A Geek Was Role-Playing, Took a Rifle Toy Gun into the Courthouse

All I want to say to THIS is: are you, FUCKING (don’t pardon me here!) STUPID!!!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The twenty-year-old male, Su, yesterday morning, took a TOY rifle walked several kilometers to the Chiayi Local District Courts, told the guards “I want to go in for a tour!”, passed the security checks, left the toy gun in the care of the bailiffs, spent about five minutes in the lobby, then, left with the gun; the members of the local community saw him carrying that rifle out, they were thrilled, and notified the police, and eight hundred meters away from the courthouse, the police caught him in front of a super convenience store, took him in for inquiries, and, sent him to the D.A.’s office on threatening behaviors in the public, the D.A. interrogated him, and sent him back home.

The gun that Su had with him, was found to NOT have any killing powers, the court evaluated, the local district courts told, because the man was more than compliant, and considering how the court house is an open-to-the-public place, after he’d passed the security checks, they’d allowed him inside, that in the future, if similar situations were to occur, the guards are going to be more thorough, more careful, and have the local police officers to help out.

here’s what a TOY rifle looks like…

Based off of understanding, two years ago, Su bought the toy rifle for $6,000N.T.s, he’d wanted to go out for exercises, and role play a little, it was the first time he’d taken that toy rifle “out for a walk”, the label on the gun barrel said, “low motion toy gun!”, and is activated by air.

Yesterday, Su put on a hat, with the toy rifle, exited from his home, his older sister saw, tried to persuade him out of bringing the toy gun out, about a little past eleven in the morn, he’d walked a couple of kilometers from his residence, to the Chiayi District Court, complied with the security checks, and, have the security keep his toy rifle, stayed around on the first floor lobby of the courthouse for about five minutes, took his gun with him, continued walking east on Lingseng E. Road, then turned left onto Dong-Yi Road.

As the police were called, they’d rushed to the district courts, and not found Su, they’d tracked him through the street surveillance cameras, an at around one in the afternoon, they’d stopped him at a super convenience store on Dong-Yi Road, Su didn’t resist arrest, claimed, “it’s not illegal to walk with a toy rifle down the streets!”, denied having the intent to cause harm to the general public.

Su’s mother told, that after her son dropped out of middle school, he’d become, a stay-at-home geek, rarely headed outside, and he’d logged online to watch the war films, loved collecting the guns, and the rifle he took out, she’d paid for; in recent years, her son had slept through the daytime, and stayed up through the nights, suffered from a sleep disorder, that he was being treated at a psychiatric clinic, and had his meds regularly, and is in therapy.

The police found two witnesses, and the bailiff from the courts to testify, that how he was misconstrued for carrying a real weapon, and the members of the public felt, threatened and afraid.  The C.E.O. of the Chiayi Attorney’s Guild, Chen believed, that there would be need for evidence of how Su behaved in a threatening way, then, Su would get convicted for breaking the laws on social order.

and here’s, a REAL one…

comparing to the previous photo, can anybody tell the difference??? Photo from online

And the takeaway “brownie point” for this one is???  Oh yeah, don’t be STUPID, and BRING that life-like TOY gun to the public, because other than Y-O-U, the one who’s, bearing that “FALSE arms”, nobody ELSE knows, that wow, that air or BB gun or rifle looks, so much like the real thing, and we should, all???  DUCK!  When we see someone, walking down a street with that!

Biden Asks for Stricter Gun Control Laws: Gun Violence Had Brought Shame to the U.S.

This would be necessary, to put stricter controls on gun ownership, you do realize that, don’t you, especially, in light of the recent shooting happenings in America, and yet, those members of the N.R.A, supporters of the SECOND AMENDMENT rights are gonna, start, wailing super, duper loud now!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

As the mass shootings and murders occurred continuously in the U.S., President Biden issued the first wave of laws on stricter gun control, including the ghost guns, and assigned Chipman who’s supportive of gun control laws as the head of ATF, Biden claimed that gun violence had become an “epidemic” in the U.S. and had brought shame to the reputation of the country internationally already.

