It's an article about what happened, although most of you won't be able to read it (myself included, my Korean isn't that great).

앵커 멘트>

미국 총기난사 사건의 용의자 조씨는 범행 한달전부터 사격연습까지 한 것으로 드러났습니다.

또 범행 당일에 쏜 총알은 2백발 가량으로 추정되고 있습니다.

워싱턴에서 윤제춘특파원이 보도합니다.

<리포트>

31명이나 숨진 노리스홀, 조씨가 사용한 것으로 보이는 탄창이 17개나 발견됐습니다.

일부는 탄알이 한꺼번에 33발까지 장전되는 것도 있었습니다.

경찰은 이를 근거로 조씨가 적어도 200발이 넘는 탄환을 쐈을 것으로 추정했습니다.

피해자들은 대부분 3발 이상의 총상을 입었습니다.

탄환도 일반용과는 달리 탄두가 톱니처럼 파여 살상력이 매우 높은 것 들입니다.

범행에도 거침이 없었다고 목격자들은 전했습니다.

<인터뷰> 에반스(총격 부상자) : "(조 씨는) 재빨리 문으로 들어와서 아무말도 하지 않고 총을 쏴대기만 했습니다."

더욱 놀라운 것은 당초 알려진 것과는 달리 조씨가 지난 3월 13일 9밀리 권총을 구입하기 한달 전인 2월 초에 이미 22밀리 권총을 인터넷으로 구입했다는 겁니다.

경찰은 조씨가 3월 중순 대학 부근 로아노크의 사격장에서 사격 연습을 한 사실도 밝혀냈습니다.

<녹취> 마켈(조 씨에게 판매한 총기상) : "블랙스버그 사격 연습장은 조 씨가 사는 곳에서 20분 거리입니다. 사격 연습을 하기가 쉬웠을 것입니다."

조씨의 범행 준비가 훨씬 치밀했다는 얘기입니다.

무엇이 그를 이렇게 계획적이고 잔인한 살인범으로 만들었는지, 의문은 더욱 커지고 있습니다.

워싱턴에서 KBS 뉴스 윤제춘입니다.

the system is screwed.. making it so that you can only do something after they have comitted the crime is ludracous, i hope they pass the law they are debating over here at the moment, about being able to lock up mentally unstable people before they comit the crime, it makes much more sense... why wait til they murder someone before doing something about it??


i cant understand the police over there either, two hours between the shootings, yet they didnt close down the campus, or even start evacuating it... that is crazy...


I do agree with you about the system being screwed up, but you also need to remember "Innocent until proven guilty" I mean if we would to start locking up people for just being mentally unstable, we would not have enough prison space. Yes something had to be done as soon as people noticed he is not all there...but like you sad "the system is screwed...." Yes it terrible what happened, and my heart goes out to the family’s that lost there love ones, but what you suggesting is just not reasonable.

It's not hard to get someone to get you guns if you know the right people. And a 9mm pistol somewhat like that, hell, I could have one if I really wanted.


IMHO, it's not anyone's fault except the killer's. You can go on blaming whoever you want, but it all comes down to the fact that the guy was a f**kup. A mistake.
Anyone who was normal would realize that the world is not a kind place, and just because someone says something mean about you doesn't mean you should kill them. My 2 year old cousin knows that. The guy just needed to grow up, he was an immature little b****.

I agree it was the guy's mistake. I also think that the gun laws should tighten up a bit. I said in another thread that they should start getting more in depth background checks. If you are mentally unstable you should not be able to purchase a gun.

I'm pretty sure it's already like that.

As I said before though, it's really not hard to get someone else to get a gun for you if you pay them a few bucks.

Someone interviewed the guy that sold Chu the gun. He claimed that he was a nice, neat looking kid who didn't look like trouble. Lol, image plays out in everything and so, he sold the guns to him--so he claims. Seems so easy to purchase guns these days . But clearly, this kid is mentally disturbed according to all the video from msn.com. I watched through all of it and man, he is one depressed kid. Lots of hate and anger which eventually projected out towards VT students and professors.

We understand that the state of Virginia has very lax gun laws, apparently it's common practice to to buy your son a gun for his tenth birthday, & people can buy a maximum of one gun per month, are these actual facts?, the media would have us believe they are.
