How long will it take congress to sieze on this as a pretext for a gun ban?

The last similar news I heard was Virginia tech shooting in 2007. There were also some suicidal shootings on the same year by college students. Why does campus shooting now become a trend?

For the same reason that these loonies never attack a Marine Base or a police station or a national Guard base.

The people there shoot back.

School= gun free zone = target range.

...why is the south side of Syracuse a shooting gallery? Every night on the evening new there is a new report of another shooting. New York has one of the most retrictive gun laws and yet...

I personally abhore guns. Hunting and sport shooting is a totally different animal then guns obtained illegally by young people on the street who are shooting at each other everyday, even bringing them to school! Gun control is a naive and simplistic "solution" to a very serious and complicated dilemma!

After years of staying away from guns, the urge to target shoot got the better of me and I've bought 2 in the last week. Can we be friends now? :)
