NO GUN CONTROL DEBATES. THESE WILL RESULT IN WARNINGS REGARDLESS OF YOUR STANCE EVEN IF YOU'RE ACTING NICE.

I can't understand this, I just can't. Taking a gun to school and shooting random students, I don't care if you were bullied, picked on, abused, it's doesn't matter, there's no point in it.

Funny words.

I just saw this on the news. What the hell is going on with all the shootings in the US?


So far I haven't heard that anyone died, let's hope it stays that way.

Wasn't there a school shooting just a few weeks ago some other place? Finland or something?
#16
At this point theres no shock in it anymore. My reaction is pretty much " Oh another one bummer."
#17
ok. the gunman's dead. 15 victims, but that's dead and injured. he fired with a shotgun and pistol.

A question to the American users, in an average year, how many school shootings would you say are in the news? Just out of curiousity.

there's a disproportionate lately. there usually aren't that many [making the news]. i wonder if the rise in coverage has caused to more of them happening. lots of unstable people out there with lots of ways to get guns.

I'd agree with the last bit, I was shocked when I first went into a Wal-Mart. I seem to remember the last two in the news being in Finland, but there was a short article in the paper today about one in America yesterday or the day before, I believe.

People are assholes. What the hell is the point of shooting up a school? Especially a college where people pay to learn.

Same with me. It is sad to see that something so gross amd cruel is becoming more and more ordinary.
I'd like to know what these kids are thinking. I never got the impression that they are too depressive ore something, they rather seem to not know what they're doing. Just my view though.

well you're wrong. they're typically just insane. the guy at v-tech was. then you've got the high school ones which are also all troubled kids (the kind you see on UG a lot). outcasts, disaffected from peers and society at large, lots of angst, getting bullied sometimes. they generally come from messed up, broken homes. in any case, it's a psychological thing. the college ones are probably most definitely just mental disorders. not many people get bullied in college, but you can be alienated. there's been a lot of suicides at the universities closer to me. two people in my town got hit by trains. one kid just hanged himself the other day for no apprent reason. there's something wrong with a lot of the youth. perhaps it's all that existentialism BS in philosophy class. bad joke but maybe there is some truth to it.

It is pretty hard for me to understand that whole situation. These things don't happen often around here, so I don't have experience to share.

Is there anything done by the government to stop this, I mean some serious steps against it?
I can see some weirdo blaming marilyn manson and cannibal corpse for it, not that that would madke anything better.

well there's not just one cause. rarely is that the case for anything. i do think media has one part in it whether it be movies or music. it's not the cause. the government can't do too much except *points to first post*. but even then, it's just sticking a piece of bubblegum in the crack of the dam. school shootings are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the troubled lives of lots of people. there's a deeper problem here of despair in society. even if school shootings were stopped by govenment regulation somehow, it wouldn't change how messed up a lot of kids are.

Well besides the whole gun control thing (which I'm not talking about), there's not alot to do. The media will blame video games, tv, movies, and violent music, but violence has been around forever.

^^you guys probably want to hint at the terrible economic situation of some of these kids, right? That has been bugging me for years. One of the richest countries (if not THE richest country) in the world still has a big slice of the population living in filth and poverty. From what I hear on the media this won't change anyway soon. I guess this was by far not the last shooting this year.

anyone know how many people actually died? Someone said 15 injured and dead, but how many of the injured will probably survive?

I think most of the school shooting situations are out of anger and hatred of humanity.

I had said that there were "reports" of at least 15 people being hospitalized.
The shooter is indeed dead
I still don't know if any victims have been killed or not.

This all happened just two hours ago

No confirmed deaths other than the shooter yet. One station is reporting 2 dead, but it's the only one.


I've got a couple of friends that go to NIU. Luckily I've talked to all of them.

might be, but I'd wonder where that comes from.

thanks for pointing that out. Maybe we should just leave it be now. We'll have it more detailed tomorrow, we can still talk about this then.

13 victims with gunshot wounds to the head.


This means he was either a really good shot, or he executed them. Either way it makes me sick

I think most of it comes from teasing. Most of the gun men are outcasts and people that are constantly made fun of. People need to learn that words hurt
