No knee jerk reaction, spree killing that are the worst are when there is little to no resistance, like I said the Norwegin was only limited buy the number of rounds he had, if there had been someone of security be it a law officer or private citizen with a firearm on the premises the number killed on that island would have been much less, where talking well over 50%.
And not by just having to shoot him or being Rambo, the simple tactic of puting a few rounds his way would have cause him to take cover, that alone would have saved countless lives, or in the event he was completey nuts and didnt have take cover he would have risked being shot, also saving many lives !
No disrespect to you but we could go at this all day and I know better then to go into lenghty debates with you, agree to disagree on gun control as they say !
