(CNN) -- A lone gunman is dead after police said he killed at least 21 people Monday during twin shootings on the Virginia Tech campus -- the deadliest school attacks in U.S. history.

Wow.

While CNN is reporting that 21 have been killed, others are reporting as high as 30.

Actually Xeo misquoted the article, it said there were 31.

Hope you don't mind I changed the thread tile a tiny bit Xeo.

Anyway, that's a lot of people to kill.

Hm, turns out it _was_ a lone gunman and 32 is the total count as of now.

A guy I was talking to said it had something to do with his girlfriend. I seriously hope not, because that's the worst reasoning for shooting people ever.

At least have a good reason.. like being bored.

"I hate Mondays" by The Boomtown Rats. That's the explaination. I mean I hate Mondays a lot. That's why they took my gun away.

On a serious note. It is a real shame that people lost their lives over this guy going through..whatever he was going through.

Xeo quoted it right for the time he posted it, but CNN keep editing the article. The last edit was 7:21 p.m. EST and they've since changed the number to 33.

Well I think the whole thing is f***ing ridiculous. About 28 people on my campus were involved in a game called zombies versus humans (website: zombies.darkunderworld.net) where some of us carry nerf guns to shoot the zombies. Our campus safety department cleared us to play when we talked about having nerf guns on campus and playing with them outside. We've been playing since 10:00pm (Eastern) on Friday April 13 and we had to suspend the game because they didn't want us carrying "guns." Its total bulls**t. I mean, don't get me wrong, the shootings were a terrible thing. But to stop some college students from having some clean, safe fun with nerf guns and water pistols? WTF is all I can say. This country (USA) is really getting too paranoid and I'm shocked that the American public (as a whole) is so incredibly naive and paranoid.

If you can't tell, I'm really pissed about this right now. Admins/mods, feel free to edit this if you feel it necessary.

Wow, that is just so messed up. My mom told me about this... of course then she tried to tell me where Virginia is.

As for the nerf gun thing, it could be worse. My highschool would have suspended you for even bringing one on campus... even if it was bright pink.

How ironic that it is just days away from the colombine shooting.

I hear that it was because of controversy between the shooter and one of the teachers, though thats just a rumor.

This kind of thing is horrible.

Hard to think, but the lives of hundreds of people, the families and friends, will have to live with this forever.

I don't know if I'll ever understand this thing we call humanity. There are so many incidents of fucked up people like this who think it's okay to go about killing other people. It's just, wrong.

My roomate last year just so happened to be from that college too.. I've seen several people from there that I know. Makes it kind of scary. It's always, you hear about these things. But it's not such a big world, and it's really scary when you realize you're somehow indirectly related to what happens. It's not just a horror story, it's more real and hits home more. I can only imagine if any of those people were his friends. I don't suppose I'll know, but it's scary either way.

I really don't see any reason to go about killing other people like that.. It's just not right. He must have been really messed up in his head. And then only to kill himself? Why bring everyone else down with him? I don't understand people

I was so shocked and sadden by this news. I really don't know what else to say. It's a shame it happened. Though maybe I'm being overly paranoid, but I am a bit scared now since this type of thing sometimes follows a trend.

**shrugs** It usually does.

This has been on the news all day. It really is something that gets you to stop and think. I went to my morning classes, then came home, found out about it, and had to go back to school for Japanese. It's like all we talked about.

I hate how people loose there lives for somebody's problems. Especially there problems with a girlfriend.

And as far as the nerf thing goes my school would also suspend me for just bringing a squirt gun on campus. Schools these days don't take any chances.

Not only that but virginia gun laws are actually lenient as hell.
selling a gun to someone under 16: "A fine no more than 50 dollars but no less than 10"
shooting someone[by accident I guess, as long as it's not considered assault]: "a fine of no more than 100 dollars or jail time of no more than a year"
pointing a gun at someone is a 25 or so dollar fine as is owning a silencer.

police can't limit concealed weapons
no liscence or registration is required to buy a gun
"private" gun sales go off record

it does say no one is allowed to knowingly bring a gun onto a schoolbus or into a school but even then it's just another fine( 1,000$ )

Though it is totally rediculous to stop your playing for "safety", it was likely stopped for the sake of sympathy.

I felt really bad when I saw the news about Virginia Tech but I need to know. How the fuck the gunman got through security. If college students need to improve safety they need security cameras, and more security. Metal detectors wont help because they most likely to climb through gates and some other shit.

In the hospital there is not a single person with less than 3 bullets in them. This guy really wanted everyone dead.
