Arson at Japanese animation studio kills 33 people


ReutersA man suspected of torching an animation studio and killing 33 people in Japan’s worst mass killing in two decades had been convicted of robbery and carried out the attack because he believed his novel had been plagiarized, media said on Friday.

Public broadcaster NHK, which identified the 41-year-old man as Shinji Aoba, citing police, said he served time in prison for robbing a convenience store east of Tokyo in 2012 and, after his release, lived in facilities for former convicts. He had also received care for mental illness, NHK said.

A horrific and tragic mass murder, committed outside the US without firearms. My sympathies go out to the victims and their families.

Despite what the gun control people want you to believe, banning guns -- as Japan does -- will not stop mass murder, and mass murder is not itself unique to the US in any way.
