If the second amendment to the US constitution is anything, its misunderstood. But, thats a nother topic for another thread Just gonna put this out there as food for thought as many call for an outright ban on guns As for a view to a future free of assault weapons, consider the story from the past, below, wherein a psychopath indeed finds a way: Bath School disaster From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Bath School disaster Location Bath Township, Clinton County, Michigan, USA Date May 18, 1927 Target Bath Consolidated School, house, farm and wife Attack type School bombing, School shooting, mass murder, spree killing, murder-suicide, suicide truck bombing, shooting, fire, uxoricide Weapon(s) dynamite, firebombs, pyrotol, Winchester rifle, club Deaths 45 (38 children, 2 teachers, 4 other adults and the bomber) Injured 58 Perpetrator Andrew P. Kehoe Motive Foreclosure of farm due to taxes for school The state historic site marker placed on the site. The Bath School disaster is the name given to three bombings in Bath Township, Michigan, on May 18, 1927, which killed 38 elementary school children, two teachers, four other adults and the bomber himself; at least 58 people were injured. Most of the victims were children in the second to sixth grades (7–11 years of age) attending the Bath Consolidated School. Their deaths constitute the deadliest mass murder in a school in U.S. history and the third-deadliest non-military massacre in U.S. history, behind 9/11 and the Oklahoma City bombing. The bomber was school board treasurer Andrew Kehoe, 55, who died in a car bomb he set off after he drove up to the school as the crowd gathered to rescue survivors from the burning school. On the morning of May 18, Kehoe murdered his wife by beating her to death, then set his farm buildings afire. As fire fighters arrived at the farm, an explosion devastated the north wing of the school building, killing many schoolchildren. Kehoe used a detonator to ignite dynamite and hundreds of pounds of pyrotol which he had secretly planted inside the school over the course of many months. As rescuers started gathering at the school, Kehoe drove up, stopped, and detonated a bomb inside his fragmentation-filled 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.
