I can't believe it....

This deserves a topic, if only out of fucking respect for the people victimized by this act of tragicness.

30?  Really?  Well colour me desensitised!  €20 It'll be lower when they finally get a proper number.  Right now all we have is news agencies trying to out tragidify the spectacle.

It's up to 33 already. Apparently he lined the students up, and then shot them. :(

this shooting is a perfect example of why gun control is a bad idea, if there had been a few students in that class with guns on them the death toll could have been a lot less.

For some reason i keep on trying to understand what the fuck makes people do crap like this..... Thankfully, i haven't succeeded.

I did find a very interesting article that made a creditable attempt at explaining it (as well as terrorism... go figure..).

All I know is that were I being shot at, I'd like to be able to reciprocate in kind.

I think if you're going to go through with murdering a bunch of people having firearms as illegal won't be a big deal... Ease of access might be an issue though.

Of course the shooter shouldn't have had a gun in the first place. Then the death toll would have been 0.

As funny and twisted as mordeth's comment was, if another kid did have a gun it would have been a shootout instead of an execution.

I wonder how many people would get hurt if it was actually likely that multiple kids would be packing heat on any given day at any given school though :P

If I were thinking of murdering a bunch of people I don't know if I'd go through with it if I couldn't get a gun... stabbing a bunch of people would be fuckin hard work... and then you'd have to stab yourself at the end too, screw that!

as hard as they try those Americans still cant beat Martin Bryants record of 35 - getting close but.

i don't think gun control would work in the states, violence is so often the answer to too many things over there, a nation where you can't see a tit on prime time but can show a dead body.

Record of what?  Killing people single-handedly, worldwide?  As if.

Its the deadliest school shooting in US History. It really sickens me that someone has so little respect for human life to do such a thing. Something like this is really hard to wrap my head around.

33 dead. Its really sad...

Should I make a comparison with the thousands dead in Iraq and Africa, or are American lives just worth more? Have I been beaten to posting this in this thread already?

There's been threads about them as well, what's your fucking point?