On the eighth, Biden signed six gun control executive orders at the Rose Garden.  He stated that he wasn’t breaching the Second Amendment rights of the people, “what those deceitful saying wanted us to do, is to endanger the rights of the second amendment, but I’d not changed any of the clauses of the second amendment whatsoever.”

members of the public that support strict gun control laws…photo from online

“It’s awkward, how people are saying what we’re doing is against the constitution”, Biden said it straight, the problems of gun violence is a matter of national emergency, an epidemic, causing $280 billion economic loss per year; in the midst of all of these laws, he’d called out to both parties of the Congress to resolve the problems with guns on the legislative front, claimed that this problem isn’t party-related.

The cases of violence involving guns are prevalent in the States, Colorado, Georgia, and the most recent, in California, the Democrats pressured Biden and his cabinet to find ways to resolve, and, Biden’s actions today, is far off from the promises he’d made from before the election, this also showed, how the President has only limited control over the matter of gun control; the WH reiterated that the issue should be resolved through amending the constitution, while the House of Representative passed the enforced background check, but the Democrats being the minorities, this doesn’t look good that the bill is going to get passed.

The measures that Biden proposed mostly came from the justice department, the head of the justice department, Garland who was attending the discussion session told, that the newest amendment included the control over the “ghost guns”, ghost guns are the gun parts bought legally, then assembled by the consumers into a weapon, these guns don’t have serial numbers and when used in a crime, it would be hard for the justice department to track down; the Department of Justice will propose the legislations of control over “ghost guns”, and within sixty days, set up the laws in regards to the control of the usage of the gun barrel, the device allows the handguns or short rifles to shoot like rifles, the gun was used in the shooting in Colorado, caused serious damages in number of deaths and injuries; at the same time, to provide more data for the gun smuggling ring as well.

and on the other side of the “fence”…

Biden also appointed the Red Flag legislation to be suggested to the states, so the states can set up the red flag laws on gun ownership on their own, this law allows for temporarily disarming of weapons that can cause oneself or others serious bodily harm.

Also, Biden had named Chipman, who’d worked as a bomb expert in the ATF for twenty-five years as the head of ATF.  AFT is a part of the justice department, responsible for taxing the guns, the tobaccos, the arms, and to enforce the laws on such, but since 2015, there hadn’t been a set candidate to lead the department, and, the nominees didn’t pass the votes in the House since, which suggested, that the parties are having a hard time agreeing on the laws for gun control.

And that, is how this law of GUN-CONTROL is still, DEAD in the waters, because AMERICANS are all about our rights, when your rights might impede someone else’s right to life, but we the people don’t C-A-R-E, we just want to own guns, because, it’s our, SECOND Amendment rights, and Biden is going to have a HELL of a time, getting his legislation on stricter gun control laws passed all right!

The Prevalence of Mass Shootings in U.S. the Resolve of Guns without Solutions in America

Yeah, uh, BLAME it on the SECOND AMENDMENT, and all you, NRA fanatics here!!!  Off of the Front Page Section, translated…

On the twenty-second, a large-scale massacre happened at a Colorado supermarket, resulting in at least TEN dead, this was the SEVENTH larger-scaled massacre so far this year.

This was also, the SECOND large scale massacre that got the world’s attention in America in a week’s time.  The massage parlor shootings on the sixteenth of this month in Atlanta, Georgia by the suspect, Long, of the eight who’d died, six were, Asian females, and this had caused the protests to happen across America with the Asians in the community marching in protest against hate crimes.

Based off of USA Today, Associated Press, and the data collected by Northeastern University, the supermarket shooting in Colorado is the SEVENTH large scale massacre since the start of this year.  The database defined the massacres as other than the shooters, there are more than four deaths.

CNN reported, in this past week, there were large-scale massacres every single day, other than the eight deaths in the Atlanta shooting, Stockton, California, Houston and Dallas of Texas, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in the past few days, there were the massacres of more than five deaths ongoing, thankfully, those who were shot were mostly, not fatally wounded, only two had died.

In the past decade, within a hundred kilometers radius, of where the massacres at Round Rock, Colorado, there were the multiple shocking murders locally.  Back in 1999, Columbine High School which was only fifty-kilometers away, had the massacres of a total of fifteen fatalities, and twenty-four wounded including the two shooters.  In 2012, a man took a gun into the theatre as the Batman Premiere was showing, and started shooting at random, causing twelve deaths, seventy wounded.

“We the People”…WANT GUNS!!!

