Another shooting at a university has occurred today, this time at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb. Yeah, this is just what we needed, another mass shooting. I guess Virginia Tech taught us nothing about what to do when the need arises to meet force with force. Once again, if there'd been one student who could have returned fire the shooting might have been able to stop sooner. Maybe there'd only be one dead, not six. My prayers go out for the families of all involved, even the shooter's family. I do want to know what brought this on, though. Will it be another case where a student decided to believe that no one understood him, was it a crush that went terribly wrong, or something even worse than those two?
