A New American Export: Gun Violence

Yesterday's shooting rampage in Eilat turns out not to be terrorism, but instead a distinctively American style of crime:

One hotel employee (who did happen to be American) gets into a dispute with a fellow-worker, grabs a gun, and shoots and kills him - before being killed himself by police. No political motive apparently, just sociopathy plus firearms.