In America, gun is too easily accessible, this is one of the primary reasons for these larger-scale massacres.  The Washington Post reported, the shooter, Long of the Atlanta Massage Parlor massacre picked up a gun at the gun shop on the day he started on his shooting rampage, and, the background checks at the arms shop were only formalities, there’s no waiting to confirm if the licenses were valid, gun is given out by the store, and he took it, and headed straight to the massage parlor.

On the twenty-third, the Senate held an emergency hearting, discussing the two large-scale shootings that happened in the week, along with the matters of gun control.  The group that demanded a tougher law on gun ownership pointed out, that from 2009 to date there’d been, 246 cases of large-scale shootings, in just Colorado, on average, there are 805 people who’d died from gun violence per year.

And yet, the second amendment protected the rights of citizens from owning guns, and whenever the subject of gun control came up for discussion in the Congress, the Republicans who are in support of the Second Amendment Rights would fight it, even if the polls showed, that the supporters of both parties are onboard with the gun control laws now.

And so, this, became, a NATIONAL matter, and yeah, it is, the American citizens’ rights to OWN arms, sure, but, sometimes, guns are too easily got, you don’t even need to get thoroughly checked for any violent crimes records, you just need to get that license, which is bought with money, and you can, own one, and, you’re still, in support of your, SECOND Amendment rights?  Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the “Stand-Your-Grounds” law, but, guns are too easily accessible in America, which is precisely WHY, mass shootings are happening all over the country right now.

He Went Hunting in the Nighttime, and Accidentally Shot His Own Uncle

Mistaking the shiny headlights as the shiny eyes of the flying squirrel they were, out on the hunt for, it was an accident, but the two men were, hunting without a valid hunter’s license, so they are caught and will get fined, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The man, Wang, of the Bunon Tribe and his nephew, Shi, at one in the morning yesterday, both took a homemade rifle, drove to hunt in the county across from where they lived, Shi accidentally shot his uncle’s headlights, thought it was a flying squirrel, causing his uncle to get shot in the head, and in critical condition, the local police substation took Shi into custody.

Wang (age 69), after being shot in the head by the rifle, he was rushed to the surgeries through the night, as the surgeons managed to take out the bullet fragments, he’s still in critical condition, is still in the I.C.U. for observations right now; the police said, the natives’ uses of altered rifle broke the laws of arms, and that the two men hadn’t applied to hunt locally, they are both, going to, get fined too.

Shi (age 55) claimed, that they parked their car at the 93rd kilometer marker of the Alishan Highway, they picked up the guns, and started shooting the flying squirrels and the muntjacs, he shot a flying squirrel, and his uncle and he went out with the lights on their heads, searching for the animal, his uncle was standing on the top of the hill, he was fifteen meters below where his uncle was, in the nights, he looked up at his uncle’s headlights, and mistook it for the flying squirrels, and shot him, he felt very sad that he’d, shot his uncle, thinking he was an animal he was hunting.

The head of the Hunters’ Association of the Zhou Tribe, Kao told, that the Alishan self-governing regions is the hunting grounds of his people, currently, it’s the breeding season for the wild hogs, the muntjacs, and during this time of breeding, you’d needed a valid hunting license to hunt there.

And so, this, is an accident, the man mistook his uncle’s headlight as the shiny eyes of the flying squirrel and fired at him, and, it’d injured his uncle, this just showed, how easy it is, to mistakenly shoot someone, and how you shouldn’t be hunting without a license, like these two men were doing.

The Worst in History, the Canadian Gunman Murdered Sixteen People

Massacre of innocent people all around, that shocked the local communities, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Suspect Falsified Himself as a Law Enforcement Official, Committed Arson First, Then, Gunned Down Those Who Tried to Escape, Went on a Shooting Rampage, Until He Was Finally Gunned Down by the Police

The police of Canada on the nineteenth stated, in Nova Scotia, a gunman in just twelve hours, gunned down sixteen victims continually, one of the victims who’d died was a female officer, this was the most serious of the larger scale massacre in all of Canada’s history.

The fifty-one-year-old gunman, Wortman was a dental technician who’d made the false teeth, has an office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, he has residences in Nova Scotia and Portapique, then, committed arson at the local community, and, shot the residents who were running out of their houses caught on fire, then, continued on his shooting rampage along the way.

