Virginia Tech School Shootings

Posted on April 18th, 2007 by InternationalStudentGuru

We are all extremely saddened and shocked by the events that unfolded on Monday at Virginia Tech University. Certainly an event that we never want to see happen again, and news is emerging that some of those dead are international students. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone at Virginia Tech, and those families who have lost loved ones.

    “Does Virginia Tech massacre make you want stricter gun control laws?”

    I came across this “real time” poll website called BuzzDash.com and they currently have the subject, and are asking: “Does Virginia Tech massacre make you want stricter gun control laws?”

    As of 7:03.48 PM-PDT today. This BuzzDash.com is a “up to the second sampling of close to 350 online users polled said – No!”

    347 votes since 4/17
    Yes, current laws are too lax– 44%
    No, protection is our right – 55%

    This site BuzzDash says it’s “a community-driven website that provides a real-time dashboard showing continuously updated snapshots of popular opinion and people can gauge the pulse of the nation on the Virginia Tech tragedy and whether it should affect current gun control laws.”

    I say, whether “yes” or “no” America, PLEASE make your opinion known!
