Tu from Vietnam

Dear America,

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070417/ap_on_re_us/virginia_tech_shooting

That's it! I wasn't sure what exactly I should write on this blog until now, after reading the article about the "shooting in Virginia Tech". 33 death, with 27-29 wounded. How do you explain that?

Somebody have told me that Gun control is not the ultimate solution for this school/random shooting in America, but education does. Haven't American been educating their people to love, to respect nature, that war is negative, and that shooting people is bad and illegal? And yet these kind of issues still continue to happen, and they get worse and worse by time.

"Until Monday [prior to the Virginia Tech school shooting], the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history was in Killeen, Texas, in 1991, when George Hennard plowed his pickup truck into a Luby's Cafeteria and shot 23 people to death, then himself.

Previously, the deadliest campus shooting in U.S. history was a rampage that took place in 1966 at the University of Texas at Austin, where Charles Whitman climbed the clock tower and opened fire with a rifle from the 28th-floor observation deck. He killed 16 people before he was shot to death by police."

These are fact! And I say that even though gun control might not be the ultimate solution, but I believe it is our temporary solution that need to be implemented to solve this problem, to reduce the risk for innocent people, and to give American more feeling of safety.

Anybody oppose?
