This is actually an article about Canadian gun control but I couldn’t resist these quotes…
Here he is again, the loser with a grudge and a gun slithering up from the basement of a middle-class home where he fermented his immaturity, anger and resentments to full and deadly potency “interacting” with like creatures on the Internet.
His mom says he was “a good son.”
The neighbours’ comments — the banality of this would be screamingly funny were it not for the horror of the event — amount to this: He was quiet and kept to himself.
Aren’t they always.
His resentment and anger are perfectly understandable.
He’s a loser and losers spend their lives being angry and resentful.
It’s one of the reasons they’re losers. Life is something that happens to them. They aren’t something that happens to life.
They aren’t achievers.
Worst of all, he knows he’s a loser, but failing the courage or will to do something about it and actually change, he decides to write his name in the pages of our times with gunfire, and paint a final statement with the innocent blood of students — young people working toward successful futures.
His victims are everything he is not.
The ultimate proof he’s a loser: His final statement, his final moments in life are desperately unoriginal. Just another loser in a long list of losers. The perpetrators of Columbine and Taber and all the others.
He was 25 years old.
Who among us is still so much an angry adolescent at 25?
He’s a loser baby, and somebody killed him.
Don’t be a loser.
