On 22 October 2015, 21-year-old Anton Lundin Pettersson entered the Kronan School in the town of Trollhättan, armed with a huge sword. His mission was to kill, but some students thought he was pranking, I guess the situation was so unreal.
We don’t really have school shootings here in Sweden, I guess because it’s much more difficult for a Swedish teenager to get a hold of a gun. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have frustrated teenagers. And even if you are armed with a sword, the damage you can cause is horrible.
