Perhaps a bit off topic, but I've known them or been at the scene of three shootings - the 1st "going postal" killer, 101 Cal and Llanza. With the exception of Pat Sherrill, and I think this applies to the better majority of mass shooters, neither Luigi nor Llanza ( Llanza had some practice) were proficient with firearms. They get to do their damage and seem invincible because they're the only person with a gun. I'm not suggesting I'd like to face them with a Smith 36 and no speed loaders, but with 20/20 hindsight that and modest training is all it would have taken to stop them.

Whether it's human nature or a society encouraged by the media, we tend to want the balance of much carnage being done by a person of greater capabilities. It creates a certain inevitability to the act, a fatalism that it was unavoidable and no one could have stopped it. Rather than the reality which is these are mostly incompetent, mousy little individuals who could have readily been stopped with modest effort.
