Description

"Is it really ten years?" you may ask yourself. Hungerford; a name that until that summer’s day in 1987 ment nothing more to most of us than a place somewhere. But that was to change in terrible fashion, and within hours the name Hungerford had become a synonym for mayhem and murder.

Afterwards we asked ourselves if it could ever happen again, and today we know the sad answer. A newspaper headline states: "Massacre Rambo Kills Himself." But these are not the words that should disturb us. The sub-heading declares: "Government Reviews Laws On Gun Control." AK-47 were banned, but there was no ban on Berettas which Ryan used to shoot his first victim 13 times as she fled. Who is to blame? While the families of the children murdered at Dunblane continue their fight to have guns banned, haven’t most of us forgotten? Until the next time.

They were confident to the point of arrogance. Three total regues who believed they were above the law and could get away with murder. Their stories span more than a century and come from Austria, France and America – and are included in this big 10-story issue.
