    Default Netherlands school attack

    Imagine how this would have ended if the attacker had an assault weapon.

    This last Tuesday a mentally-ill 44-year-old man went to a school wielding two knives. Obviously posing a threat, the students used their backpacks to scare off the attacker. The man, after being barraged by a volley of backpacks filled with heavy science books, promptly walked away from the school.”

    Imagine how this thread would have ended if that amazingly stupid comment hadnít been posted. I AM hurt by the degree of willful cognitive dissonance I see so proudly displayed.

    I also like that Holland doesnít allow its mentally-ill citizens to have assault rifles.

    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    Yes it was an attack but it was at a college. The students were 19 and 20. Backpacks were used as well as fists and boots.
    Good outcome.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.
