We should try to learn from history:
Yes, we should try to learn from history:
On May 18, 1927, Andrew Kehoe bombed an elementary school in Bath Township, Michigan, killing 38 children and 6 adults. He used a combination of dynamite and pyrotol.
The point I'm trying to make is twofold:
1) People can commit these kind of acts without any kind of firearms whatsoever. Rather than spending time, money, resources on costly and ineffective control measures, we should be spending this on identifying and treating individuals suffering from mental instabilities so they don't attempt this sort of act in the first place.
2) This sort of thing has happened for a long time. I'm certain some people are going to try and make a connection between this act and violent media, video games, refined sugar, etc, but the 1927 disaster indicates these things aren't always a factor in this sort of act.
