Peter Hitchens' thoughts on the British shooter
"The truth s that until 1920, Britain’s gun laws were so relaxed they made Texas look effeminate, but we had virtually no gun crime. That only really began to increase here after we abolished hanging.
But that truth doesn’t fit the Leftist dogma which has everyone, including the Tories, the media and the police, in its grip, so the facts will be ignored.
What can we learn from the Cumberland murders? Well, first of all that the police are no use to anyone once a crime has been committed. They never were and they never will be, except if they can do first aid."
Of course, here's a more typical response: "Evil Lurks In All of Us". Not really. What you're usually looking at in this situation is a violent and extreme narcissist. The combination of enormous ego and inner self-hate explains multiple murders for no reason (playing God, as it were) with suicide at the end.
Hitchens is awesome. About to read his new biography, Hitch-22.

And then he goes off on anti-depressants the way the antis go off on guns. It was funny, in a sad sort of way...
