Spree shooting in Finland

Update: Now the AP is reporting five people dead. Also, the AP doesn't even have the fundamental knowledge needed to report accurately on the type of weapon used. Way to go guys.

What a horrible thing for Finnish families to have to endure. Four deaths reported so far, and the gunman is still on the loose.

There are not too many details on the shooter yet. It hasn't been confirmed that the suspect is even the right guy, not to mention the circumstances leading to the shooting, but the press is already all over the gun control angle.

Who would have thought that big box reporters and journalists were such gamblers. How about waiting for some facts guys, and then get your blood dance on.

Yes, Finland has a strong gun culture; so it wouldn't be at all surprising for this ordeal to come to a swift end by some Finnish citizen closing the gunman's eyes with some well aimed fire from a Sako. Time will tell. Let's just hope that no more innocent lives are lost.
