Big school, something like 26,000 students. No really significant details on the sequence of events. Lots of TV coverage, but it is constant repeating and rerunning of a couple of tapes, interviews and a regular jacking up of the death toll as time goes on. Horrible. I can't imagine having a kid at that school, and my heart goes out to those parents. Jim

Up to 33. My guess is it was an automatic shotgun in a crowded area. I have seen few details other than the incredible death toll.

just heard, can;t believe it happened...i know there's a big gun culture in the US...seriously do the US members feel something should be done about gun ownership? Cos i just read what Bush said about the shooting but he didnt mention what should be done about this...i know americans love their guns but aren't you guys scared this may happen to you or your kids?

Nope, we're not really scared. If everybody owned a gun then robbery and rapes would drop down drastically. I truly hope they don't go tough on the gun people because that would truly be bullshit. Even if we had strict gun control this kid would still obtain a gun some way or another if his intent was to mass murder.

You guys should keep in mind that America has way more people than the average country out there. Hence, the crimes are more likely to happen here.....

Ah yes, just what we need,more fear mongering.

Truly tragic what happened but if the guy had plowed down that many people with a vehicle,would you suggest no vehicle ownership?

true i know what u're getting at...but it seems school shootings have happened a few times in the US...in countries with no or a minute gun culture you never hear about a dude plowing down people or killing them with another weapons at schools...would it concern you if a school shooting happened everyday?
