I don't understand how this could happen! France has gun laws!

Actually, France isn't all that disarmed. Not to the extent that the British are, at least.

With the risk of sounding narcissistic, is 2 all he can do? Total fail for a "mass" shooting.

France bans or restricts everything but hunting rifles...

Why is a man who shoots at people with a rifle always referred to by the media as a "sniper"? I thought being a sniper involved extensive tactical training, not just being a nut who kills 2 people in a "mass shooting"

If you have a handgun or shotgun, you're a "gunman" (even if female evidently). By the way, in this word defined by the media, where is the pronunciation emphasis, on the "gun" or on the "man" in "gunman"?

If you have a rifle, you're a "sniper".

I think you have to hide from your target to be a sniper.

How about we not use a tragedy in the news to trumpet our own personal pet issues?

It's low-class and the sort of thing I would expect to see Tom Diaz do.
