Thread: School shooting. AGAIN!!

    School shooting. AGAIN!!

    http://www.standard.co.uk/news/world...-a3843026.html
    10 people have been killed in a school in Texas.
    So so sad and America will NEVER change its gun laws.

    They look at me and think I'm cool, I'm purplefan at night I rule.

    Nothing on the news yet. Royal wedding is far more important than 10 innocent people losing their lives.
    Only rolling news bar. Grrrrrrrr.

    Happens so many times and nothing changes, they never learn, Purple they spent a couple of minutes on the shooting and about 15 minutes on the royal wedding on BBC 1 news at 6 pm.
    71 and counting, less of the "Old" call me "Mike"

    Too much. But I will be out and about tomorrow. Can't escape it . I was going to do some hall cleaning at church but they are having a garden party.
    I wonder if there will be the same news coverage when they get divorced. .
    Only joking.

    Thing is, I know that an American friend of mine said that actually the shootings are ten a penny and happen nearly every day... I hate it. I hate the gun laws etc...
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    What sort of a world do we live in when a mass shooting is not even news worthy? Also just heard 105 people have died in a plane crash in Cuba. Not a mention.
    It is just awful.

    The way schools have gone in America now, with security gates at every entrance, and some schools resorting to see through back packs. I'm afraid that whatever happens in the States, will happen here too. We have followed in their footsteps with some of their customs already, is it just a matter of time?

    Ok playing devils advocate here. Why should we be informed about every disaster around the world when it doesn’t affect us in any way. Yeah, it sucks that people lose their lives in tragic circumstances but if it hadn’t been reported you’d be blissfully ignorant.
