It could have been a bad day for everybody here. All things considered, I think we were very blessed at the University of Central Florida.University of Central Florida campus Police Chief Richard Beary • Discussing the incident on his campus Monday, in which a student, James Oliver Seevakumara, committed suicide after pulling a gun on a roommate. Seevakumara, who had no criminal or mental health record, was found to have gathered a significant amount of ammunition and weaponry, including multiple improvised explosives. It was believed that he planned a mass shooting, but aborted the attack after he heard police coming. He was in the process of being evicted from the university, as he was no longer a student.
We’re fighting terrorism, which comes under very specific geopolitical and military circumstances. This is not something that compares with the situation in the U.S.Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor • Disputing claims, made by the National Rifle Association last week, that they were an example for the U.S. to follow in adding police officers to schools. But they dispute this, first off, because those officers are dealing with terrorism, not school shootings. Secondly, the rate of school shootings and civilian gun ownership is actually very low in Israel. Third, the officers were added in a period where there were no recent attacks at schools. And finally, there have only been two school shootings in Israel in the past four decades. As it is, the guards Israel does have are lightly armed and have a support system in case something does happen.
