Shooting at Virginia Tech
 
Today, there was a shooting at Virginia Tech. So far, 31 people are dead. This is a great tragedy and my sympathies goes to everyone there.

I just got back from work and saw it on the news... Really shocking. I just can't believe that people do this to each other :(


My thoughts are with the victims and their families and friends.

That is awful :(



I can only hope that some good comes out of it, including banning and confiscation of self loading weapons

Myabe we should just not go there? I'm not anyway.

This absolutely horrible, and, in a selfish way, I am very glad that, until next school year, no one I know is there. My heart goes out to all the killed and injured; this is sickening.

Apparently, this is the most deadly act of this kind in US history.

NSXType-R 04-16-2007 01:32 PM

Yeah, seriously, what has this world gone to?:(

This is an awful tragedy and unfortunately in the end there will be stricter security measures at campuses across the nation and still no one will quit eunderstand why these things happpen.

My thoughts and prayers are with the victims, the survivors, and their families.

I don't know what to say. I never do, but I feel I ought to say something. I don't want to be selfish, but I hope it wasn't anyone I knew.

My heart goes out to the victims and their families.:(

I heard that on the radio at noon... I felt totally shocked. First thought I had was about Timothy, I knew you were in Virginia mate but didn't knew where, so I kinda flipped out. I'm glad to see it wasn't where you were...

As for the victims, well, I don't have proper words for the situation, except that my thoughts are with them. That kind of story makes me feel awful.

Turns your guts when you here shooting, Turns it more when you here school of kids young adults just starting in this world with so much more ahead of them..
Something has got to be done, I was just looking at the news here and they were saying almost all Americans are just like anyone else in the world, They don't shoot shit don't really care for guns or being arrogant stuck up hero's they go about there day like normal people. But when it came to the gun organisation and being able to restrict guns the conversation went nasty.

Because criminals would never break the law whilst committing crimes.

[QUOTE=NSXType-R;694983]Yeah, seriously, what has this world gone to?:([/QUOTE]

Indeed.

Sad that it happened, and sympathies to those involved, but...

I really don't see why we, in the UK, need to be have up-to-the-second rolling news coverage of something that, actually, doesn't really affect more than a handful of people or so who might know someone in the region.

There are more important and relevant stories to cover, both nationally and internationally, but I suppose they don't involve shaky pictures of cops with guns hiding behind patrol cars.

Maybe there is nothing else to report there?

Yeah this was quite terrible, the saddest thing is all the loved ones who will now be missing someone :(

hightower99 04-16-2007 02:50 PM

I am amazed that one man was able to kill so many people with a 9mm pistol and a .22 handgun...

It is a terrible thing when lives are ended and I don't think I have ever felt what the families of the victims are feeling right now. I mean a school is probably the last place I would expect anyone to get shot (even in the US).

Your sarcasm wafts into illogic in light of [i]our[/i] experience in cessating further gun massacres since this event, through gun control

Yeah mass murder is one thing .. but to even talk of gun control is beyond the pale, simply outrageous :rolleyes:

Sweeney921 04-16-2007 03:16 PM

This is the ONLY thing anyone is talking about here, I live about 100 miles away from VT, I've visited numerous times, and I was actually about to walk onto their football team at one point. I know a lot of people that go there. It was initially my number 1 school to go to, before I decided on VMI.

This scares the living shit out of me. One girl that was shot went to my high school, however she's in stable condition now. There's at least 30 people going to VT from my school next year, and what if it happens again?

My heart goes out to the families....

chris98891 04-16-2007 03:26 PM

one of the things that actually angers me most about the shootings is the lack of communication from administration to students. ive talked to numerous people that go there and they said they were locked down but nobody told them why and they were online asking each other and checking student emails and that was only during the first shooting. the other warnings didnt come until 2 hours afterward.
