    Yup! It sounds like that guy did just that with confirmation of his misguided thoughts. I feel like it's hard for anyone else to prevent similar series of events when people voluntarily place themselves in precarious positions because it's irrational to expect anyone other than the unstable loner to spot the unstable loner. Don't get me wrong; it's possible, but what can people do other than support a gun control clause? If this man only had access to a semiautomatic weapon, he probably wouldn't have even bothered to execute his plan.

    I dont know, dick could've done plenty of damage with a sword or knife. When I was younger I remember some asshole planning to "get even" with his school by taking a flame thrower he'd created from a fire extinguisher and going on a rampage there, now this guy had left the school something like twenty years earlier, there was shit of a chance any pupils or teachers would be the same as the ones there when he attended but it didnt matter. He invaded the place during exams and burned the crap out of a bunch of kids before being chased away or taken down by teachers, I dont remember which. Good luck banning that as he invented the piece of crap. Improvised it. I'm betting the boobytrapped apartment is improvised devices, which you cant really ban either.

    This is just one of those things, not sure there is an answer, it'd be great if we had the sorts of interaction opportunities of the fifties but then we had full employment, poverty and nothing like the diversions for sale there are for sale today.

    Well then I guess we're back at square one. The difficulty is always essentially personal... Let's reach out and touch someone!

    Does anyone have any live updates? First I dont know if the guy was apprehended or died at the scene, what's the story there? Also did they get into his apartment or just blow it up in a controlled explosion? If this guy is alive is he likely to be executed in this state or spend his life as bubba's bitch in some lock up?

    Well, you are the second person today who has asked similar questions. Maybe it was just momentary rage and and I couldn't find a knife so I lashed out at you.

    I watched some news coverage on it briefly. I had to turn it off for good because the journalists are just relentless in their attempts to sensationalize it. Anyways, I saw the mayor speak and he called the killer, I believe, "an abomination against nature". That irked me for some reason. Thoughts?

    Other than the obvious one, my other problem with this is that people brought children to a midnight showing of this. I mean FFS, a 3-month old????!?!?

    That's dramatic. An "abomination agaisnt nature" would be dropping atomic bombs on civilians because of a stubborn government. Or the heaps of trash out in the middle of the Pacific ocean.
