5 dead.. this world pisses me off a lot lately
The law in Illinois doesn't allow people to carry handguns in that state. How could this happen??
That's a great question.
In before this turns political
Whether we are democrats, republicans, independents, or whatever, we all share a love for the Vols. So let's keep it at that, fellas. That's what we're here for. It's terrible that this happened, and my thoughts and prayers are with those affected by it. But please don't start posting political opinions.
I made it in too.
Atomic it pisses me off as well man. It seems like every other day I see a story of someone or a number of people being shot. I just don't understand how someone can wake up and say I'm going to go shoot some people today. There are some crazy people in this world and its only getting worse or it at least seems that way.

You see it now because it gets reported. Things like this used to make the local papers and that was about it. Now you have the internet and 1000's more news outlets who have to have something to report. Now that guns are a big topic, they are naturally reporting anything that happens with a gun. I can't count the stories I've seen in the last 3-4 weeks with a headline "2 people shot" and the story written up like it was as mass murder. The news media is trying to sensationalize everything. This type of thing has went on since we were living in caves. It hasn't changed in 15,000 years, I don't expect it to change now, no matter what the laws say.
You caught me.
And I completely cosign what Tonytn said. Things like this are actually pretty routine but only make news now because we have a society that sucks in media and news outlets looking for something to feed them.
