    In the country of my birth, guns were not prohibited, nor were they immensely popular.

    This kind of thing still played out routinely. I remember one particular incident where the wife beat the husband to death with a large metal fireplace-poker, and some others where steak-knife stabbing frenzy was the chosen method.

    Er, fuck guns, BTW. I don't give a shit one way or another, but as long as it's a knee-jerk to treat guns as a significant factor (or steak-knives or pokers) we miss the point.

    The point is "blah-blah-blah and there was violent murder". and "now, how do we address the norms that drive people to violent murder?"

    Costas offers this drivel

    What I believe is, if he didn’t possess/own a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.
    without any motivation.

    What? A mega-athlete who could probably kill 99% of people on earth with his bare hands needs a gun to kill his wife? WTF? This passes for logical commentary? It's idiotic
