    That's really tragic. It's all very surreal when these kinds of things happen, they're pretty hard to believe.

    My condolences to the family.

    The number of dead is almost twice as high as the previous record for a mass shooting on an American college campus. That occurred at the University of Texas in Austin on Aug. 1, 1966, when a gunman named Charles Whitman opened fire from the 28th floor of a campus tower. Whitman killed 16 and injured 31.
    Wait I minute.. there was no computer games back in 1966?

    I get so angry and frustrated when I hear such terrible news! What has the world come to?

    The death toll is actually up to 32, I think. This is really sad. My condolences to the family as well. Do they have an idea as to who did it? I know I heard on the news they found two 9mm's.

    Last I heard is 32 dead and 28 wounded. They suspect an "A heavily armed Asian man in his 20's". Supposedly he showed up looking for his girlfriend and started lining people up and shooting them. He started shooting at 7:00am and traveled to another building and started shooting again around 10:00am. I still don't have the full story. There may be more dead.

    I heard that the 32 dead included the killer. Supposedly either police nailed him or he got himself.

    The inside scoop I have is that he shot his girlfriend and another person (guy she's cheating with?) in the morning at around 7ish. Then he came back and shot up over 50 people just before 10. He supposedly went opening classroom doors and shooting people. Some people jumped out of the windows trying to escape. First reports said there was a second shooter.

    Something is not connecting with this story and is somewhat being confirmed by the press conference. Two different shooters? Two seperate events??..straaange.

    Very tragic. I feel bad for the parents to the dead, for the killer and his relatives. Restrict weapons in the US and all over the world, guns don't make you safe. Guns get you killed.

    yeah, guns don't kill people but they sure as hell are a catalyst.

    condolences to all involved, especially the victims and relatives.

    Wow. Musta been a crackshot to do such damage with a pair of nines. Chaos in a lecture hall maybe? As a college employee this sort of thing is always shocking. I cant imagine what would happen if that happened at my school. I wish well to the families.

    I posted a thread on this before seeing this one. I called to check on my friends and they seem to all be ok. It's really scary when something like this happens so close to home. I hope everyone keeps the families of all those here in VA in your prays and thoughts.

    Here's a crappy phone vid of SWAT moving in. You can hear guns in the background.

    Concolences to victims and their famiilies. One of the main debates that is going on is why the uni was not closed down during the period after the first shooting, and police is saying that the reason that the decision was made not to was because they thought the first shooting was isolated, and was something unconnected to what happened later.

    Will there be any changes to the gun law? National Rifle Association was actually inclining that students should instead be armed with guns to defend themselves. Clearly, one of the problems is widespread access to firearms.

    Man, the kind of people who do these kinds of things really piss me off. I feel bad for the students who had to go through this and I give my deepest condolences to the families and everyone effected.

    we found out about it during class, and I thought our campus was going to be closed down. Made me a little nervous for an hour or two, when it's so close to home you can't help but feel like that same crazy bastard is gonna barge into your classroom and start opening fire.

    so tragic. There was a shooting abit like that in australia in 1996 that left 35 people dead and was the catalyst for our current gun laws and the national ban on semi automatics etc. Thought are with the families and deceased. such a waste

    Some serious strangeness with this event. 2 different sets of shootings... hours apart. People on campus not told about the shooting until hours afterward. SLOW AS SHIT police response, even though numerous bomb threats had been called into the school the week before. The recent revocation of concealed gun carry on campus even though VA is a concealed carry state.... WTF?!

    Here's a more trippy perspective:

    So many parents left with nothing, not even a reason for the death of their child. (unless the gunman did leavean explanation, sorry I didn't read much on it)

    I hope there is a devil, so he can get that fucker up the ass with a spiked lava-stick.
