Default And another deadly shooting.

Not too far from my place. I was going to go x-mas shopping there today but my jeep ended up in the shop last night.

Update: 3 dead in mall shooting near Portland, Ore.

Unfortunatly, I do think it will get worse for the next couple of weeks because of the Mayan calender. People that believe that will think that oh well and start doing a lot of crazy things. I feel bad for all police/fire/ and paramedics that have to work on the 20th. I bet there will be shootings, alcohol problems, drug problems, ect.

Didnt even think about that, but yeah will probably get worse than because of that. Absolutely terrible

Lots of nuts out there. People seem to think that living in Canada we're immune to this type of stuff, but unfortunately it happens here too. Earlier this year seven people died at the Eaton Centre in Toronto, and a couple of years ago someone was shot and killed at a mall five minutes from my house.

Weird as this may sound, I am isolating myself from the rest of the world from the 14-21st. I don't want to have to deal with any of that #@#@#@#@#@#@#@#@. I'll go to work, come home, and repeat for the next couple of days.

I'm scared as to what may happen.

I never really ever considered carrying a gun on me, but after so many of these type of events and having kids, I think I'll reconsider to get a permit.

There have always existed unstable individuals and crazies; the interconnection of society simply makes it appear more prevelant today.

Rates in the US are actually on the decline. It seems like the rate goes up because of the microscope the media has on these situations. All of them are reported at a larger radius than they once were. 15 years ago I wouldn't have heard about this in Florida.

I guess technology does play a role in how much more we see. 15 years ago everything was probably local stuff only and on occasion a national thing.

I also wanted to say that someone on another forum noticed a few similarities between this and the aurora shooting. (Not Me)

Something super weird is going on with the Oregon shooting...., page 1

I'm just blown away that he stole the gun, supposedly all gun related crimes would stop if we tightened up gun laws
