maybe i should of explained my post a little more cause im not an ignorant person. i didnt say that it was caused becuase of your gun laws but that still doesnt mean you dont need to tighten them up i just find it ridiculous you can own a shotgun or a rifle when youre 18 but you cant drink until youre 21. tell me where is the logic in that? heres a lethal weapon but youre not allowed to enjoy yourself with your mates ont he weekend. you understand what im syaing, its like they have it backwards. we have also had shootings in britain like this as well. anyone remember dunblane and look at how tight our gun restrictions are

I don't even remember any significant shootings here besides that one in Montreal, QB a few years ago. I'm pretty sure Newfoundland has never had one... well that I can remember. A few threats though...

I really dont bother with the guns issue, anyone anywhere can get them. IMO, he was a weak pathetic person who couldnt cope with "life", so what, life is hard, f*cking deal with it! I think he should have "gone out in style" by sparing innocent peoples lives and killed only himself, with a small degree of dignity. My sympathy goes out to the people who were affected by the shooting.

what's wrong with all these people now days and all these multiple random shootings? man, if it's that bad go off somewhere and end your own life if that's what you have to do, but to take all those innocent people with you for nothing is really nuts!

Unfortunately most people aren't as sensible. Its really a shame, and it seems like we are the only western country that has problems like this. If you don't like your job, find a new one, if you don't like your relationship killing other people isn't going to help.

Guns don't kill people. People kill people.
As bad as this event is, tighting guns laws will not stop this from happening. If some one wants a gun bad enough there are ways to obtain one.
People have become so isolated from each other. It gets harder and harder to discern when some one is having a problem. People need to get out and have face to face contact with other people. When you talk to some one and look in their eyes you can tell if something's wrong. You don't get that over the net.
But in my heart I feel the biggest issue is when you know something's wrong not doing a damn thing about it.
Get involved with your friends and family. Talk to them. Be with them. Then if you feel something's wrong, ACT!!! Don't blow them off. You may live to regret it. Or die...
