Constructing and placing a bomb requires forethought, planning, and working knowledge of explosives, to say nothing of the materials (already mentioned above). While one can make the argument that at least the knowledge is freely available on the internet, the ability to plan is not. You have it or you don’t. The problem with plans is that, as the adage says, they oft go awry. The more complicated the plan, the more things can go wrong. Adam’s plan, if one could call it that, was incredibly simple: get guns, to to school, start shooting. If, on the other hand, Adam had a knife or some other close-range weapon, escape would have been much easier: simply put distance between the intended victim and the attacker. This is one of the main reasons why guns are so dangerous. To kill someone with a knife you either need to be very skilled or very lucky. The firearm is the great equalizer; you don’t need to be either to kill someone with a gun.
