    Thanks for letting us know that, made my day.

    Surely if I want to read about things like this I can go to one of the many news web sites like the BBC.

    While it is an awful thing, do I REALLY need to know this?

    Does it effect me one way or another,that 15 people have been killed in Germany?

    I don't have a problem with this. This is the misc part of the forum where anything goes. You don't like it, go to a part of the forum that suits you. Thanks OP for letting us know about this tragic event. RIP to the pupils involved.

    Maybe so, but events of mass-murder of this nature, in very developed societies, particularly within the EU, are thankfully rare, so of course when such a tragic event does happen it is (and should be) major news...

    I'm sure we all remember how horrific Dunblane was, which thankfully led to pretty dramatic changes in gun-control - if anything 'good' can come from events like this it is a tightening of the rules which allow weapons designed to kill humans to exist in our society.

    Maybe the changes on the surface are for the good, but the only people it really affected was legal pistol owners, the type of lunatic to use a weapon to kill arent going to be bothered by it being illegal to own the weapon when there intent is so much worse, guns are just as easily available now as before on the underground scene,if I so wanted I could have a choice of guns within an hour or so.

    What you say is undoubtedly true (and worrying!) but regardless events of this nature have made rules & regs on gun ownership stricter and penalties more severe - I would hope that its getting harder for kids to get hold of guns (as appears to be the case here) but obviously its not something that can be eradicated completely, particularly when the arms industry remains so big thanks to the US...
