Bow and Arrows don't kill people, people kill people
There has always been a vigorous debate about the necessity of campus gun control laws, especially after the Virginia Tech massacre in which the shooter killed 32 people and wounded 15.
A tragedy highlights the point that gun control opponents make, that it is the person and not the weapon that is the real issue.
A man killed a woman near a community college in Casper, Wyoming, before killing a male teacher and himself in front of a class full of students, according to police.
The ABC news affiliate in Casper reports that police say the attack at Casper College occurred while class was in session.
What we can find is that the individual that committed the violent acts was not a student at the college, but that there was a known relationship between [the victims], said Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh at a press conference on Friday afternoon.
The Police Chief later clarified that all three had known each other. Police say the killer was not a current student at Casper College. Walsh could not confirm that the suspect was a former student, either. Walsh added that there were no records that could have tipped off authorities to any kind of threat. Walsh said no firearms were used during the homicides, and rather said that edged weapons were involved.
However, multiple students told K2 News that some kind of a bow-and-arrow weapon was used. Walsh later emphasized that following the attacks no suspects were at large and there (are) no threats of random violence.
Wyoming ABC affiliate K2TV has further details, which include the fact the suspect killed the woman on a street near campus before heading to the college and killing a male faculty member and himself in a classroom in the World Science Building.
Bob Costas refuses to acknowledge this factual reality.
Bob Costas, please call your office.
“Edged Weapons” is an interesting name for bow and arrow.
Yeas ago a punk kid near my hometown killed his father with an arrow.
If people would only have sex with a spouse a lot of this misery could be avoided.
But Christie at the beach would say that is Neanderthal of me. People should be able to have sex whenever and with whoever they want
Dreaded “assault” bow & arrow?
I read somewhere both a knife and B&A were used.
Somewhere, Chuck Schumer sits greatly disappointed.
It appears that, like me, you’ve interpreted this situation as a “love” triangle: the woman was having an affair with the male teacher, the killer was the woman’s husband or boyfriend.
“Free love” never works out the way visionaries imagine it will ... most people want exclusivity, if only from their partners rather than themselves.
“if only from their partners rather than themselves.”
true, they can mess around but their partner can’t. But the liberal mantra is that having sex is as good as life gets so bang away at will (will is lovin’ it). Like bunnies, or dogs, sex is the ultimate. Completely dulls humanity
The guy who committed the murders was from Connecticut .
According to our local news he went to WY, killed his dad’s live-in girlfriend, then killed dad in front of dad’s class of college students by firing an arrow into dad’s head. Then he killed himself
According to the news, the reason why he killed dad was because he, the son, had Aspergers syndrome and he wanted to stop dad from reproducing.
Obviously, the son had some issues.
Shoot the arrow into the air and run underneath it?
The mechanics of a “bow and arrow suicide” escape me...
Rube Goldberg, pick up the white courtesy phone.
I believe he killed himself with a knife.
I blame The CW and their new series, Arrow.
A few years ago we had a murder-suicide in our area that was done with a machete.
Don’t want to know the gory details of how the guy offed himself with a machete.
Well hells bells, time to ban bow and arrows?
“... if people would only have sex with a spouse”.
Uhhh, any spouse? (I’m just messing with you, yldstrk)
Will Bob Costas now call for banning bows and arrows, too?
