From the Paper:

"Gun control, or lack of it, is an important issue in modern America; events such as the Virginia massacre demonstrate that, in the wrong hands, a gun can be an exceptionally dangerous weapon, and that more and more disturbed people are using guns to act out their paranoid fantasies of oppression, state control, and threats to themselves."
