He lost it

Everyone is talking about it. He brought a military-issued armed rifle into the civilian realm. Fear of a replica of the Virginia shooting. Alas, in Singapore, it happened in Orchard Road.

Alot of speculation and of course it is related to a (failed) relationship.

As aptly put by the Bard –
Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs,
Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers’ eyes,
Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers’ tears.
What is it else? A madness most discreet,
A choking gall and a preserving sweet.

– Romeo, Romeo & Juliet Act 1 Scene 1

It makes you wonder. If cupid is blind, does it make us even more so?
