If this turns into an antigun topic I will close it immediately. This topic should not be about anything but the sorrow caused by the tragedy that just took place.

There are other venues for talk about guns, restrictions, etc here at BC.


:thumbsup: This is the second warning on this Topic. I doubt there will be a third.

I won't mention the "G" word again but I remember a story I read once about Papua New Guinea that I think is relevant to this tragedy. When the British and then the Australians started administering Western-style law in the early 20th century to the tribal people of eastern Niugini they had a lot of trouble. They just couldn't stop bloody massacres and the number of people killed in payback (vengeance) killings got higher and higher. A tribal chieftain bought to court for the killing of other tribal men explained it this way, "Before we only had stone axes. We could only kill one person at a time. You gave us steel ones. Now we can kill a lot more people at one time with steel axes; therefore, it is your fault more than our fault". There will always be violence and evil, but it's the tools used by violent or evil people that determines how much damage they do, Marg
