It's ridiculous how easily you can buy guns here--go to any Wal Mart in the central or midwestern US, for example, and they have racks of guns, behind glass at least, right next to the toys sections. Unfortunately there are too many people with too much money who would never allow real gun control to happen.

Still, that's not the reason something like this happens. It's not like there has never been a shooting in England or Australia or anywhere else; if somebody wants to get a gun, they'll find a gun.

It's all over the news here in Canada too. I'm not a religious person...but the losses of life...and the families of the victims are in my thoughts.

...and if they had, this whole ordeal could have been over much quicker.

Myself, and a lot of other students on my campus are wearing orange today.

You Think ?

Students
armed with weapons ?

I don`t know ....

Sounds dangerous....

but

Maybe sometimes a student has to get shot ?

Just so a bad guy can get shot ?

Thats the price we all have to pay
for freedom it seems....

Guns don't kill people, people kill people. But if you take away that persons gun it becomes a lot harder for the person to try and kill.

Sorry for venting my frustration on you guys, it just gets me annoyed that this happens quite often but the US don't seem to learn anything from it or try to prevent it, they make it so easy for these retards to get guns its stupid.

My condolences to the people who are suffering.

Thick Americans
I think this may clear up some confusion that people have about the 2nd amendment.

Guns don't kill people. People kill people.

When you make laws against gun ownership, you only take guns away from law abiding citizens. Those that don't follow the laws will be able to get guns regardless. I am for firearm education, not firearm control. On top of all this - from what i've read online, this guy had fallen off the rocking chair of normalcy LONG before this tragedy. Why didn't anybody say anything?

VA does have CCW permits. However, the campus does not allow CCW from what I've read. What if just one student had been packing that day? We'd be reading a different news story....

Guns or no Guns, these people are fkd in the head, why is another whole topic. Taking every gun from the US population would not stop these people... They would find other ways.... maybe worse than guns??

My heart go's out to the victims, family's and friends of this tragedy.....I hope they find the strength to move on with their lives...........RIP.

One of the 33 people dead is Cho, the killer.

Do you think he went to heaven?

Just wondering.
