This title is Òimportant to communicationÓ. I think the gunman was lacking to communicate with surrounding. He had must communicate with his family, friends, and girl friend and others. And it couldn't happen like this affair. I think he pile up alone stress or complaintÉand more. He needs someone to talk to.
