    Very sad. Prayers sent.

    Crossbow, maybe?

    Wow, that is definitely sad. But it goes to show that guns aren't the only objects that can be turned into deadly weapons on school campuses. I certainly hope people wisen up and don't start trying to ban bows and arrows.

    How weird, they think the attacker did himself in...with a bow?
    It seems unclear whether it was a stabbing or an actual bow and arrow/crossbow attack.

    Report I read said the attacker killed his mother-in-law-to-be with a knife, his father with the crossbow and himself with a knife.

    Thank God there are no high-capacity magazines for crossbows. Can you imagine how many lives would have been lost?

    $20 says the assault crossbow he used had a collapsible stock, pistol grip and barrel shroud. A flash-hider, suppressor and high-cap mag would have made that thing any spree-murderer's dream weapon.
