I don't have a lot to say about that Norway shooting spree, mostly because it is the act of a lone nutcase. There's not a great deal anyone can do about him and since he acted alone, the matter is at an end. That said, we can look at how someone managed to go on a 90 minute shooting spree.
You couldn't do that in my hometown. Somebody would shoot back. In fact, a lot of people would shoot back. Most shooting sprees tend to happen at schools, a place shooters know their targets are not allowed to have guns. I don't get involved with gun rights issues a lot, not being a gun owner myself, but I think this proves the saying true that if you ban guns, only the outlaws will have them. Not surprisingly, there are very few shooting sprees at NRA conventions, a lot more so at schools.
And 90 minutes because a socialist government couldn't find a helicopter? 82 people died in the meantime. I would rather have a gun at my side than wait for the police.