The police stated, that there were bodies discovered in and out of a residence in Portapique, that the houses close by were all burned up, and, there were bodies found in the other locations too.

The police pointed out, that the gunman had opened fire at various locations, that he was finally, gunned down at a gas station in a standoff with the police north of the capital, Halifax.  Aside from the gunman, there were, a total of sixteen shooting victims who’d died.

The royal calvary of Canada officer, Bergman told, “This is a truly shocking day for everybody in Nova Scotia today.”

The police stated, that the gunman was wearing police uniform, driven a car that looked like a squad car, they believed he was alone in committing the shooting rampages, he’d driven across the northern part of the state, and committed multiple shooting murders.  The police are still trying to figure out the motive of his shooting, believed, that he may have a set target in mind, but, later he’d started shooting at random, and from how he’d worn the uniform of the police, the police believed he’d, planned the shootings, that it wasn’t on a whim.

The governor of Nova Scotia, McNeil stated, “This was one of the most pointless act of violence in the history of Nova Scotia, in trying to keep MERS-CoV contained, this was, a heavy burden on its own!”

And so, this just showed, how the accessibility of guns can, make these situation happen more frequently, and, for whatever reasons there may be for this man going gun-wild on the crowd, we don’t know, but one thing we do know is, that these sorts of incidents makes us fee less safe in our white-picket-fence neighborhoods, after all, it happened in the world, which means, it can, happen in the neighborhoods that we live in too!

There Had Been Forty-One Large Scale Massacres in the U.S., with the Media Slowly Stopping to Pay Attention, an All-Time High of Thirty-Three Cases, with the Media, Leveling Off Their Attention

What exactly, IS the cause of this “hike”, waive aside the second amendment rights, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

Before the year 2019 is about to be over, the Associated Press posted its statistic findings on massacres, and it showed, that the cases of larger scale massacres had reached an all-time high in American history, with the primary weapons of assault used being guns.

The large scale massacre, by definition, is a massacre of more than four deaths, not counting the shooter.  The old record was the thirty-eight cases back in 2006, and this year, there had been, forty-one large scale massacres across the U.S., with over 211 fatalities, and of these, thirty-three were gun related.

Although the large scale murders in U.S. had reached an all-time high this year, but the fatalities still fell short of 2017.  Back then, there were, 224 who’d died, the massacre at the concert in Las Vegas, was by far, the most serious massacre in U.S. history.

There’s, another trend, most of the larger-scale massacres are, no longer under the attention of the media anymore, unless, the murders happened in public, then, it would, get the needed, airtime.

The numbers also showed, that the shooters of these massacres knew their victims, and the motives of the shootings are usually related to family disputes, drugs, gang violence, or the conflicts between coworkers, and relatives and friends.  But there were, the motives of some cases that still need to get cleared, for instance, at the start of the year, a 42-year-old man from Oregon hacked his own mother, stepfather, his girlfriend, and nine-months-old young daughter to death, and was shot to death by the police, and, the police still can’t find the motives of his murdering his next-of-kin.

right to bear arms查看來源圖片image from online

Guns are the weapons that had caused the most number of deaths, and there were the hatchets, the machetes, and the arsons.

The professor of criminology from the University of Minnesota believed, that these large-scale massacres are, “contagious”, the more frequently occurring they are, there would be, more cases like them.

And so, violence breeds violence is what this showed, and, because there’s NO ban on the right to own gun (second amendment, anyone???), and, a lot of Americans are, gun-loving people, that’s why, there are, many cases, and especially now, how easily people crack, that’s why, there is, this influx of larger scale massacres this year.

Guns Fired Off Outside Texas A&M, Resulting in Two Deaths Ten Injuries

Tragedies that occurred, at a celebratory event, the homecoming party, and there were, fatalities, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

On the evening of the 26th in Texas, a man started shooting at random at a party close to the Texas A&M Commerce campus, causing at least two fatalities, ten injuries, the suspect is still at large.

The school made its public statement early morning on the 27th, that the shooting did NOT occur on campus.  The local police said, that the party seemed to have been hosted by a fraternity to bring in the new school year, they’re currently trying to confirm, fi there were students who were injured or killed, along with the motives of the shooter.

