    C-Mags are fantastically heavy and unreliable, meaning they aren't something you want bring when you're trying to kill as many people as possible. Also this is an impulsive crime, he didn't plan it. M16s and C-Mags are not things you bring into a university that outlaws weapons on campus grounds for fun because obviously, it's hard to conceal.

    Most fatalities in shooting sprees are hit at point blank range or by pure luck. This is a statistical fact. Most expend hundreds of bullets for every fatality, save for those shot at point blank range.

    33 people died and all you guys have to do is joke around, talking about how many rounds in the magazine, and where to find a comic book character?

    humor is often used to hide fear.

    This is completely irrelevant.

    The gun control debate has gone on for years in just about every forum in existence. In the end it comes down to the average American feeling that banning guns would just reduce the situation to 'the bad guys will have guns and the good guys won't'.

    Realise this, the average police response time in to an average American household is more than 10minutes. What happens someone breaks into your home with a gun, and guns are outlawed so you have nothing? America is not Singapore.

    I was watching this movie titled Coach Carter last night on TV. The school kids have to pass through a metal detector at the school entrance everyday!! And it is only a high school. Imagine studying in that kind of envoirnment.

    In a country with a gun culture and lax control where it's easy for anyone to get a gun, legally or illegally, it's not surprising that this kinda thing happened and will continue to happen.

    In most cases, the number of victims in a shooting or massacre are attributed by the type of weapons used.
    Nothing comical about it, just hard facts.......

    It made me wonder....

    Since guns are legalised (in certain states IIRC, makes me wonder if the state allowed guns) in US, why none of the students and teachers pulled out a gun in retaliation to return fire in self-defense?

    Guns are illegal in schools and in universities. In the case of Virginia Tech, even the on-campus police don't carry weapons, I think.

    What I mean is, whoever is joking isn't joking because he or she is scared.

    For goodness sake, 33 people are dead. Can we stop the pissing contest over the guns/bullets and what not...
