No guns, so no further mention in US press.

Just imagine if the person used a gun.

It would be page 1 for weeks.

Japan needs common sense “unidentified liquid accelerant” laws. No one needs that much “unidentified liquid accelerant.”

Indeed. This is exactly the point of a recent article.
Whatever the reason, the lesser attention given to mass killings that do not invoke guns is disrespectful to the victims whose lives are tragically cut short. Is the crime any less serious if there were no gunshots? Are the victims any less dead? In fact, victims of burns, suffocation, or stabbing often suffer a much slower and painful death than gunshot victims. 

It is surely fruitless to assess the relative severity of mass killings on the basis of weaponry. Our sense of outrage and concern for the victims should be the same whether they died from a firearm or fire.
