V-Tech Massacre

Filed under: Uncategorized — dcdesi @ 2:32 am

More than 30 people were killed at the V Tech campus today (Monday April 16th). For anyone who has been to schools in the US it is scary to hear that something like this can happen. It brings to light the same issue that keeps being raised about the gun laws. In a country, where there have been so many school shootings and now this college shooting, one would hope and wish that at least the access to weapons will become a little more difficult.

It also raises the question as to what is happening in this society, what are kids watching on tv, and what sort of video games are they playing, and what sort of social interactions are they having that makes them take life so lightly. What kind of influence are these having on their mental stability that they make a minuscule but deadly percentage brandish guns around like toys and kill people as if playing a Dooms game.

Just the idea of something like this happening on a college campus is terrifying, and it raises a worrisome question that what guarantee is there that something like this will not happen again?:(

Our prayers go out to all the students, their families, friends and loved ones.
