    Jeztor brings up an interesting point.

    Regarding the shooting:
    Honestly, I get numb when I hear stuff like this. I realize that as time goes on, the deeds themselves don't ever change, just the means of accomplishing them. But I still don't understand what pushes someone so far...

    I don't know, there just aren't words.

    I have tons of violent games but that doesn't mean I'm crazy. Games don't make people like this.


    Well I am crazy, but not in the bad killer way.

    College students are not mature enough to carry weapons. Period.

    First this was a complete waste of innocent lives. Its horrible that things of this nature happen.

    Violent video games are not the problem. If anything the way that violence is portrayed in our culture, often times as a heroic action not as what often times it is a futile waste of life.

    I support the right of V. Tech to ban weapons from their campus. An institution has the right to ban weapons and this student had three choices as I see it. He could have found a different institution that would allow him to carry it (though I am not aware of any), carried the weapon and taken the risk of being expelled, or not carry his weapon and abide by the rules. He understood the risks and chose to continue to attend this university. He has no right to complain the rules did not change on him before this incident. He clearly felt that his graduate career was more valuable and more important to him than carrying his gun.

    Absolutely. If he was that concerned about his safety he would have gone to a different school. The college selection choice is one of the craziest, most random things ever. While in my higher education administration courses we studied research on the college selection process. Some of the factors that came up that might surprise you as factors that have had significant impacts are things such as boyfriends and girlfriends, wireless internet, close or far away from parents, campus security and safety, coke or pepsi products (not joking), oh, and occasionally, financial aide and academic programs. Apparently, among all the choices and reasons this guy chose to go to Virginia Tech, safety was not that important.

    I think it's absurd that this guy has the audacity to create such propaganda and claim he had such a lack of safety. Apparently he is alive if he is posting this. How many people died while being escorted by the SWAT teams he described? I'm not sure but I bet it's zero.

    What is most important at this time? Second amendment rights? Please.

    Apparently, Virginia Tech administrators should all be apologizing to the parents and students out there that we didn't have armed students that could have easily capped that punk.

    xvart.

    edit: oh, and by the way, it sounds like student senators were involved in the process of banning guns. Since senators are the elected body of students representing students there should be no talk of how guns should have been allowed on campus. This is neither the time nor the place to be talking about second amendment rights.
