[quote:Spine monkey:MV8yMDk0NTI3XzM1MjY2NDczXzlCMTExNTEz] No, for someone like Adam Lanza, I think it was a desire to destroy something he never had been, was or could be: the kind of child that other people loved and appreciated. Or perhaps since he knew his mother was going to put him in a mental institution, he wanted to wreak vengeance against society, and planned that, should he be in danger of being caught and judged by society, he would commit suicide. I don't think suicide was his motive. Suicidal people lack the motivation to get out of bed many times. To think that someone who wanted to just end it all would go through all of that trouble is a little hard to believe. Now if he had just grabbed his rifle and a couple of mags and run to a busy intersection and started firing at cars and cops, then I would say he was suicidal. No, I think the motive was a big "Screw You" to--to his mother, his town?? I don't know. But that was one methodically rage-driven person. He would have tried to kill those children with a vehicle or a molotov cocktail or a simple handgun. Remember that the Dunblane killing in Scotland was worse-26 kids, I think--and was all done by a guy with a handgun. [/quote]
So I have been thinking about this since Newtown. Here is my theory. The shooters are suicidal
but lack the motivation and guts
to actually commit suicide.
So they do something so awful and so unforgivable like killing children. Then they are left with no choice to go through with the suicide
and if they chicken out they can just fire on a cop and know they will be shot and killed.
Just for the record, I am an avid gun collector as of 2 years ago. I own several assault rifles and know that a ban would do nothing. I support arming and protecting our schools.
