These guys always do it in the wrong order i.e. blast everyone THEN blast themselves, if they did the second step first the world would be a far better place.

Agreed, you probably have a bigger chance of getting caught in a shootout while out shopping than at school, and a much greater chance at dying in a road accident, so it shouldn't be high in your list of fears.

What you should be afraid of is the federal government using this tragedy to limit your constitutional rights.

I think you would vote for Ron Paul if you were from the U.S. He goes on and on about our rights, and how we defiantly should be able to own firearms, strange thing is his really anti war.
anti war, pro-guns :?:

Interestingly the campus is supposedly a "safe" no gun zone.There we go, limit a law abiding citizen's ability to carry a weapon, only to get them blown a way by the guy who doesn't follow the law.Sounds a heck of alot like bureaucracy to me.

And the ACLU whines that its society's fault for selling video games and making guns so easily available(which by the way isn't that easy anymore).Anybody else see a problem with individuals actually taking responsibility for there actions?

yes but not in the way you imply.

pharmaceutical company's should be taking responsibility for their actions.

rant on
antidepressants .

remember that word,"antidepressants "
The rampage shootings have one thing in common, ,anti depressants .

The really F&*%ED part is the roaring silence of news services ,the medical community ,or any part of our goverment to mention the fact

Not a hard fact to check,Maybe some one will find a case where anti-depressants were not involved.
I have not.
http://ssristories.com/index.php Makes it even easter

Remember that word,"antidepressants "
the next time it happens. not a case of if but when.

Most of the time they do.
anti-depressants and suicide seem to be another unreported issue

And one more.
Both this shooter and the Virginia Tech shooter bought accessories from the same website.My guess is Cheaper than Dirt.I wonder if someone will sue Cheaper than Dirt if it comes out they sold to both guys?We all know how irresponsible firearm accessory sites are...*sarcasm*

Antidepressants may be a factor, but I'm guessing these types of situations usually boil down to bad parenting. Either the parents of the shooter or the kids that pick on him.
