CNN front page.

CNN story.

CNN reports 22 confirmed dead in the shootings.

That's quite a tally. Normally they don't get more than a handful, but this person had a plan.

I'm watching now....crazy sad...

What I don't understand is how he was able to shoot some people in one hall, and then shoot more in another hall two hours later.....Sounds shifty to me....

How depressing. It's sad how they were able to kill so many students.

Oh my God... I can't even fathom having that sort of thing happen at my school. What makes people do things like this?

Yup, he actually said that.

Thats the new wave in Journalism. Everyone has a camera-phone, and many people submit their clips to the news centers. It lets news-rooms get in closer without having to actually get in closer

This guy definitely had a plan if he killed 22 people--what kind of sicko thinks of this crap?

The world is such a wonderful place.

*EDIT* PbN and other actual news sources are claiming a possible second shooter...

Either way, it's not getting less screwed up as it's coming out.

That's pretty incredibly frigged up. From the sounds of it the authorities really botched it by lifting the lockdown.  It should not take that long to find an neutralize one guy. Hopefully lessons will be learned here. I mean, the odds of anybody sucessfully hijacking an airliner ever again are probably gone, hopefully we can figure out a way to at least minimize casulties in incidents like this.

I'm giving it about six hours before nancy pelosi intruduces a semi-auto ban, even if we find out he used a shotgun.

^ Maybe it was a semi-auto shotgun.

JK. But this probably will turn into more ammo for the gun control camp.

These types of things just leave me shaking my head...  I just can't personally imagine taking 29+ lives...

I guess we'll need to blame Grand Theft Auto and semi auto's, cause we all know this wouldn't have happened in a world without violent video games and *legal* semi-automatic weapons...

Seriously, how long before the video game connection is made?  I give it 4 days...

ha, someone on Fox early said they suspected it was someone with an assault rifle like an AK47, or M16. So they said it was probably someone in the military.

anyway, it is just a massacre in my opinion

Well, it's on the political radar. The Senate just had a comment and a moment of silence and Bush commented earlier and is making a statement at 4:15....

This guy was probably extremely mentally ill though, which will somewhat subvert the need for a scape goat, so we may not see as many tie raids on games and guns....
