    I just got up. Big doings here at Roanoke this morning. Shooting on air.

    I don’t know if this has anything to do with it, but, couple of months ago a reporter was fired at station.

    The reporter was fired for reporting child sex charges against big time layer and advertiser to the station.

    They will not give shooters name?

    Pretty sure much more to story.

    Just got name.........he is not the reporter.

    Virginia has strict gun control laws? Since when? Like what? Virginia is one of the states that Bloomberg claimed to have lax gun laws and claimed to be the source of guns transported into NYC.

    I'm not sure who considers Virginia to have strict gun laws.

    If that person had it in their heart and mind to kill someone, lack of a gun would never stop them.
    "Well, I WAS going to kill him for what he did, but I cannot get a gun so I am forced to let him continue living....
    SHEEEES people, get a handle on the concept. People kill, not guns.

    There is no way to know that for sure. The victim might have escaped if, for example, the killer tried to choke him to death. There are thoushands of other possilbilites.

    People kill.
    Guns make it far easier and fashionable.

    It's not the actual shooting that shocks me. It's the mind of a manic who calmly videos the destruction of others by any means that does. The choice of weapon is secondary to the intent to commit cold blooded murder and the need to show that destruction to the world that's sickening.

    At least he's gone.

    And a gun doesn't help protect you? What a useless thing!

    Out of ignorance (perception) or fact?

    If fact, I am not sure the shooter had (or needed) a clip with more than 20 rounds or a fully automatic weapon (machine gun) - about the only difference I can see.

    If you own one, both or a silencer it makes a world of difference. I agree he didn't need anything more than a common shotgun to kill two helpless people at ten feet.

    Reminds me of a scene from "The Devils" as the king took target practice while talking to Cardinal Richelieu.

    I counted 8 shots (until they cut back to the stunned anchor lady.)

    That is a great movie but not one for the squeamish or easily offended.
