    You'd think after all the school/university shootings there have been over the years, the Government would have done something about it by now.

    They have.

    The Republican think-tank determined that the majority of US university graduates vote Democrat, therefore by doing nothing other than encouraging more gun sales, they are enhancing McCain's chances.

    This happened rather close to me. Nobody I know was injured, but a friend of a friend thinks she passed him by on her way out of the campus.

    What's going to be done about it anyway? Nothing.

    Probably not, but I have a short fuse about such issues, especially ones that take place in my neighborhood and when I see a post like yours that seems a bit cold hearted, well go figure. You probably could've clarified a bit what you meant though, as it sounds more like "its not that big of a deal that 5 people were killed". At second glance, you were probably talking about gun sales, but as I said you could've been clearer.

    No, you're just used to it because it seems to happen every few weeks. If not a university campus, then it's a shopping mall, or an office block.

    Still, it's all profit for the ammunition manufacturers and the funeral directors.

    My aunty and uncle are funeral directors, and have the police contract for probably the roughest city in NZ. Couple of weeks ago they were dealing with two stabbing deaths in two days. As my aunty said, "Gee, young kids - they're dying to get in the news these days".
