A 30-year-old Russian man has shot dead six of his colleagues at a pharmaceutical company in Moscow.
Dmitry Vinogradov was granted access to the building as he worked at the firm as a lawyer.
He changed into camouflage gear and armed himself with two semi-automatic rifles, before shooting dead four men and two women at their desks. Another woman was wounded.
Following the rampage, Vinogradov gave himself up to security guards.
It is believed the lawyer had gone on a five-day drinking binge after being jilted by an ex-girlfriend - a pharmacist at the company.
At a court hearing for the case, Vinogradov said, "I didn't see another way out," and added: "I want to ask for forgiveness."
The judge ruled to detain the suspect for two months and gave the prosecution two months to present their case.
The “it’s all about me mentality” exists throughout mankind. Horrible things happen when this mentality meets mental illness and/or rage.
The reaction of many will be to blame the tool instead of the dark soul that wielded it. They seek to childproof the world instead of nurturing children into responsible adults.
MEMO TO SELF: Avoid dating pharmacist chicks.
It may be laughable to hear but right now after this massacre the most liberal of Russian media outlets are screaming Russian government has to follow US example of banning assault firearms for general public.
Isn’t it quite shocking to see America viewed as a progressive example to follow for gun control freaks in once the most communist nation?
I’m not shocked. Liberals always transfer the blame.
