    Sometimes the bomb maker blows himself up making it. Sometimes it fails to detonate.

    Given the resources and time he spent on this attack, it wouldn't surprise me if he was able to obtain such a working bomb.

    This guy had a death wish in any case.

    Wouldn't surprise me if he had been caught before using, blew himself up, or it didn't work. But he sure was effective with what he legally had.

    I doubt he would have been caught. This guy was not a moron. He planned this attack very carefully, and even bought a room overlooking the place. Had cameras set up outside his room and sent his girlfriend off to the Philippines while he conducted his attack.

    He was very reclusive, had lots of land and was very rich.

    Timothy Mcveigh wasn't exactly a rich, intelligent expert on bombmaking, i would say it is very possible.

    Anything is possible. We sure see the result of being able to legally buy guns that are great for mass killing though.

    Well, do you want a complete ban on semiautomatic firearms?

    This guy had Zero criminal record, so that's pretty much the only way to have made it (legally) impossible for him to get a gun capable of 'mass murder'.

    I think we should go back to restrictions on magazine capacity.

    Every time I think: "Man! Siete can't get any more stupid", you double down.

    Changing magazines is pretty fast, though. i don't think it would have significantly changed the final outcome. the shooter in Sandy Hook, for example, changed his mags when they were only half empty. the attack on Columbine occurred during the 1994 AWB.
