    Default Bit too close to home

    My neice emailed me saying if it's on the news do not be alarmed Tom (my nephew is ok). Seems at his college in Washington there has been some mad gunman shooting students and seems about 30 are dead!!!!!

    She said that my nephew made a hasty exit from the Campus and is with a friend about 2 miles away.

    Just makes you think really, why or what is it that drive people to do such things!!

    It's either toys outta the pram, political or ridicule that will have caused it.

    Just overheard some yappy chav offering his mate a tool to go do someone outside a shop, gang of 7 of them, all unwashed and unemployed, the DRAFT is coming boys, and it'll make men of some of you.

    good to hear your nephew is ok.
    but i'm sure all the bleeding hearts in the good ole u.s of a will be saying what a tradgedy this is but i'm sure nothing will be done about the gun laws there, it has happend time and again but still they do nothing and the worst of it is that there gun culture is growing in this country at an alarming rate .

    In the latest news, some bloke was interviewed that claimed that if the students were allowed to carry guns, this wouldn't have happened - I'm amazed at the levels of stupidity of some people. They lose 30,000 a year due to gun crime but fail to see a problem!!

    Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with responsible people owning registered guns, but the States make a joke out of responsibility & allow anyone to own a gun.

    Just a snip from my sisters email ,

    Yes, today has been exhausting, but thank God Tom called us to let us know that he was ok before we even knew there was a problem. He was told to clear off campus be a police officer in full riot gear coming into class with a rifle looking for the Norris building, which by the way was right next door. Tom fled immediately, met up with a couple of friends, who had a car very nearby so he went with them into the car. As they were leaving they saw a chap come out of the Norris building and try to get into a nearby police car when he couldn't he went back into the building. It would have been a very different story if he had been on campus. I have spoken with him every hour since he has been back on campus to make sure he is ok. As time has gone on he seems to have opened up and is telling his story now. He had a long chat with Katie a while ago, but no matter what this will ultimately affect him and all of them. He doesn;t know if he knows anyone who was injured or killed yet as they have not released the names yet, so we may have that hurdle to cross yet. Left Atlanta because he didn't feel safe and here he is two shootings on campus since September! Is nowhere safe?

    Just really does hit home how close it could of been and like said thoughts go to the families who have lost loved ones.
