LETTER : Dunblane massacre: glorification of violence is not confined t o gun lovers

Sir: Tears come at any mention of the massacre at Dunblane and they are as much use as anything to the victims and their parents. But the count of the victims includes Mr Hamilton.

His state of mind must have been beyond the bounds of loss and sorrow that we can imagine and he too suffered and died. It is repulsive to suggest that his suffering could weigh against the grief caused by his final articulation of it but there is an explanation for the terrible disproportion of what he did. It is in the tools of butchery that he had to hand.
