The alleged shooter, 18-year-old Pekka-Eric Auvinen, was a student at Jokela High School. Born on June 4, 1989, in Tuusula, Finland, a number of sources describe his father as a part-time musician and full-time railroad worker, and his mother an ex-deputy of the Tuusula municipal council. The context of the psyop
It is very suspicious that the 'massacre' happened in a place with such liberal gun laws, and how the authorities rapidly moved to tighten these. It's problem-reaction-solution at work.
Finland has the most guns per capita in Europe, a total of 1.8 million firearms outside of army use in a country of 5.3 million people, according to Amnesty International. That is the third-highest rate in the world after the U.S. and Yemen. Any adult can own a gun if it is registered with a shooting club.

Finland's cabinet has moved to toughen gun laws, two days after an 18-year-old school student shot dead eight people and then himself in the south of the country.Finland will support an EU measure it had previously contested
which prevent minors from possessing guns. Finnish law currently allows 15-year-olds to own guns.Finland has one of the world's highest gun ownership rates, ranking third behind the United States and Yemen.
However, the new rules could not however have prevented Wednesday's school massacre as the gunman, Pekka-Eric Auvinen, was 18-years-old when he bought his weapon.
Wednesday's incident prompted questions about how Auvinen had so easily obtained a license for the handgun he used.
Meanwhile, Finland remained on edge as police briefly surrounded two other schools after Internet threats of further attacks. In both cases, police later lifted the threat warning.
"This is an awful day... The shooting has deeply undermined the sense of security in society... Nobody had expected such things," he said.Following the incident, the Finnish government met in an emergency session to consider tightening school security.
These 'Columbine' scripts all seem to be exactly the same: a bullied pupil, always a 'loner,' goes berserk and then shoots himself in the head, usually spending some hours in hospital before dying of his injuries. There is also the image of a 'guy next door-type' losing it.' For example, The Times
quoted Jan-Olav Nyholm, a local police officer, as saying that the killer came from a "very normal family" of four. "He has one brother," he said. "He had no problems in school."http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/w ... 825403.ece
In addition to this, according to a long-time friend of the gunman, he started acting oddly just in recent days: 'Another student, Tuomas Hulkkonen, told Helsingin Sanomat that he had known the gunman for ten years. He said that the man had been acting oddly in recent days and had drawn pictures of guns.'
What I also noticed about the Finland shootings of 2007 is that the alleged shooter had a very brief exchange with armed police before finally, as the story would have it, deciding to end his life. As The Times
reported, 'Police officers, some armed with automatic weapons, surrounded the school and a city official announced shortly before 4pm (2pm GMT) that the siege was over. The last shot was fired at 12.04pm (10.04am GMT). The gunman fired a single shot at police, who did not return fire, local agencies reported. (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/w ... 825403.ece
