First there was someone killed at Purdue University in Indiana yesterday, which is not far from where I live. The person arrested for the shooting is from the Dayton area. Today there was a report of shots fired at the University of Oklahoma. They haven't found anyone with injuries or signs that there was gun fire there. I work at a college. My mom is starting to get real worried about my safety. The college has plans in the case there is a shooter. They also practice a shooting scenerio with the local police every year. There have been reports of all kinds of senseless shootings all over the country. Does this kind of thing make you nervous? Are you worried that this might happen where you live? Tell me what you think about it all.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion so no bashing please.
