I just saw a news report on a family in my area who has a daughter at the college.  During their interview, they mentioned something about a girlfriend, but it wasn't really clear what they meant.

That's as credible as Fox News.

Anyways. What is it about April that makes people crazy. Oklahoma City, Lincoln's assasination, Columbine...

I normally try to be civil and respectful on this forum (and elsewhere) but will the two of you please shut up?  Your ignorance is showing.

I'm calling shens... VT is a gun free zone. This couldn't possibly have happened. 

Too many sheep, not enough sheepdogs. One person, just one with a CCW could have saved dozens of lives. Or for that matter, a couple of unarmed folks who decided to pull a flight 93 on the perp.

I just hope if I'm ever in a situation that I have the balls to go down fighting... None of this kneel in a line and get executed crap.

One jackass shoots 60 people and expends god knows how many rounds and the police dont even engage him. Granded you could kill a lot of people trapped in a building, but from the cell phone vids I'm seeing the police were taking cover and not moving while there's shooting going on in the background. Why you're not running balls out and engaging this guy I have no idea.

Sorry I have to do this.

But check out this fat cop. A whole bunch of cops show up for this shooting at the same time. And porky the pig takes his time and then stops half way to take a break.

I bet you if you said the donut shop was on fire he would be the first one there.

Same here.

I would rather risk my life to save a few others. Besides if he is going to start killing, might as well try and take the gunman down. I just hope more people around me would help.

I'm not saying how the police acted was right. But it's funny to hear all this "going down in a blaze of glory" stuff. This macho hero stuff is all good until you are actually in the situation and you realize how much you want to live. Of course you want to help, but hostage or police, it's not always the movies.

Oh boy, here comes the traditional tippmann forum boasting of how each forumer here would have pulled out their deagle and had it out with the shooter, and would have saved the day.

You do no good by adding another casualty to the situation.

Generally agree - but in bri's defense, he specified stated that he HOPED he would have the courage to do so, rather than unfoundedly declaring what he would have done.

I will agree on Bri's behalf.
