    Hits close to home here, my dad worked at an apartment complex near the school that mainly housed college students.

    Sad.

    That's horrific.

    *edit*

    But a bomb blast killed over 50 people in Iraq yesterday in an act of senseless violence. It kinda makes you think about these senseless deaths.

    Why don't they have stricter gun laws. Or just ban guns altogether. No guns, no shootings. Simple as that. Oh, you like to hunt? Too bad ... pick up another hobby.

    Agreed. These shootings keep on happening in America and no one is doing anything about them. It's not video games or a bad youth that kill other people, it's guns!

    There are always crazy people who will try to kill others. Just don't give them a chance to cause massive damage. Ban guns you trigger happy Americans.

    You can't blame a country for the shooting, it was an act of a deranged person. Your comment was uncalled for and was very insensitive.

    A couple of my friends to there as well. I still havent heard back from any of them.

    P.S. America really is fucked up, thats the truth of it. I would rather not rant on why this is the case but everyone knows its true.

    I also agree, but a country that values the right to bare arms, more than they do human life, this is just not going to happen.

    The right to bare arms is protected by the Constitution of America. Many have tried to ban guns, but there are organizations like the NRA(National Rifle Association) that oppose them. And guns don't kill people, people kill people, there will always be crazy people out there. If you have to blame someone, blame the shooter.

    I disagree. Haven't you ever heard the saying 'if you ban guns, only criminals will own guns'.

    Think about it, if this guy was willing to do that, don't you think he'd have found a gun whether illegal or not?

    There MUST be something wrong with America. You don't see this happening in Canada. It's no coincidence that most of the school massacres happen in the US. It's just WAY too easy to own a gun in America. I'm not putting down Americans in general, just their laws ... and their president for that matter. [​IMG]

    Guns don't kill people? People kill people? Yeah, with what? GUNS!

    i'm a little bit offended by these anti-america comments, remember that america is a country made up of people too that don't necessarily agree with the way things are conducted either. assuming that guns can just be taken away is extremely ignorant. Maybe in a place with less violence or that has historically less of a need for them, but if you were to take away guns in America, i guarantee you that things would be much worse, there would be chaos and a pretty bad scene with crime. america isn't fucked up, certain americans are fucked up, just like certain citizens of X country are fucked up

    edit: yah, banning guns itself is a such a stupid idea i can't imagine anyone assigning it any merit, those who use guns wrongly aren't going to care whether they're legal or not

    stuff like this really shouldnt happen but it does anyway, thansk to all the crazy people out there

    I read about this on digg already though

    Edit: America isnt the only place that has all this stuff happening, look at the middle east, theres a lot of stuff happening there and i dont see anyone bashing them for suicide bombs........... Why does everyone have to insult america?

    aslacker55 you are right that people kill people, but if these people couldn't get hold of guns then there would be less killings.

    US has 8259 killing by firearms, the only other countries in the thousands are Mexico, Columbia, Thailand and South Africa, and these are pretty corrupt countries when compared to the US etc.

    By comparison, Austrlia has 59, UK has 62, Spain 97 and Germany 384. I know these countries have less people but only by a factor of about 5 and the simpl;e reason why is because guns are harder to get in these countries.

    What's wrong with the US Gun policy. Seems like firearms are easily accessible.
