This is a strange one. Doesn't seem like someone gone postal or someone who was a social misfit. Can it really be someone confusing reality and a Batman character? It will be interesting when they piece together his background.
At the moment it just seems like a guy gone crazy. I am not interested in a debate, I don't think the US has a monopoly on crazy people, but I have to conclude the US gun laws allow people to acquire these piles of guns with ease.
i'd love to see you as interested in knowing the background and causes of the ones who blow themselves up in the middle east. but oh wait, they're just arabs riddled with hatred, right? no need to check their motives, then.
you're correct about the last part, though. lenient gun laws make it far too easy for this kind of people to get guns. then again, guns are part of the american culture so it's a tricky issue. i say this with no sense of irony. if the americans want to keep their traditions, they should be well aware of the costs and that means more innocent deaths caused by gun accidents and deliberate attempts to kill others, like in the case exposed in this thread.
