Knew nothing about these attacks, but the wikipedia page has really sucked me in. I'm halfway done reading it, but I'm thinking that this guy seems like every other moron who's ever decided that their lives would be improved by killing hundreds of other people publicly and in rapid succession.

    Breivik spent six days in Prague in late August and early September 2010. Following his Internet inquiry, Breivik noted that "Prague is known for maybe being the most important transit site point for illicit drugs and weapons in Europe". Despite the fact that Prague has one of the lowest crime rates among European capitals, Breivik expressed reservations about his personal safety, writing that (before his trip there) he believed Prague to be a dangerous place with "many brutal and cynical criminals".

    ...

    Contrary to his expectations, he was unable to get any firearms in the Czech Republic, commenting that it was the "first major setback in [his] operation". In the end, he concluded that Prague was "far from an ideal city to buy guns", nothing like "what the BBC reported", and that he had felt "safer in Prague than in Oslo"

What a miserable fucking idiot
