    Here we go again with the Ax!

    Take away the guns does not stop violent people from being violent. Just takes away the innocent's means of protection. Some day maybe it'll sink in!

    'Shamed' Austrian man kills family with ax

    CNN) -- An Austrian man has confessed to killing five members of his family with an ax, Vienna police said Wednesday.

    The man walked into a Vienna police station early Wednesday and told authorities he had killed his wife and 7-year-old daughter early Tuesday, police spokesman Michael Braunsperger said.

    The man, a self-employed public relations consultant according to The Associated Press, said he had also murdered both his parents and his father-in-law in the cities of Ansfelden and Linz, respectively, the spokesman said.

    Police found the five victims, who had all been killed with an ax, Braunsperger said. The man said his motive was "financial difficulties."

    "He said he'd been speculating on the financial markets and had lost everything, so he ... wanted to spare his family the shame," Braunsperger said.

    The man is in custody awaiting further questioning, he said.

    "He is completely matter-of-fact ... almost without emotion," criminal investigator Thomas Stecher said, AP reported.

    The case is likely to unnerve Austrians on the heels of a highly publicized incest case in Amstetten, outside Vienna.

    Josef Fritzl, 73, confessed last month to holding his daughter captive in a cellar below the family home for 24 years, repeatedly raping her and fathering seven children with her. One of the babies died.

    Fritzl told his wife that their daughter had run away, and he and his wife adopted three of the children.

    In 2006, Austrian teenager Natascha Kampusch escaped from the basement of a house in Strasshof, another Vienna suburb, after being held there for eight years. Her stepmother said Kampusch had been repeatedly abused by her captor, Wolfgang Priklopil, who killed himself by throwing himself under a train hours after she escaped

    That has got to be one of the nastiest things to do. I would not even want to imagine what the places looked like.

    well, there is an easy solution to preventing this from happening again...

    First lets have everyone who goes to buy an ax have to go through a background check, maybe even a 7 day waiting period.
    Also, lets have everyone who ownes an ax report it to the local police dept, and have it registered.

    and if that doesnt work lets just take all the axes away from everyone

    Do I have to have a special permit for a double headed axe?

    A train...

    Amazingly, none of these involved firearms of any sort. Hmmm...
