    A tragedy! This could be homophobia or terrorism. Or possibly both:

    Strict gun laws did not stop it?

    Very sad for Oslo. My thoughts go out to the victims.

    Bad things happen in a country of 6 million people I'm afraid. It's nobody's fault but the individual himself. It's not the fault of legislators, it's not the fault of gun laws, it's not the fault of gun rights advocates, it's not the fault of those who dislike homosexuality.

    It's this one guy's fault. It's easier to accept when the perpetrator is in custody because there's someone to punish, but there's always the tendency for society to become the perpetrator in response to something like this and remove the rights of innocents.

    With Islamic extremists and Islamophobia in the mix the fallout can go in many directions:

    Open borders enable it. European liberals will find the way to justify it. Some cultures will never accept the western way of life.

    Thanks for clearing that up you mentioned something earlier and that's the first place in my mind went is this related to Islam I'm not sure if Oslo has a lot of anti-gay secularist sort Christians but some reason I would think that they wouldn't be too keen on this.

    Norway with it's strict gun laws is still far more safe then the US. Nowhere does it say that such things would never happen, while the bottom line is that their gun policies work far better. Cops there don't usually carry a gun even!

    And the borders aren't open.

    Because Iran has nothing to do with it / his ethnic background is irrelevant. It's like hearing... "nobody mention that the killer is a Jew (again)". Rather racist, no?

    The guy is a Norwegian citizen. His mother said her kid was diagnosed being a paranoid schizo, and has it's known that he has a background of being a druggy and he got an extensive history of being a petty criminal. You can go from there. And I know, it must be hard to look beyond his ethnic background.

    So you're admitting the gun laws will not stop the mass shooters but will only place further infringements upon the law-abiding

    That's why immigrants from exotic places every now and then turn on LGBT communities across the European continent. Their parents teach them at home to throw them off the high buildings or stone them to death. It's perfectly normal for them to kill them.

    And the democrats and their supporters never talk about it. Literally, like we aren't paying any attention to those killings, it ain't happening. Beggars belief.

    The Oslo incident would not even be considered a mass shooting in A,pmerica because only 2 people were killed

    The reason why the Oslo incident was reported on was it was a RARE incident
