This story just illustrates the fact that water can be very dangerous. It's time we passed a law restricting the use of water to people who are responsible enough to use it wisely. The way things are now, just ANYBODY can turn on the water and unlease a torrent of wet death on their unsuspecting neighbors. Umm, oh yeah, motorcycles are cool!
Well the article as posted doesn't mention guns anywhere. In Sweden an illegal weapon can be just about anything that the government doesn't like. Bows, big knives, sticks, etc., etc.
Socialist governments like Sweden, Britain, etc. are deathly afraid of citizens who might have the ability and willingness to fight back from the creeping slavery that always accompanies socialism. Hence totalitarian socialists, like US Democrats, are scared to death of armed citizens. They are afraid that these cictizens may learn the socialist's true objectives (total slavery for all except the elite) and do the right thing.
If I am not careful, I might start agreeing with you. Then where would we be. A third party, maybe? Perhaps the asphalt party. Nah, make it the twisty, empty asphalt party. Give the lemmings public transportation.
