Naturally this happened in America and, as usual, I just love the deadpan and understated way that American police spokespeople comment on the happenings.
As an aside, I had a Swedish colleague who (like all Swedes) was a military reservist. He wasn't scared of much (a 6 foot 6 viking, built like a brick wotsit) but Americans scared the bejeesus out of him....not the fact that all those guns were around, just the fact that most of them thought they were John Wayne (OK, it was quite a few years ago) and hadn't been trained to handle them with proper care and [safety] consideration.
A former forumite (bingalau) sent me this link. For any budding shottists who want t try their hand. I managed to score a persistent 10, so I am not as rusty as I thought. It is in Russian- but just click on the word "Crapt" to start.
