Shooting in a US university

Sickening. At the moment theres 31 dead, 32 if you count the cowardly bastard who killed himself by the sounds of it.

Largest shooting (not just school shooting, worst shooting period) in the history of the United States.

Horrible, but not particularly surprising. It's something of a perennial occurrence. I'm vaguely curious about why this stuff keeps happening.

It's all the Paxil and other pills they're all hopped up on, urinating it out and ultimately contaminating the water supply. (among other things)

Maybe it has something to do with retarded people obtaining guns!? Retarded mutants are in some cases worst than fresh, pure criminals. Retarded mutuant, almost always put their selfs in trouble for being so dumb and retarded and there are more of them. apparently they are too dumb and retarded to get a gun if it was hard to get. They use it (gun) in the attempt to suicide and/or express their sick psychologist illness and how a big loser they are.

33 last count not including the shooter.

this is particularly scary since it's only about a hundred miles from where I live.

They just interviewed two kids in one of the classes that he entered (one was shot in the arm but is out of the hospital already and ok) they said it was a 6'0 asian looking guy.

I was shocked when I saw this on the news this afternoon. Seriously disturbing. Can make a person think twice about American gun policy.

Before this the largest public mass shooting in US history was done by Charles Whitman at the Unisersity of Texas decades ago. He only killed about a dozen and injured ~ 60 by sniping them from the campus' now infamous clocktower. (interestingly, since the mass shooting UT has had 5 successful suicides, and 4 of them were from diving off the clocktower). Stanley Kubrick referenced Whitman in Full Metal Jacket.

Almost makes you wonder if that was the intent.

I'm pretty sure that this will mean fewer rights for Americans and not just concerning gun control. I remember that some places had a curfew after Columbine. Lawmakers will use any newsworthy event to come up with new restrictions. That Florida lawyer is already blaming videogames.

The said earlier the largest was in Killeen Texas with a count of about 23. I remember the name because I thought it was disturbingly ironic.
