  • Nothern Illinois School Shooting

    Just saw on the news that a gunman wounded 20 people at Nothern Illinois, which is about 50 miles north of where I live. No one has been killed though, and the gunman took his own life.

    I have some friends who go there so I'll be calling to see if they're ok.

    When will it end? I mean seriously, this just makes me sick. Coward, takes his own life after shooting other people.

    Wow, two school shootings in 1 year's span. That is just disturbing.

        That's what it says in the title of this thread my friend...

        Just talked to a friend of mine who has classes in Cole Hall, and he said he heard the gun shots while going to his next class.

        Wow....

          People just don't value life anymore, and it's a sick ******* world we live in.

          Hopefully everyone is ok who was wounded.

            I work with the University of Florida's police department a lot and after the VT shooting I asked a buddy of mine who is a cop with their police department (I work with Gainesville Police Department) he told me that it is very easy for someone to just walk on most campuses and just start shooting...because most public university's have open campus policies...

            it's sad really but luckily the only life lost was the shooters...

              Absolutely terrible thing to have happen. I hope everyone recovers and there only remains one death.

                You have to check out this proposed bill for Arizona. I just cannot fathom the idiocy of it.

                  Something similar to this was proposed at my school. I couldnt believe it. Luckily it didnt pass. You gotta wonder who actually thinks thats a good idea? Some lame ass who thinks he'd be the hero in a situation like this.

                      Campus was supposedly shut down in December after a previous threat. Horrific tragedy and lets all hope this trend does not continue.

                          That is a great law. If you have a permit to carry a concealed weapon, you have passed extensive background checks. Private citizens returned fire at the UT gunman, forcing him to take cover. There was a higher homicide rate during the Middle Ages then there is in even the most crime ridden cities in the US. Guns don't kill people, people kill people.

                          Outlawing guns(or even outlawing on campus) only takes gun out of the hands of people who obey the law. Those are the people you don't have to worry about shooting people. Like me, as soon as I graduate, I am getting a license to carry a concealed weapon, and I will carry one with me at all times(except when I go to bars and the like, alcohol+guns is just irresponsible.)

                          It isn't people don't value life anymore, it is people have never valued life(unless their own, of course.) We are not in some sick depraved time. We are only in the time of the media. Like I said before the homicide rate was much higher in the Middle Ages. The only difference? The people only knew about the ones that happened directly next to them. If this were the 1800's people outside of Illinois wouldn't have even heard about this. There has always been murders, and their always will be murders. Saying that gun lead to violence is like saying forks lead to obesity.

                          Hope all your friends are ok.
                          I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

                              Another bad shooting. First the Colleges started shooting, then the churches, then the mall, what next? McDonald's, is there any decency in this world? Christ, maybe the government should make it mandatory to go to a therapist.