The local news station reporter, Whiteley stated, that this shooting occurred in a local night club, The Party Venue, in the suburbs, outside Glennville, close to Huntsville County, which is quite close to the Texas A&M in Commerce.

and here’s a video from the local news stations, from YouTube

The local sheriff’s department’s deputy chief stated, that there were about 750 people inside the night club, and that the homecoming party may have been hosted by a fraternity of the Texas A&M, but it wasn’t, a registered activity with the schools.

The spokesperson for the school, Johnson stated, “Our hearts go out to the victims of the shooting, we’re, praying for them”, and the statement also said, that Texas A&M is now, working hand in hand with the police locally to investigate the matter, to confirm if the students at A&M had been shot or not.  The police is currently investigating.

The police department of Texas A&M tweeted, that the shooting occurred outside the school, and that there may be students who attend A&M present at the time of the shooting, they’re, looking further into the matter right now.

The Party Venue’s FB page stated, that they only provided the space.  The owner of the night club stated, that the Business Department’s Fraternity had asked to rent out the space, to host a party.  And that something had, happened there.  But gave no more details.

The Dean of the Business Department of Texas A&M tweeted, that this was the weekend before the students were starting school, the local medical center told CNN earlier, that they did, receive the injured, but nobody provided the total number of people who’d been injured, nor the details of how the injuries had, occurred.

This may have been, yet, ANOTHER randomized shooting, and, that’s just it, the shooters, because they wanted to cause injuries, damages on a grander scale, are more than likely, to target these events, where there are, people who are, attending, like this particular, homecoming party, and that’s just it, the world became, more dangerous, because there are always going to be those, ticking time bombs, waiting to explode, and when the individuals were pushed to CRACK, this, is what happens, and it will, keep on happening, partially because gun is so accessible in the U.S.

In a Five-Car Chase, Guns Were Fired, the Bullets Ricocheted and Injured a Couple

Caught, in the crossfires, at the wrong place, at the wrong time! From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A couple in the midnight hours of last night, rode together on a scooter, waited for the lights to change in Sinchuang District of Hsinbei City, suddenly, guns went off, the couple were both, injured by bullets that ricocheted; the police chased the leads, and arrested five men including Lee, found that the two groups had, started chasing and gunning each other down on the streets, because, a member had, gone in to the wrong karaoke bar room, the police is currently, chasing other possible suspects.

At 1:56 in the morning last night, the thirty-one year-old man, Lin took his girlfriend, Jiang (age 23), waited for the lights at the MRT Chien-Zhuang Station, suddenly, the cars approached them from behind, then, three loud bangs, the five cars left one by one. Both of the couple felt that sudden pain, as they parked by the side of the road to check themselves, Lin’s thigh, and Jiang’s calf, were grazed by ricocheted bullets, they’d gone to the hospital to get treated, then, called the police.

The police reviewed the street surveillance, zoomed in on the cars, and started chasing them, in the karaoke bar located on Zhonghwa Road in Sinchuang, they’d, found the three men who were, driving in the cars, then, made two arrests later.

The preliminary investigations showed, that the shooting occurred, in the midnight hours of the 19th, after a fight broke out at the karaoke bar, the two parties met up for confrontation afterwards. The 23-year-old Lee, and four of his friends rode out on two cars to the confrontation, on the way, Lee found the three cars that belonged to the others, started chasing them, to the location where the shots were fired, the other car suddenly, opened fire three times as Lee was waiting for the lights, and, one of the bullets ricocheted off the pavement, and grazed the couple on the scooter, injured them both.

And so, the couple that were “shot” were, in the wrong place, AT the wrong time, and this still just showed, how there’s, a need, for stricter gun control laws, because you do NOT want people with guns, running loose, and shooting at each other, injuring, the innocent bystanders, would you? I wouldn’t, think so!

