The shooter, and ONLY the shooter.
You can't blame other people when one person decides to go evil. We're all ultimately and solely responsible for the choices we make.
No, even without the Chinese invention of gun powder (assuming someone else didn't invent it), we would still have lots of ways to kill each other.
A well trained and practiced swordsman can probably actually kill/injure more people per minute than most people can with a gun, even with a semi-auto. He just has to get closer is all and he doesn't have to stop and reload. Anyone up for Kendo classes?
Interesting that in our society we have the term "Axe-Murderer" but not "gun-murderer". hmm.
Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
