  •  I must have missed something. Where is your (0+ / 0-)

    information from that he wanted to kill exactly 20?

    •  He had the ability (0+ / 0-)

      The ability and the tool to kill many many more.  He stopped at 20.  Why did he stop?  My conclusion is that he decided that his mission was accomplished.  Otherwise, there would have been no reason not to continue.

      The other thing I am asserting as fact was that he would not have even have bothered going to a school if he could not have killed at least as many as he did.  A revolver would not have been satisfying - it simply would not have been as efficient.  Sure he could have shot up to six kids before reloading, but then he couldn't has shot each kid six or seven times each, assuring their demise.

      How do I know all this?  Because the gun used in this crime was invented for no other reason.  It is the purpose of this weapon to be able to kill (not shoot, but kill) as many people as possible without having to reload.  

      And the comment that he reloaded three times is beside the point.
