20 People Killed On Virginia Tech Campus

Looks like we had a crazy cut loose in a school.

Police say at least 20 people were killed in two shootings on the Virginia tech campus this morning around 7am.

Officials say it began on one end of the 26-hundred acre campus...and then continued two hours later on the other side of the school.


Since it seems it was only one shooter, I have to wonder if an armed civilian could have made a difference. It seems that if one or two people could have shot back, it might have ended differently. As long as places forbid legal firearms, they are nothing but killing fields for psychos.
Just my opinion.

Update:
Looks like the death toll is at least 30. What a senseless mess...

My sympathies for everyone involved in this tragedy.

I won't go into politics, I'm sure you can guess my opinion on this shambles. Suffice to say I don't look to kindly on the administration of Virginia Tech.
