    An absolute tragedy. But what is there to discuss really?

    Whether he was left or right, we can all agree he was a shit merkin. Shouldve just ended himself.

    He had legal handguns. Maybe he wouldn't have been able to kill his kids if he had to do it some other way.

    The only thing notable was the age difference. If my calculations are right she was 21 when she had their first kid, he was 53. Got married the year before that. Make of that what you will.

    It's just rather sad mate.

    There isn't much else to say at this point in time.

    Perhaps it might be better to consult you tube for an answer?

    These “kill the kids then kill myself” types tend to get the job done with whatever they have around the house. The gun made it easier/quicker, but I doubt not having one would have stopped him.

    Look at that asshole who drove his kids into a lake, or the various mothers that just smother their kids or drown them in the bathtub.

    To be fair no one seems interested in talking about the thousands of regular old shootings that occur in the US between the occasional mass shootings either

    It’s difficult to say anything in relation to a father taking out his own kids in relation to custody/relationship breakdown.

    What could have been done to prevent this one?

    No its really the same.

    Inner city shootings might be more of a distraction tbh because there is a lot going on there outside of easy access to firearms. Where at least terrorism in the islamic world has mostly the same goal. When a kid shoots up a school it is completely different to gang violence in chicago and one would have to be a dull witted clod to even compare the two.

    I guess both are a sign of a deeply sick culture

    Without a helluva lot more detail, I don't believe there is a reasonable answer to this.

    It's inconvenient for the argument that Howard's gun laws stopped shootings here
