I hope you hear soon about your friend's daughter.
prayers for all involved.
I was in the vicinity of the North Hollywood shoutout. Same routine, stage the medics where it’s safe and bring the patients to them until you’re sure the scene is secure.
What would be odd about that, if that’s the way it happened, is there should of been allot of police on site an hour after the first shooting, not to mention the press. And would the students be going about their normal routine, or would they still be in lock-down mode with the shooter still not in custody? Something sounds fishy about the angry boyfriend rumor.
However, I refer to an ideology which has exclusively pushed forward an agenda which is grounded and fueled in violence against non muslims.
My statement stands.
Islam = violence
Seriously, for the good of your health, stay away from Yahoo! Forums.
And way too many victims. Unless that is the shooter was very mentally ill.
One or the two, he was very sick individual, girlfriend scenario or not, or this was terrorism.
This thread does concern politics geneous. Those students were left defenseless, because of gun grabbing clowns like Giuliani and his supporters.
May God comfort all who mourn, heal the wounded..both in body and in spirit
Prayers for those who are concerned about someone they know or love.
30 rounders have been around for a long, long, long time. They’re commonly available but not commonly purchased. Most of them are *much* longer than the gun they go in, so they’re not very popular. Generally speaking, they are not considered practical for carry usage, so they are limited to range use and, in the case of the police and foreign countries, use in fully-automatic machine pistol variants that are carried openly anyway.
I agree that not all students have the maturity to be carrying. I would hope that the process would prevent them from obtaining a permit. Not everyone that wants a permit gets one.
But if this is an attack, there would be more incidents if it was coordinated with Al Q. or something like it.
We shall see. All we can do now is pray.
We are all praying for the victims..the injured and the families.
I am sure there are a lot of fearful people right now..not knowing how to deal with it...but, not wanting it to happen again.
I DO understand your concerns about having students with guns...I think it is something we just aren’t used to.
You are doing terrific.
A Pakistani national enrolled in the University of Missouri - Rolla (Engineering School) made a bomb threat about 3 months ago. His friends and family say he was upset over his grades. Last I heard he was going to be deported but his friends and family are trying to keep him here.
Deport, deport, deport....
Thanks for post # 1246...
William Morva was the homeless creep who killed a cop near the campus of VA Tech last year.
Did they say his name?
Person w/ asian name arrested for bombmaking at V Tech last summer. Just putting it out there in case anyone sees a connection.
I thought that was pretty obvious.
