    own only rifles — and even then only after attending classes, passing a
    written test and undergoing a mental health evaluation and background

    Shootings, when they occur, typically involve “yakuza” gangsters using
    illegal weapons. When mass killings do take place in Japan, as when 19
    people were murdered at a facility for mentally disabled people in 2016,
    they tend to be carried out with knives.

    Despite having a population of 125 million, Japan had just 10 gun-related criminal cases last year, resulting in one death and four injuries,
    according to police. Eight of those cases were gang-related.

    “Firearms legislation in Japan is very restrictive, so I think what we’re seeing here, with what’s probably a muzzle-loading weapon, is not just an attempt to circumvent the control of firearms, but also the strict control
    of ammunition in Japan,” said Jenzen-Jones, the arms investigations
