I hear what you're saying man, but I'd rather be able to defend myself from violent crime, with a firearm, if necessary. Violent crime is a huge problem in the UK.

But otherwise I agree.

One thing to say, yes the UK does have a lot of violent crime, but a few people thumping each other on a weekend is surely better than the same people shooting each other? When I was growing up I thought Americans were 'hard' as we say in the UK.. but if they cant solve a dispute toe to toe, without puling a nine out - then, well, what can I say?

And OK someone else will say..."Im carrying a gun to protect myself from other people with guns".. and thats just where the problem lies..

same in UK, youths carry a knife because... other youths carry knives - so in their mind its for protection.

(Mind you I was a boxer,  so I think a bit differently about having an 'issue' with someone)

That's just great, shoot someone just because of an argument.

Why was it posted as a school shooting?   Two angry guys shooting at each other  is not a school shooting..

There have been many a stabbing in England, many black on black crime due to arguments, god forbit if we had guns here like they do in America.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

as I explained earlier, it was posted as it was happening, in real time. and they were in campus/school. And while it was happening live, no-one knew any facts or what the outcome may be

Thats the problem with breaking news

Why did you call it a school shooting?   That has grabbed attention more.. People entering thinking  oh no more kids killed?  ..That's what I had thought reading the title of your thread ..I am sure I am not alone

I never understand how theses gangs use the word "respect", when its the last thing they understand.

because thats what the news said!  Do you not understand that? Are you on some sort of self righteous quest here or what?  IT WAS NEWS! IT WAS LIVE!

It was reported...as is!

so why get a bee in your bonnet where no other has?