Trump Stated that the School Teachers Should Start Carrying Guns, the Parents Were Angered by His Statements

The PRESIDENT of the U-N-I-T-E-D S-T-A-T-E-S, had BLURTED something OUT, without having the THOUGHT run through his HEAD again, I’m afraid!!! And he still couldn’t, make UP his mind of which side to STAND at!!! With MY opinions on the matter inputted, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

In the seventeen deaths middle school shooting in Florida on the fourteenth, President Trump saw about forty students, teachers and parents on the twenty-first, including the six survivors of the shooting. They’d begged Trump to “Do something about it”, to prevent similar cases from happening repeatedly in school, Trump promised to have the stricter background checks for gun purchases, and even brought up the thought, of having the school teachers armed, to have the teachers also carry guns in the classes, but last year, a parent of the student who’d died in the Florida middle school shooting rebutted, “How many students need to die under a gun?”

gettng questioned on the policies he set up for gun control, photo from online…

In this nearly one-hour long meeting, Trump was focused in listening to the demands of the students and parents saying how the security needs to be reinforced in the schools, how there needs to be more drills, and to up the age of buying the weapons too. But Trump replied as he had before, that he was for owning a gun, to protect the people themselves, to SHOOT the shooters first.

The student who’d died in the shooting, Pollack’s father, Drew told Trump, that his daughter got shot NINE times then died on the day, “That is why I’m here”, he’d asked Trump, “How many schools, how many students need to be under attack? This needs to stop now. If there’s no change, I won’t ever stop.”

Trump stressed, in the future, “We will do a very strict background check, and focus on the gun purchasers’ state of mind,” he’d also mentioned, that it’s needed, for some of the school teachers, to train to use a gun, to scare off the possible shooters.

Trump said, “If the school teachers have the licenses to carry the concealed weapons, then, they will be trained, especially, and there wouldn’t be a gun-free zone in the schools.” Trump believed, that banning all guns from the schools will only worsen the matter, he said, “the gun prohibited zones means, ‘let’s go in and shoot everybody inside’.”

查看來源圖片here’s one, have a LAUGH, everybody, found online…

Trump said, take for instance, the Florida middle school shooting, “if there was a teacher trained to use gun, then, it’s easy, to disarm the shooter quickly.” But Trump also admitted, that it’s debatable, the thought, of having the school teachers bear arms.

And so, here, you can see, how this is all, the American President’s one-man-SHOW, he’d stated an idea, and, someone from the audience (a parent whose child had died) challenged his thought, Trump fended for his idea, and, then agreed, with the parents’ views on how it wouldn’t be SOUND, having the school instructors armed. And from this, we can see??? How easily businessmen change their minds, and, how AWFUL it’s gonna get, for the LAND of the FREE, to live under, “King TRUMP”!!!

After a Swiss Man Gunned Down His In-Laws, His Wife’s Younger Brother-in-Law, the Neighbor, He’d Committed Suicide

This, is TRULY SHOCKING, in ONE of the world’s HAPPIEST nations too!  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Happiest Country in the World Has Over a MILLION Guns

A thirty-six year-old Swiss man on the ninth, gunned down his parents-in-law, his wife’s brother-in-law, and a neighbor, then, committed suicide.  The police quickly ruled this incident out as a terrorist attack, but a domestic tragedy.  Just last month, Switzerland was voted as the “World’s Happiest Nation”, and, this murder-suicide had shocked the entire nation, and, some attributed the events to how guns are in excess.

The murder happened in the city of Verenigingen, close to Zurich, the suspect was a father of three, but he didn’t live with his family, the police said, that he didn’t have a license for a gun.  The suspect first, broke into a resident, gunned down his fifty-eight year-old father-in-law, fifty-seven year-old mother-in-law, and his thirty-two year-old brother-in-law, then, broke into another resident, gunned down a forty-six year-old neighbor, then, committed suicide.

The suspect had a prior in violence, lived alone in the state over.  He was under investigation, after a 2007 confrontation when he’d caused someone to get injured, and in 2012, he was arrested for using verbal threats on someone.  Before the murders on the 9th, the wife and children of the suspect had moved out, and entered into a shelter already.

Last November, a similar incident happened in Switzerland too.  And this time, this massacre had caused a huge ripple in the originally peaceful Switzerland, the local papers wrote: “Impossible, after all, we are the world’s happiest, richest country.”

Based off of estimation, there are a total of 4.5 million guns floating arou9nd in Switzerland, and the number of guns owned in Switzerland is among the tops of the world, second only to the U.S., Yemen, and Serbia.

And so, you have to wonder, even IF this was only an ISOLATED incident, why, is it, that the world’s happiest nation would own the greatest number of guns?  And, this, may only BE a dispute in the family that went wrong, but, it still raised concerns for the world.
