No need for any translation. It should be quite obvious. Thanks to Jion999 for pointing it out.

    I guess this is from the newspapers of Hong Kong.
    I have heard before that they are vulgar but this was beyond my imagination.

    It was reported that the shooter had two guns.
    This shooting style with a gun in each hand reminds me of Chow Yun-Fat of Hong Kong movies.
    In this case, it must be difficult to control guns and reloading is more difficult. The killer must be well trained.

    I haven’t read anything about him going around guns akimbo, blazing away like a John Woo movie. Maybe the artist just got a bit excited…

    He had two guns. Maybe he was using them as primary and secondary, or maybe he was doing it Hong Kong movie style.

    It look so cruel..and disgusting a little to me.
    I wonder if this cartoon posted above is appropriate to the theme of this web site.

    I believe that this site is not a place to satisfy our bloody curiosity but to have a rational debate.

    It is cruel… but the shootings were cruel, and this is a reflection of that. We should face it, not run away.

    I wonder whether the cartoonist covered the details.
    What would he/she like to tell through this cartoon?
    If these are true, he must have shot whithin point-blank range because pistols are hard to aim at without support of the other hand.
    Anyway, this is heartless.
    I wonder what bereaved families feel when they read this.

    Come on, this is clearly an exploitation. With all the irrelevant(some, not all) bashings going on with the Korean cartoons, gotta wonder, what if these were drawn by a Korean cartoonist.
