I agree, especially considering the often free flow of alcohol and the amount of guns available in the community.

Nevertheless, my prayers go to all affected.

I'd say it isn't surprising because Iceland isn't culturally diverse and has very low income inequality. The availability of guns and booze has very little to do with low crime.

Well, a two situations you quote certainly do help the situation, but alcohol like other drugs, is a known rationality and mood scrambler.
