He was a paranoid schizophrenic. This manifested itself in hatred of a political party. He could have walked into the office building after he car bombed it and started shooting but that would have gotten himself killed, instead he headed for the summer camp, which was unprotected. While he used high capacity clips, the fact is he could have walked around reloading a six shooter revolver and do the same amount of damage, it just would have taken him longer. There was nobody there to stop him.
I am joining TCF on this one, sorry I jumped in.
