Unfortunately, this is not too surprising to hear. One of the main problems with community colleges in general (e.g., HCTC) is that they are probably are the main domestic hotbed of political & religious radical groups. Perhaps they should be shut down indefinitely.

The current tally of gun deaths in the United States since the New Town Sandy Hook shooting(39 days): 1,137. The number of U.S. service members that have died in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom(over 11 years):6,630. Why do we accept a higher rate of death from gun violence here at home than we do with two wars over an 11 year period? I thought that the place where the war was happening was the dangerous place? This is what happens when conservative dogma expects mentally ill people pick themselves up by their bootstraps. Sorry but mentally ill people will not pick themselves up by their bootstraps.

Not for nothing but lets look at what this appears to be. It doesn't appear to be a mass drowning in a swimming pool. It doesn't appear to be a mass penciling. It doesn't appear to be a mass knifing. It doesn't appear to be a mass drunk driving. It doesn't appear to be a mass crocheting incident. It doesn't appear to be a mass second hand smoking of people. No folks. It appears to be yet another mass shooting with a gun or guns.

@mouthwash-"Unfortunately, this is not too surprising to hear.

Perhaps they should be shut down indefinitely."---The answer to gun violence is to shut down educational opportunities? Please explain how that benefits a person individually or a country that wishes to be competitive in a global market. Is this really the next play in the NRA handbook?

Obama's stance on gun control has had the effect of increased guns sales, increased clip sales and increased ammunition sales. Another effect is that there are more crazies coming out of the clowet and shooting people.

Mass shooting?? No, an argument between two people who probably have the guns illegally. Quit reading into the hysteria......

If only two people are killed...how can this be reffered to as a "Mass Shooting"? If two dead people are the minimum for a "Mass Shooting" then the media has been suppressing all those "Mass Murders" that occur in every big US city.

Maybe society needs to change. People back to taking respondibility for their own actions. People raising their kids, not being "friends" with them. This not a a gun issue, it's an issue with socity and the lack of respect for others and sensationalizing by the media.

getcrazy, you seem to be very concerned about death by guns. Where were your comments on the thousands of deaths by firearm by gangbangers over the past 40 years before Newtown and/or Colorado movie theatre shootings? The numbers of dead as a result of Gangbangers shooting each other and accidentally killing an innocent in a "drive by" FAR EXCEEDS the number of people killed in the mass shootings we have seen over the past few years. Where were your comments?
