    "BLACKSBURG, Va. -- A gunman massacred 32 people at Virginia Tech in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history Monday, cutting down his victims in two attacks two hours apart before the university could grasp what was happening and warn students.

    The bloodbath ended with the gunman committing suicide, bringing the death toll to 33 and stamping the campus in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains with unspeakable tragedy, perhaps forever."


    That hits close to home since I have friends that go there and could have been there myself considering I got accpeted but passed them up for another University.

    i feel sorry for all that, it´s at the moment numer one theme in all news-shows on television here in germany....it really bad!!!

    i´ve heard that the usa have the most cases of amok-going people in the world.....we had some in germany, mostly also in scools..

    so what can i say, lucky is everyone who weren´t there at that time. but it´s also a political problem concerning the possibility to buy weapons in some us-states.....

    the US also has a much bigger population, so statistically it is more likely to happen there ;)

    I'm very anti-gun(you'll never see one in my hands).The gun issue has fired up again between the pro-gun nuts & the anti-gun nuts.It's sad that things like this & Columbine has brought up issues like this again.


    From what I heard,this started from a lovers spat & he was planning this for about a month.

    If it was a thing between lovers... then shouldn't have just shot the girl (or the guy)?

    I just found out a guy from Catonsville(a suburb of Baltimore) is one of the injured.He was shot 3 times.


    My thoughts & condolances go out to the families of this tragedy.

    yes. because people planning to kill others usually think in a logical manner.

    Austrian news reports that there's a bomb threat according to Fox News. That's... no can't find words for that.

    your right, but it´s not that easy to get guns here as in the us.....
    the possibility to get guns in the most of the us-states doubles the statisic!!!!how is it in scotland?
