32 Dead In Gun Rampage and possibly more !!

You can read about it Click Me Sky News.

Virginia Tech says there were shootings at both ends of the 2,600-acre campus.

The first was at about 0715am at West Ambler Johnston, a co-educational hall of residence that houses 895 people.

There were further shootings about two hours later at Norris Hall, an engineering building.

One student was killed in a dorm and the others were killed in the classroom.


----------------------
26,000 Students on Campus - Gee that's some Campus.

I'm just pleased our gun laws are not as relaxed as the US laws.

Unbelievable no

With the Americans seemingly intent on keeping their freedom of guns for all law's, all I can say is it serves them right. Its not like they havent had enough warnings time and time again. One day they will realise what common sense is.

you know what would sort out all of the uk's problems........guns. if you knew your neighbor had a gun you wouldn't piss him off. yes there might be a massacre at the start but it would soon calm.

A memorial service is to be held at the university, which President Bush and his wife Laura are expected to attend.

Hmmm interesting. He was a South Korean English student, it doesnt make sense lmao. I suppose he must have been born in South Korea and bought up in England.

Or perhaps Matty, you mis-understood and it means he was South Korean stuying English whilst living on the campus?? lol

Ridiculous loss of life, but as others have said, can only be expected from the relaxed gun laws within the US, especially within Virginia.

Wonder what was happening in 2002 for there to be no shootings at schools? lol
