    Dear God, that's just horrible. Thoughts go out to the families of the victims. Really not much more you can say.

    This is the second shooting at the school over the last year. There was one in aug, and there was a reported bomb scare at the school last week

    It's up to 31 people killed now


    According to a guy I know who goes to V Tech, this is the story and what happen according to him

    At 8 am there was a single shooting. It's believed it was an arguement between a BF/GF and the guy shot the girl and ran away. They put the school on lock down but opened it soon after. At 10 am, the same guy came back to the school and shot through a class room. Soon the cops on campus caught him and shot him down.

    What I don't get is, how did this kid get a gun to shoot about 50 people. They are saying 31 dead, adn 29 injured. To shoot 50 people at once it would take a pretty big gun, and they aren't easy to get. Does anyone know how hard it is actually to get a gun to shoot down 50 people at once

    In America, it's too easy.

    Actually assault weapons would do the trick, and are easily available in the U.S. What I don't get is how he was able to do TWO DIFFERENT shooting sessions. I mean you would think after the first incident the whole school would be in lock-down and crawling with cops. How could the guy pull off another round of shooting an hour later?!?
