He wanted to kill himself but was too cowardly to do it so he asked his mom...because he was afraid the cops outside would shoot him? I fail to see the logic here.

Too weak to kill himself then.

This story is not even worth reading anymore, Truly Sickening.

I sincerely hope the correct steps were followed when Aoki was issued his gun licence. The events that occurred paint a picture of a disturbed individual.

According to the police, the suspect has held and renewed licenses for four hunting guns, including shotguns and air guns, since 2015. One of them may have been used in the slayings.

I was led to believe that any social or financial abnormalities (failure to graduate from college, say, or to hold down a real job, or even gossip from the neighbors that you're a weirdo) would prevent you from getting a gun license.

So, what I keep asking myself is, could his father have had anything to do with his license approval? If so, there is liability. That guy should not have been anywhere near a gun.

Sounds like he had some screws loose for sure he will probably get the death penalty so in the end he will get what he wanted.

Actions like this are rarely logical. Human nature to look for a logical explanation for terrible acts, but people simply behave illogically - and quite often. There is little point in even reading about the killer and his motives... but human nature again and here we are.

"Too weak to kill himself then."

Japan is a very civilized country for their J criminals -he lived, in the U.S. especially if you take out a "12"(s), the shooter in most cases has to check out, no court date.

As if you know anything about it! Some people are paranoid. I think I will wait before I pass judgement.
