The campus shooting.

On April 16, 2007, 32 college students were killed at Virginia Tech Campus in the worse school shooting in U.S history. The shooter was a Korean. The shootings began at 7:15 A.M.

At 7:15 A.M, a shooter ran into a campus dorm killed 2 people. The police arrived and thought that the shooter left, so classes weren’t canceled and the police did not inform the students about the shooting.

In between the shootings, the shooter delivered a package to NBC. In the package were photos and videos of him. The package did not arrive until April 18.

The President of the campus finally sent emails at 9:26A.M to students telling them that there was shooting in the area and they had to stay away from the windows and stay in their classrooms. The shooter then, went into a classroom and killed 30 more people. He shot himself before the police could get him.

The school massacre was very horrible. Gun control should be tighter or limited. Only people that are 30 and above should have guns. I hope in the future there won’t be any more guns.

Good reporting, Zeb. I'm sorry you had to report on such a sad event. You are a good writer, though. Keep it up! I will let Chris know you want to contact him.

Have a good day.

the problem with gun control Zeb, is that criminals never obey the laws. you will only limit the law-abiding citizens until you have another situation like Taiwan: where people are locked up in their homes like a jail with no means of protection while criminals carry. gun control only works to help the oppressors, both civilian and government.

keep up the good reporting Zeb. don't stop now!
