I can't believe this YET AGAIN is happening! What is happening to our youth? Why arent they able to talk with their parents when problems arise or school counselors or a neighbor a friend?! I hope to God these young people who were hurt recover and hope theyre no fatalities. Gosh, I am in disbelieve all over again. God Bless these kids.

Once again, this is not making me feel a bit bad about my choices to pull my daughter out of school and homeschool her as of this year. This is beyond ridiculous and out of hand.

Oh, that is a brilliant solution...give people in a stressful environment guns.

My heart goes out to those wounded and their families. I do find it amazing that all were head shots, but no fatalities (reported so far).

I can already hear the right wingnuts...blaming it on <insert name of their favorite bogey man>.

Don't you ever get tired of reciting something over and over that has no point in fact? Get a brain.

From CNN
18 shot, gunman killed self at Northern Illinois University
A person shot 18 people Thursday at Northern Illinois University's DeKalb campus outside Chicago, then fatally shot himself, the school said, citing police.
Many victims were shot in the head, said Theresa Comitas, spokeswoman for Kishwaukee Community Hospital, about 10 minutes from the school.
At least three victims are in critical condition, eight are in stable condition and six are in good condition, a hospital official tells CNN.
One of the wounded was transferred by helicopter to Rockford Hospital, she said. There were no fatalities at the hospital, she said.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the DeKalb County coroner's office said no fatalities had been immediately reported.
A law enforcement official being briefed on the situation told CNN that the shooter used at least one shotgun. The official declined to be identified further because the incident was still developing.
The gunman "just kicked the door open, just started shooting. All I really heard was just people screaming, yelling get out," he said.
"Close to 30 shots were fired."
"He was wearing a black shirt, dark pants, black hat.... He started with a shotgun, then turned to a pistol."
osie Moroni, a student at the school, told CNN she was outside Cole Hall near the King Commons at 2:30 p.m.(3:30 p.m. ET) when she heard shots coming from the classroom she had intended to enter.
The shot was followed by "a lot of people screaming," then people ran out the doors yelling, "He's got a gun, call 9-1-1," she said.
"It was complete chaos ... it's very scary here right now."

Or, maybe he thought he was still online playing the game!! What's wrong with people nowadays, put you're fists up and hit someone if you have to. Don't act like a coward with a gun! Seriously! This is so disgusting!

It used to be (maybe a hundred years back) if something like this happened then someone would remind everyone to keep their guns nearby (to protect themselves !)

Watch the shrills from the antigun nuts. They will demand we do exactly the opposite of what we should do (keep our weapons at the ready).

See the movie 'I AM LEGEND'(Will Smith)*****
