校園槍殺案

美國又再爆發校園瘋狂槍殺案,死亡人數還破了歷來記錄。

——我在《華麗妖殺團》的開首也寫過類似的東西,明眼人都看得出是拿哥倫拜(Columbine)中學那次事件來做藍本。

果如哥倫拜事件一樣,這次維珍尼亞理工槍殺案才發生了一天,已經有右派政棍展開「Witch Hunt」,急不及待把矛頭指向電腦遊戲(今天的大學男生,玩過暴力電腦遊戲的恐怕佔九成以上吧?),試圖轉移人們對槍械氾濫的注意。

當然,有的人會辯說:槍不會殺人,人才會殺人。

不錯,有槍的人不一定想殺人;但反過來,想殺人的人有了槍,卻鐵定成為災難。

設想兇手拿的不是槍而是刀子,他能殺死這許多人嗎?學校的人群不會有更大機會合力制止他嗎?

「火槍發明以後,懦夫也能夠殺死英雄。」

扣扣手指就取人性命的東西,竟然在民間大量流通,到了連超市都有賣的程度。情形等於把易燃危險品到處亂放,到出了大火災,就只怪失火意外。

更有甚者,竟有槍會組織認為問題出在校園禁槍,如果有師生也拿把槍反擊自衛,兇手就不能得逞……云云。

這類人大概恨不得自己生在拓荒牛仔時代,或者是一群自以為Rambo上身的「軍事Wannabe」。既然他們對用槍自保殺敵如此有信心,不如就派他們去伊拉克,代替現在一批又一批去送死的窮家青年,如何?

對哦。這也是我的第一個反應。
殺人變得太容易了。

我一看到電視新聞就跟女友說,
如果那南韓人有一樣的嗜血心態,但只有把刀子的話,他的仇恨與體力都未必能夠支持他殺到3個人。

肥佬套紀錄片黐gun show探討呢個問題套野都幾好睇,始終槍會同軍火廠既財力勢力太大,又涉及d德州選票又錢,點嘈都冇用。

I was thinking of Michael Moore movie when I read your article too. Guns control (or the lack of it) is the reason why America is such a dangerous place

學生有槍殺人
老師就要槍自衛?
難保不會有老師用槍傷害人呵
而且槍這種東西不是用來自衛的,
避彈衣才是自衛用的
第一..你用槍打他
打死了..他是該死的嗎.該死的定義是甚麼?
打傷他..他可能在你不為意回敬你一槍

打趣的說,美國的教師都要強制安排射擊課程,
中小學新學期訂購的,是件新的避彈衣,
每個課室必須有一校園反恐特警當值,
因為美國的學校總有一天會發生槍戰的.

美國政府對此事件表示傷痛;布殊最好被人槍殺,死在自己國家出口的槍械上。最氣人的是,初步斷定兇手時便一口咬定是中國人所為。歧視極重。

To aqua:

Hello, when you said "最氣人的是,初步斷定兇手時便一口咬定是中國人所為。歧視極重。" I think you may have misunderstood a bit here, sometimes when the western people say "chinese", they just mean yellow skin people, they dun necessarily mean people from China or Chinese people. plus they didnt 一口咬定, you got that from the HK media rite? Some of the HK journalists might have said that coz it would make the incident more related to us and attract more readers. I live in England, and the media never said "The killer was Chinese" stuff like that, so pls dun generalise and accused the media of being racist. :)

Mr 喬, I was the one who asked you to write the "Deep Blue" lyric for me at the book fair last year, I highly doubt if you remember me, dun worry if you dun.

CM said...

Dear Aqua

I see what you meant, 'coz the police had suspected the wrong person in the 1st place (they thought it's the 1st victim's chinese bf did the killing, rite?). I still dun think the media reportin involved any racist element. Sometimes HK people treat Mainland Chinese people worse than other people treat them. Maybe we should criticise ourselves b4 we blame the others? :)

Sorry, I didnt mean to sound so political here.
