    Damn I hate the fact that here is yet another college shooting. Evidently there is one fatality and at least 17 wounded at Virginia Tech. today. Police have one in custody and hopefully it is the shooter. I don't know about the rest of the crowd here but for something like this I would definitely vote for an expedited trial and execution. That is of course as long as they positively have the right person. Wonder what will happen if the shooter is a young Muslim?? We will just have to wait and see. Hopefully non of our forum friends were injured there. Sorry about this rant,its just that it really ticks me off to hear crud like this. :confused: catfish

    when go question about guilt, why have a trial. trails are to prove guilt.
    let punishment fit crime

    Hey catfish! Ticks me off too. These kids were defenseless and once again it occurred in a GUN FREE ZONE. Latest news is 21 dead and one injured. If latest report is accurrate we won't need a trial because the A---ole is DEAD!!doc R

    Well... if it was a rifle it was either an "assault rifle" or a "sniper rifle".

    It's sad that all this is happening at schools. I hope they got the bastard. (as in killed him vs arresting him)

    Apparently he killed himself. The coward's way out. I had guessed as much.

    Our hearts go out to the victims and their families.

    I think we should prepare for the backlash. They are reporting that 2 9mm handguns were found at the scene. With the outpouring of alarmists and social leeches that you can bet will come in force to use this tragedy as a springboard for their own agendas, our rights are going to come under brand new fire.

    I have been watching various news programs today, and I have already seen it begin within hours of the incident. No shortage of telephone interviews with "specialist" quacks whose warcry is "I told you so!"

    Nevermind that many gun control laws are catch-22s, since no evil-doer will stop what he is doing and say, "Oh, but there are no firearms allowed on that property. Curses, foiled again!"

    Let us pray that the authorities and the American public have the wisdom to take appropriate actions.

    Another fine example of a defenceless zone.

    Liberals will never understand this, stupid, clueless, mentally deranged liberals.


    So in other words, the threat of possibly committing a felony by carry your self defence weapon caused the deaths of 32 kids. All it would have taken was one teacher or student to take care of this problem.

    If they (liberals) are going to take away the law of nature they should be under the obligation to protect you as such. But the police or any other Govt official are under no obligation to protect me or you. When are the Dems going to understand this?

    They haven't so far and I doubt they ever will. This tragity is a direct result OF gun control.

    Last info I heard (msnbc.com) there were 31 killed and 28 wounded. They said the shooter had a 9mm handgun and a .22 handgun. He had a vest with extra magazines stuffed in it. This is just tragic, and I hope it doesn't bode ill for our sport. One nut-job is despondent over his girlfriend dumping him and a professor he didn't like and goes out randomly killing people. At least he had the decency to end it by taking himself out of the gene pool. :(

    He wouldnt have the chance around here, I can make it to my car pretty quick and he wouldn't have the chance to kill himself.

    The news ticker at Fox News just reported that the two handguns found at the scene were 9mm and 22mm. :rolleyes: This guy really must have meant business.

    Guns are not the problem in our country. It is the stigma and the lack of education surrounding them.

    This is a very tragic event in our nation's history and I symapthize with the families of the victims. The attention of the entire world is focused on us gun owners now and the laws we all abide by. I can't help but believe we haven't even felt the shock wave thats surely coming from the anti-gun lobby. I think its going to be a rough ride in the years to come because an event like this isn't going to be easily forgotten. This couldn't have happened at a worse time either. I was feeling fairly confident H.R. 1022 would never make it past the house floor until this happened. All it takes is one deranged nut job with a gun to make us all look bad and sway public opinion against firearm purchasing and ownership.

    I'm really sad to see it. This is a thing I'd never understand, never accept. But fortunatelly it is an isolated event. Today, just today around 20 persons were killed in my former town, Rio de Janeiro, in riots involving drug dealers. And it is normal. No matter how we look at, a bunch of lifes lost. No concrete solution or way to avoid it from happening again. Oh yes, except for the anti gun freaks, that always have the perfect culprit, the guns.

    Just watching a piece on Fox news about how they recently shot down
    legislation there that would have allowed people on campus concealed
    carry. They also mentioned how one campus shooting was stopped when
    two student with permits got their guns from their cars and stopped the
    shooter before he killed anyone.
    Don't look for that story on too many other channels.

    Just shows gun control works like a charm..........for criminals.
