I have just read that 25 Virginia Tech students have been shot dead by an unknown gunman. It is the single deadliest peacetime shooting in US history.

Edit: Death toll has risen above 30.

here we go again another knee jerk reaction for gun control coming up , in the UK and australia we have some of the strongest gun laws in the world , all brought about by a knee jerk reaction to the port arthur shootings, 10 years down the track and the figures are in , despite the strong gun controls and the gun buy back scheme gun crime has risen 46% , they have just realised that the majority of firearms used in unlawfull acts are not registered therefore are outside the strong gun control measures , so what's the answer to stop these kind's of crimes from happening , in a nutshell you will never be able to stop someone who has had a mental break from doing this kind of thing , I wish there was a solution but other than giving every one a gun to protect themselves there is nothing that can be done my heart felt condolances go out to the family's of those involved.
There are no Ugly women , only those with low self esteem .
