Probably a similar white supremacy problem, to the one we are fighting here in the US.

their last mass shooting with a gun killed 77.

This is the point of gun control, it doesn't prevent terrorists, just reduces the number of deaths substantially.

The country's police directorate has ordered all officers nationwide to carry firearms as an extra precaution.

Not really.  They have to use a calendar to track mass shootings.  We have to use a stopwatch.

Kids and their damn video games like *checks notes* BowHunter 3D.  Wait, that can't be right.  Skyrim?  Mordhaul?  Tomb Raider?  Hmm, there has to be some game they played and instantly became skilled at the real-world analog.

Myk-House of El: If they need something on the non-lethal side...

[c.tenor.com image 498x278]


Why does it need to be a boxing glove?  Seems a generic round-ish ball would work just as well.
Which is to say not at all.  Something heavy enough to cause enough concussive force to knock someone out would be extremely front heavy and wouldn't fly for shiat.

With a population of 5.5 million people, it's hard to find enough people in one spot to be considered a mass shooting.

Norwegians also still commemorate that one annually and remember it as an enormous national tragedy.

Lambskincoat: Probably a similar white supremacy problem, to the one we are fighting here in the US.


No one seems to know what was in the guy's head at this point, but I doubt it. Shooting up an Extra doesn't seem very white supremacist, and Kongsberg is a relatively affluent town with a higher percentage of ethnic Norwegians than the national average.
