news.theage.com.au -- A 13-year-old French boy set out to mow down his teachers with a shotgun but abandoned the plan when he arrived at the school and found it surrounded by police, officials say. The boy's parents raised the alarm when they realised he had taken the family gun from their house near Beauvais, north of Paris, and was headed to his school in Beauvais itself, officials said. The teenager was in custody on suspicion of attempted murder and admitted his homicidal intentions during an interview, Beauvais prosecutor James Juan said in a statement.

    my coworkers, liberal nihilists of more or less the same moral fiber as the exiled staff and fanbase, were sitting around one day discussing what they’ll do when society finally really, really breaks down. home invasions to steal food and whatever other supplies they might need were high on the list. however, they pointed out that they would leave me alone because they know i’m armed and would have no problem with shooting an intruder. so, that was kind of nice.
