And two schools on lock down I wonder why

StealthPolarBear Fri 22-Jan-16 22:17:22

Why on earth is emergency on quotes?

Oh I see. Wonder what the morning brings

The gunman shot his siblings before shooting two at the school

Am I the only one who can see this thread?

Horrific. Those poor students and staff.

It's early. People will wake up, take this in and feel as upset as you. It seems they have a suspect in custody - he or she has a huge amount to live with for the rest of their lives. A terrible thing to do.

And the town mayor says his daughter of 23 is one of the victims. She's a teacher there.

The reports make it sound like a very isolated community - the type of place where everyone knows each other - there will be a lot of people hurting sad

Yes I thought that eve. Very isolated - almost makes you think that's why the news is coming out so slowly too

School shootings wherever they are are a tragedy because you think about the huge amount of potential years of life that has been stolen away by some scumbag. sad

Despite spending some time in Canada, it had totally passed me by that civilian gun ownership was allowed. Daft really, I should have known that.

I suppose a lot of people still 'live off the land' there, so need guns to hunt. But then tragedies like this happen...it beggars belief that anyone would go into a school with a gun. Fight with your family/mates/strangers in the street - well maybe, but to purposely target a school? It's beyond me sad

I thought our northern neighbors were quite tight in what they allowed civilians to own?
