Earlier today, a student opened fire in a lecture hall at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Ill in a new Valentine's Day massacre:
The shooting took place during an introductory geology class at the university's Cole Hall in the campus center around 3:15 p.m. local time. Some 163 students were registered for the class.
"The assailant began firing into the assembled class from the stage — from the front," Peters said.
He described the incident as a "very brief rapid-fire assault that ended with the gunman taking his own life."
My heart goes out to the victims and their family - it's a senseless, crazy tragedy.
And I agree, this isn't "neat." However, I did appreciate Alex's empathy. Thank You.
If everyone carried a gun, gun crime now would seem insignificantly low.
If noone carried a gun, we don't know how many people he would have killed.
There are arguments on both sides, so lets not get into that one.
But morally, is it right to shoot someone who's shooting others? Does it not make you as bad/debased as the person doing the shooting to begin with?
It's all a question of angles...
thats right a gun + there are many types of criminals
some might think 2 some may not
but dont go comparing guns to drunk driving
Maybe we'd have a lot less accidents from drunk driving if everybody drove drunk, too.
