This still stands as the worst school disaster in US history. It happened in 1927. No gun just dynamite, which one purchased down at the local hardware store.
I’ve read about this before. A determined killer will use whatever they can including dynamite, machetes, swords, molotov cocktails, etc.
Firearms are just one method and if the killer does not have that available he/she will find something else, maybe worse.
Interesting stuff on rootsweb. What is most interesting is what’s missing: no questions on who manufactured the dynamite or sold it to the whack-job.
As I dropped my kid off at school this morning I looked down the line of buses when there was literally hundreds of kids all walking down the long sidewalk to the front door of the school at once. I had a chilling thought then, anyone with a big car could have easily surpassed this death toll by simply getting up to a high rate of speed, turning, and driving down that walkway from behind them.
Sick thinking I completely admit, but would Ford or Chevy be sued or condemned if someone used one in a mass murder of kids?
Didn’t think so either, but I bet their would be some idiot liberal claiming that had the psychopath only been driving a Smart Car, the death toll would have been much lower...
