    Actually, I think 4 made it out alive. But I do see what you're saying. That's scary though.

    horrible situation. Students and families are complaining that more should have been done. Demanding firing of university president and police chief.

    Re: Virginia Tech...

    More should have been done?!? Like what? The only thing that would have stopped this would be another student on campus that carried a concealed weapon BUT

    Last year, Virginia passed a law forbiding firearms on campuses. That makes 48 of 50 states. Even those with legal carry permits, security guards, and off-duty police are not permitted to have a concealed firearm on campus. Only Utah and Oregon still allow them. Only Utah and Oregon have not experienced the kind of carnage we saw yesterday. Coincedence? I think not.

    Don't forget this fact; Law enforcement has never stopped a shooter in this environment. Every school shooting or Church shooting in this country was ended when the shooter either killed himself, or was shot by a civilian with a legally owned gun. In fact, most shooting rampages and violent crimes in any environment in the USA, on or off campus, are ended by a civilian with a gun. The "Mainstream" media never reports this fact.

    My prayers go out to the victims and their families. I have a daughter at a college campus and it's a stressful situation. These are small cities and it is difficult to lock them down. I read a story where one of the teachers held the classroom door while his students jumped out windows. No one has heard from him. What a hero.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~A tragedy indeed. I don't know what makes people go wacko like that, and sadly we won't get to find out. My prayers for the families and friends. Again a situation where lawful gun ownership could have offered protection, but due to short sighted bureaucracy the victims were defenseless. I hope those responsible for disarming the victims and police are happy with themselves.

    Re: Virginia Tech...

    Such a horrible tragedy. Senseless murder of innocent people. Our world is so filled with senseless violence...and you know you've become used to it when you're not completely shocked by something like this happening.

    What CW said is correct. Most shootings of innocent people actually happen with guns purchased illegally, not the other way around (that fact was brought out last night on MSNBC by a specialist). So if you created gun laws banishing the use and ownership of firearms by civilians, those who are doing the killing wouldn't be those law abiding citizens who turn their guns over.

    However I will say that our society thrives on violence....it's everywhere and in everything and it obviously affects our children. IMO the violence in this country portrayed on tv and in video games and movies is what should be addressed, not the guns. The kid had a clean record and no priors, by law he was able to purchase that weapon. Who was to know that he'd end up using it to kill 32 people then himself. Banning guns won't necessarily stop people like that from acting out on their rage.

    Sad, sad story. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those involved.

    As someone who lives 20 minutes from there and know people there we appreciate the prayers and thoughts. Society has taken a turn when in a town that people don't lock there doors and go about there business, this happens. I think that people should learn from this and stop blaming the school. There are State Trouper and Local Police who have been on duty for over 24 hours doing the investigation on this and we forget about them too. When people who have dealt with tragedy before tell us that it is even something that they have problem with you know it is bad. Sorry to ramble but, it makes me sad to see that society has taken a turn like this and that people are not more considerate of others and what they think and how people are. what happened to the golden rule. When I grew up that was the way you treated people and you respected your elders. That has been lost in todays society. There are days that I am scared for society when people do things like this but, as it has shown it also can bring the best out in people too. I have heard so much from people outside of Virginia that have called into the local radio station when XM picked up the broadcast this morning. It makes me think that there is hope but, as a society we have to get our priorities in order and then we can start to get a handle and help others out. Thanks for listening.

    As far as what the students were told, I believe that they were told the best thing since as far as they believed the person who commeted the 1st 2 murders in the dorm had left and they were interviewing a person of interest. Also for a University of 26,000 students in the dorms is better than on the parade field there where it would have easier for the gunmen to kill more people.

    Re: Virginia Tech...

    i hugged my 3 kids tight last night.

    maybe there should be a schoolwide pager system that students get with their badge. a small pager with a panic button, that way they get immediate alerts on the screen and can signal police if they feel threatened. could be about the size of a small digital audio player.
    I don't know what I said, but I know what I think,
    and, well, I assume it's what I said.

    ...even smaller, maybe about the size of a thumb drive. they would be required to carry it with their school badge.
