This is pure conjecture -- but in this country, of course there is something so specific about the gun mentality and what guns mean. And there's the power and efficiency and the detachment they provide.

So this guy who just killed all the people in the church -- I seriously doubt he would have used a bomb or driven up on a sidewalk etc.

I think this is especially true when there's no ideology behind it -- it's just about going out in a big way, guns blazing, and taking as many people with you as possible.

That's the fantasy -- including getting your hands on the guns and ammo etc. and going through it in your mind. Could be wrong, but think it's unlikely that this kind of person would live it out with a car or truck or a bomb made out of a pressure a cooking pot...
