A Sad Day in US History

As I'm sure you've all heard by now of the shooting that occurred today at Virgina Tech. At 33 deaths in all, including the shooter, it is the worst mass shooting in US history. Our thoughts go out to everyone at Virginia Tech.
This shooting is absolutely frightening, because in essence, it can happen anywhere. However, I really think that there could have been better communication to the students and those on campus. I mean, an email? That's it? That is the most indifferent response to an extremely dangerous event I have ever heard of! For those students in their dorms, getting the email may have prevented them from leaving, but for those students in class, without their computers, they pretty much have no way of knowing what's going on and would thus be wandering the campus completely ignorant to the events unfolding.
Basically this all boils down to, hello, better gun control. This is getting so out of hand. It is unfortunate that it has to take a huge tragedy like this to shake people from their apathy, but I really hope that changes will take place to reduce the amount of innocent deaths.

virginia has some of the worst gun control laws in the country. you can buy a handgun every month so long as your background check goes through, and at gun shows a background check isnt even required. brilliant planning, just brilliant.

Congrats bro rg you got PERTAMAX...! hehehehe...
