    My cousin goes to NIU..

    His dorm room is in the building next to the one in which the shooting occurred, as far as I can tell from the campus maps. I'm not really worried because I don't think he would be in a geology class, where the shooting took place, but it's still a little scary. I don't have any way to contact him other than facebook. I hope he's alright.

    Just heard about this on the news. I live in Milwaukee, so it's sort of close but not really. This is terrible to hear about. Said the kid had no criminal record or anything. My sympathies go to the families and friends of the victims.

    I don't have their phone number. They are all on my mother's side of the family and I don't speak to my mother.

    My condolences also go out to the families and everybody at niu. I know many people who attend NIU and I spend many weekends up there. Some of my best buddies go there and i'm very thankful that they are okay.

    There has to be some underlying reason why these people pick classrooms (besides a group of unarmed people) to shoot up. Maybe it's because they were doing poorly in school, or they wanted to revolt against the whole cliche of college.
    My brother and I were brutal. I once chased him around the house with a spoon that I put on the burner. I burned that little pricks leg. -sharkall2003

    This one in particular probably had something to do with some lost romantic interest.

    My cousin also goes to NIU. Well, actually she took this semester off. I was talking to my aunt last night and she said that this is probably the only time when she is happy that her daughter took time off.
    To clear up some confusion:
    Blanche = slut on the Golden Girls
    Soprano = The Sopranos
    And no, my life does not revolve around the tv.

    Ya i heard something about a kid ditching that class and his parents were actually happy that he ditched for once.

    Also I'm 45 minutes from NIU and one of the people killed was from the town next to mine.

    man this whole thing is terrible

    makes me question whether or not it is worth it to carry on campus when it is against the law

    There is a bill going through congress shortly that is in favor of concealed carry on campus. It probably won't get passed though.
