Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Remember kids in the U.S. - you can play with a loaded firearm but a Kinder Chocolate egg is so dangerous it's been banned in the whole of the U.S.

Not a single U.S. state is brave enough to allow them in.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Yet another for the collection. Gunmen kill 5 in Pennsylvania and injure others.

http://www.bbc.com/news/35770879

Sounds more like a planned attack than random/rage shooting this time.

Yep. Sad business. Not far from where I lived and went to grade school between ages 4 and 8.

Possibly off topic.. NRA rewrites classic fairy stories so that they include guns...
