    I dont know if this is the right place to post this, but i want still stand still for these people who died, and all surviving relatives. HOW is this possible, to get a gun and kill all these people on an university, i know its legal to own a gun in the USA but still, its a crazy guy for sure. and how could he come in/break in?

    my apologizes if its not proper english, but ive checked it twice, im from holland B)

    lets prey for all these people. and then you have question that now every american is squeezed awake from the dream that the rifle law is the best law ever, cause in my opinion it isnt, but thats for you guys to discuss -_-

    lets pray all, for these people.

    I've been following this story since this morning, last i checked the death toll went up to 32 and 24 injured. My question is how could they let this happen? I know they shot and killed the gunmen but christ on a cracker that person had must have been mentally unstable to pull a stunt like that at one of the largest universities in the U.S. My thoughts and prayers go out to the the victims family and friends.

    Im watching the press conference right now and they said that the gunmen took his own life, but what i dont understand is why the hell are they not looking for a motive or finding out whether he was a student or not. A big lack of security but that doesn't not justify this incident.

    And on come the cries of "ban the assault weapons" again, though a handgun was used.

    RIP to the victims.

    Yes, it happen this Morning.

    To my knowledge the one thing they found out about this event was the gunmen was a young asian man. I can also see why it would be hard to escape something like this, they said that some of the doors chained shut from the inside.

    Yeah it is really sad. Heard about it in the middle of school. Now other students have to worry about copycat shootings.

    He was actually looking for his girlfriend. He went through all of the classes looking for her and just shot at people.
