Imagine what he would have done with a bow and arrow.

clueless american right-wing morons have this really stupid notion that the scandinavian countries are all run by socialists, so therefore every time something bad happens in one of those countries, it proves that socialism is bad.

Also escaping these individuals are differences between Socialism and Democratic Socialism, as practiced in these Scandinavian paradises that are falling apart because of bow-and-arrow attacks.

I noticed that even politicians such as Sanders or AOC seem to be playing with this. Sometimes they clarify the distinction, sometimes they just accept being called Socialists. But what they propose is no Socialism.

There's even a difference in language. No one in Europe calls it Democratic Socialism. It's called Social Democracy (also not Socialist Democracy).

But all this ignores the real reason why that guy had to use bow and arrow of course: It's because Greta Thunberg and the radical environmentalism. You just can't fire a gun anymore, these days.

5 Wounded In Mass Shooting In Chatham
https://chicago.cbslocal.com/2021/10...cottage-grove/

CHICAGO (CBS) — Five people were wounded in a mass shooting Friday night in the Chatham neighborhood.
Police said a group of people was standing outside on the 800 block of East 79th Street around 8:45 p.m., when someone shot them and fled the scene.



3 Killed, 26 Wounded In Weekend Shootings Across Chicago
https://chicago.cbslocal.com/2021/10...lence-october/

This second sad story is long but deserves being read through. The only thought I'm trying to get across, other than this being a regular weekend in too many American cities, is that most of the violence isn't being done with AR-15s or similar semi-automatic rifles.

I don't claim to have any good answers, for sure. But handguns in the wrong hands is where the body count continues to be. Week after week and month after month.

Not to give you the partisan schpeel but getting guns out of the hands of bad guys is a perpetual cycle. They are only in their hands to take away because they’re available.

Get guns off the streets by stopping the sale so freely. Yes, violence with an AR-15 is in fact symbolic and when one crowd says get rid of them, it’s in fact a copout. It’s do-nothing action. We only need guns because people have guns.
