I won't attempt an answer for believers. For other people, it can be therapy.

Condolences indeed to the Finnish people, specially friends and family of victims.

This is the second shooting attack in less than on a Finnish educational institution; first time there were 8 victims. Apparently the shooter posted a video on YOUTUBE 5 days ago showing him practice shooting.

Another very tragic and sad situation. I had no idea that guns were so easy to come by in Finland. My prayers are for those that were killed and all their loved ones.

very sad. we need to stop being in denial over this problem in europe. living in fantasy land that this is just another country's problem will just ensure that our problems get worse.
