When I was a freshman, my sister was in eighth grade. There was a boy in two of her periods who would ask her out every single day. (Third and seventh period, if I remember correctly.) All day during third and seventh she would repeatedly tell him no. She didn’t beat around the bush, she didn’t lie and say she was taken—she just said no.
One day, in third period, after being rejected several times, he said; “I have a gun in my locker. If you don’t say yes, I am going to shoot you in seventh.”
This isn’t as uncommon as you think. At my current [retail] job there was this fellow who worked there for a week or two a while back. Seemed okay, nothing specifically misogynistic on the surface. Then he didn’t show up to work the one day. That night one of my managers saw him on the local news channel, being arrested for making terroristic threats. These included having access to guns and Molotov cocktails. He planned to blow up a gas station, then he was going to have a stand off in a local mall’s daycare. Motivation? Depressed and angry. He was upset that a woman, with whom he had a relationship, had recently filed a protection from abuse order against him. He’s out of jail now, don’t think they had enough to prosecute him or something.
