    American crazies, the individual can have access to much more deadly weaponry. So it takes just one, not a mob. Deal is, we sure seem to have more than our share of crazies (usually described as 'loners') who seem to believe the number of other humans they can take with them when they go somehow make a difference in their final destination.

    Or something. Don't understand how crazy people think, I've just noticed they all seem to have gone to the same crazy-school.

      is pretty similar across different societies. But in societies with strict gun laws, the crazies wind up collecting cats or empty spam cans or stacks of 'pre-approved' credit card applications.

      I think it only seems like we have more than our share because the empty spam can collectors don't wind up in national news as often, and they rarely hurt anyone, unless you count bringing down neighborhood property values.

      Even so, greedy 1% speculators did a lot more damage to neighborhood property values than crazies ever could.

        kid's entertainment at a mall big there. Lots of families and kids, didn't see any let-up in that, but people were definitely hanging on to those kids tightly and were paying attention to everything going on around them. Security was highly visible too, much more so than in the past but no one was complaining. I never shop at malls, only hang out in them while working, which is seasonal.

        What an awful, awful thing to happen during Christmas season. I hope we learn our lessons well this time, DO something about it for a change. It's a tragic loss of innocence as well as innocents.
