    7 dead, 3 injured, gunman caught in college shooting

    It's a good things guns aren't allowed on campus, somebody may have got killed.. I'm glad the SWAT team and police were able to protect the students.. Great job..

    Also, I feel much safer that conceal carry is illegal in California.. I wouldn't want to be in a place where there is crazy people carrying guns who may decide to just shoot me.

    Yep that *limit magazines to 10 rounds* law sure saved a lot of lives today, Im sure.

    I wouldn't mind visiting that state, but I would never want to live in "THe Peoples Republik of Kalifornia"

    I just love how some people think that criminals are going to follow laws. Im sure that someone who is thinking of killing people cares about concealed weapon policies / gun control laws. When will people wake up and realize that the continued restrictions on law abiding citizens is not the answer. They should make it easier for people to bear arms. The more armed citizens the better IMO. Criminals need to think twice about the general public. The criminals need to know that anyone may be carrying and able to defend themselves or others. This $hit makes me so angry. I can tell you this much....I would rather be injured or killed by a person trying to defend me than killed by a criminal.

    RIP college students. This is a sad day indeed.

    Give it some time and our fuhrer Obama will try to use this to his benefit like he did with that Trayvon shooting thing.

    As a student at Portland State, the whole "no guns on campus" rule really bothers me when things like this happen. Don't get me wrong, if I was in that situation I'm not going to look for the gunman in an active shooter situation, but knowing that maybe some of those students may have been able to protect themselves at least if they were armed bugs me. The rule isn't going to stop a criminal from packing, it only stops law abiding citizens.

    There is no such place as a "People's Republic" of anything in the United States. Such references do not reflect on the state, they simply tell me you have never seen a People's Republic.

    We have a President.

    This is not political. It has nothing to do with guns, gun rights or other politics. Innocent victims, American citizens are dead. No one will ever know if weapons on campus in the hands of citizens would have stopped him, or even slowed him down. Gun rights do not magically negate either evil or madness.

    This is the act of a madman. Any attempt to politicize it is disgusting in my eyes, and lowers the speaker to a level below politicians.

    REALLY? ..has nothing to do with guns, gun rights? REALLY!
    Innocent victims yes, and too bad they weren't armed so they could have any hope of survival.

    All politicians are going to politicize it for their own agenda.

    If you do the same, the only difference between you is that they are successful politicians, who have succeeded in getting elected, whose words and actions affect millions, while you, on the other hand, are making a meaningless post to a gun board. You're both doing the same thing.

    But they're successful at it.

    It didn't stop me under the old policy. I carried the whole time I went to PSU and onto Oregon. Get a permit, and then if you can't carried concealed totally undetected with all of the various bags and sloppy attire that students have, you aren't doing it right.

    I'm still waiting for the outrage over the races of the shooter and victims. Or is that only in cases that can be manipulated to serve an agenda?
