this is such a tragedy that i cannot even bring myself to watch any of the coverage.
we need to pray for all of these families and in fact, we need to pray for the world we live in.

Yes, very disturbing indeed.  I can't even imagine what could bring a person to do such horrible things.  I'm sure we will soon find out, but then again maybe we never will.

I just found out a few hours ago that one of my relatives was one of the victims.  It is always sad to see horrible events on TV but you never know how much more of an impact it has until it hits close to home.

When you declare places like college campuses "gun free zones" where it is unlawful even for those who have a concealed weapons permit to legally  carry their weapon, you are telling maniacs like this korean guy that he can go to a place like this and slaughter numerous people without any resistance because everyone else is unarmed. If there had been one person there who was armed and trained to use a weapon, you could have saved most of those lives that were lost. But I can hear the whining liberals already. "We need more gun control".  No amount of gun control laws are going to stop criminals from getting illegal guns, but so many people just don't get it. The ONLY way to stop these kind of tragedies is to let law abiding citizens arm and defend themselves.

PacMan, I am sorry to hear that your family was affected by this tragedy. 

Oldfriend, I pretty much agree with your post.  So sad.

i do think they have given way too much attention to the gunman though. 
we will never understand why he did what he did.
i think its awful that the families of the victims have to relive this tragedy daily by turning on the tv or seeing a newspaper headline.
his 15 minutes of fame should be over.
time to turn our attention to the brave innocent souls who perished at the hands of a madman.

I have seen several specials which paid attention to each and every one of the victims.  It showed their photos and told a little bit about the victims.

Pacman,
So sorry to hear about your loss... ;-( 
My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family...
You are right-- you never know how such an event could affect you personally
and it's terrible that you have had to go through this...

One of my dad's closest friends is a professor at VT.
His office is in the building next to where the shootings occurred.
He would have been in his office that morning, except for the fact that
he had a doctor's appointment that day.  I was relieved to hear that he was okay...
