    Sounds pretty cool.

    I have a feeling this thread is headed for a gun argument.

    I can see how this would work well for Switzerland. Wouldn't work here.

    Everything is a gun argument these days! But you're right in that it wouldn't be plausible here.

    And why shouldn't it? Seems like this should be a hot national topic, right?

    Strange that more details aren't coming out about this.

    The police did not release any details about the gunman or a possible motive for the shooting, beyond raising the prospect of terrorism. One law enforcement official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the killer was a 40-year-old white man.

    And weird, that piece I quoted from the NY times article was edited within the last couple of minutes.

    The police did not release any details about the gunman or a possible motive for the shooting, beyond raising the prospect of terrorism. Thomas Ahern, a spokesman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said the killer was a 40-year-old white man.
