The random violence that is ever increasingly prevalent in our country has reached the Pitt campus today. An unidentified shooter opened fire in the Western Psych Hospital lobby injuring 7 and killing 2 including himself. No one and nowhere is immune. For developing news -

Yeah I really don't get why this type of thing is so common. We really have a knack for creating wackos.

Don't want to start the Rush wantabes yelling but what the hell.... At some point in Ameriacan civilized life we are going to stop letting everyone own and use guns.

Now go ahead and call me names but think about how many of our own citizens have died as a result of the 2nd amendment. Even had a Congrsswoman shot recently and not with paper airplanes.

Sub, if the guns used to do violence were obtained illegally, then laws permitting certain individuals to own guns do not appear to be the problem. Just like drugs, people who wish to do harm with guns will find ways to obtain them regardless of what the law says. The 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with this.
