This is one horrible incident. So, sad for those who got affected. Even schools are not so safe to go or send your kids. My deepest condolenses to all the victims and their family. I pray for all their souls to rest, and for the family members to survive this tragedy.

I lived in Washington DC five years ago when a sniper on the loose terrorised the greater Washington area. For nearly a month, we were hesitant to go to the grocery stores or even to get out of the car to fill the petrol tank. Having been through that trauma, I can understand how the victims of Virginia Tech must have felt in their final hours. May their souls rest in peace and may God give their families the strength they need in this difficult period. I also hope the loss of 30 odd lives will make Americans realise the dire need to tighten their gun control laws.

It's a very horrible and sad tragedy. My deepest condolences go to the victim's family and friends and may God give them the strength during this difficulty time. May their soul rest in peace.

I am not after put the blame on somebody but according to the newspapers, the first shouting happened at 7 o clock and the second was around 9.26 pm so the campus administration could have done something more to evacuate the whole university. It wouldn't take 2hours to evacuate.


33 people was shot and killed. I hope the government will make some action regarding the gun and weapon sales and law in US. They should seriously do something with their weapon politics to control it, that why so many violence, gang problems, ghettoes, school massacre etc than in many other countries according to the statistics.

Well said Meli & Bonheur.

It is high time US Govt tighten the laws esp in weapon. The last time it happened in Concubine(?) and the Amish community. That itself should have waken up the authorities, but few years later it is still happening.

My heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims for the loss of their loved ones. I pray that their souls rest in peace.

I am also praying for the soul of the attacker for he needs it.
