Why is it that people now get all up in arms about a conflict shooting but seem to not recognize gangs have been doing this for a long time and if you think some law is going to stop that you need to take off the rose colored glasses. Laws only have power if people choose to obey them.

Cars are not made to kill people they are meant for transportation, guns on the ore hand are.

Quoting MiddleAgeMess:

There was an 86 car pileup where I live yesterday, one lady was killed & they had to perform CPR on a child, should we ban cars? It's easier to get a drivers license than a CCP after all.

This is not like the other school shootings.


Apparently two guys were fighting both pulled out guns. 3 people were hurt, one of the shooters got away


 This situation was made easier by Texas' lax gun laws. Everyone can own a gun, and you can carry concealed without too much effort legally. This is what happens when everyone is armed, and then they lose their tempers.

And they wonder why I prefer taking my classes online? Scares me being at the campus for my lab classes. Thank goodness they are mostly at night when it's calm and less people. :-(

Depends on who's driving the car if the intended result is transportation or death. My bff's husband tried to run her off a bridge in his truck.

Carving knives are meant to slice & dice meat, should they be illegal?

Who shoots up a community college? I mean, its community college and its week 2 of the semester. What the hell was the shooter so stressed about? "Waaaah, reading the syllabus pushed me over the edge!"

The best campaign to stop this nonsense would be a "Stay home and shoot yourself, dumbass" campaign. So sick of all of these shootings.

I'm local and they are saying now they think its gang related...

Two guys got into an argument and one pulled a gun. The other pulled a gun as well and they shot at each other...

What is your major? A lot of our science classes are now available 100% online with take home lab kits or 99% online and you only go in 3x per semester for an intensive lab day for things you simply can't safely do at home.

I think colleges are simply getting greedy. We can fit x students into the buildings but we could fit another couple thousand students in online classes. But yeah, online classes are a million times safer.

Also... I know people don't want to hear this, but this isn't odd.

There are shootings and stabbings and murders every single day. Just like there were 20 years ago. The only difference now is MEDIA. We have almost INSTANT media coverage so we all know about every detailed event nowadays...

 I get so tired of this old argument. Cars were not made with the intention of killing people and animals. Guns were. End of story.

So you've got two people shooting at each other. Cops roll up... how do they decide who is the good guy and who is the bad guy?
