Kehoe, 55, was school board treasurer. According to the Wikipedia:
On the morning of May 18, Kehoe murdered his wife by beating her to death, then set his farm buildings on fire using incendiary devices. As fire fighters arrived at the farm, an explosion devastated the north wing of the school building, killing many schoolchildren. As rescuers started gathering at the school, Kehoe drove up, stopped, and detonated a bomb inside his vehicle with his Winchester rifle, killing himself and the school superintendent, and killing and injuring several others. During rescue efforts searchers discovered an additional 500 pounds (230 kg) of unexploded dynamite and pyrotol planted throughout the basement of the school's south wing. Kehoe apparently had intended to blow up and destroy the whole school.
They say Adam Lanza was a bright kid. I wonder if he'd heard of Kehoe. Adam, when you arrive in Hell, prepare to be outclassed!
There’s tons of examples where mass murder was committed by ways other than using guns. Besides of course 911, there was the Happy land fire in 1990 which killed 87 people.
One guy and a can of gasoline. Oh yes, then last year one lovely individual decided to burn to death a woman in an elevator....
Not mass murder, but it shows that if somebody wants to kill someone and they don’t have a gun, that isn’t going to stop them. The whole argument by 2nd Amendment infringers is based on the thought that gun control will stop murder which is absolutely absurd. If anything, gun control gets people killed. Nobody in the school is allowed to have a gun, so the mass killer kills completely unopposed, not just this shooting, but at Columbine and Virginia tech.
The shooter was excited by the attention recieved by the Columbine shooters. They were goth like him.
