Death in Virgina

A man with a handgun killed thirty-two people and himself on the campus of Virginia Tech.

According to Reuters:
Most of those killed were students attending classes at a hall at Virginia Tech, where the gunman apparently used chains to lock doors before shooting the victims, university and police officials said.

Fifteen people were wounded, included those shot and students hurt jumping from windows in a desperate attempt to escape the gunfire, officials said.

More than thirty thousand people die from gunshot wounds in the United States each year. Still, gun control is almost non-existent.

Here's to liberty!
