3. Business as usual in 'murica.



It's going to take close family members of the GQP being severely injured or killed before something is done. Of course there are so damned many gunz in the wrong hands right now that it'll take decades for any legislation to have an effect.

12. Not really

It's really beyond the outer suburbs, and generally an affluent white area

21. Google maps says it's 43 miles from downtown Detroit.

30+ miles from the border of Detroit. About the same as the distance from Detroit to Ann Arbor. Not as far as Toledo, Ohio.

Basically, no. No, it is not part of Detroit, nor even very close to Detroit. Not really even a suburb of Detroit. It's about six towns north.

Is it still the case?

17. So far as I know. I grew up there.


Haven't lived there in years and have no close ties anymore.

The area was so WASP when I lived there that I used to joke that I, a Catholic, was the token minority.

16. {Googling} Oh, that's where Oakland University is located.

I had Paul Tipler's physics textbook for my intro course.

This was so long ago that there was no speed limit on light. Gas was so cheap that no one cared how fast you went.

4. When is enough ever going to be enough?

Sending my hopes that all injured can make a full recovery. But who the hell am I kidding? Even if someone recovers physically from something like this, how would they ever recover emotionally?

This country is sick.

14. Three students dead now

Six others shot, including a teacher. Suspect is in custody. Oxford is a township north of the northern suburbs of Detroit. One of our friends has 2 daughters at the school, they are both safe, but one of their friends was shot and his condition is not known. Updates will be provided to the public at 5pm EST. Absolutely traumatic for these folks.

18. So glad your friend's daughters are okay. Fingers crossed for their friend.


Oxford was white and affluent when I last lived there. Nowhere is safe.

15. 3 DEAD !!! STUDENTS !! HIGH SCHOOLERS !!!

"""""
The suspect was apprehended without incident within five minutes of police arrival, Undersheriff Michael G. McCabe said.
A handgun was recovered from the suspect, McCabe said. Authorities recovered multiple shell casings in the school and believe around 15-to-20 shots were fired.
"At this point in time, we believe he acted alone," McCabe said.
The 15-year-old did not resist arrest, has invoked his right not to speak and is not telling law enforcement officers anything right now, McCabe said.'""""


I HOPE THE PEOPLE WHO ALLOWED THE KILLER TO GET HIS HANDS ON THE GUN AND AMMO GO TO PRISON FOR A DECADE FOR EACH COUNT OF MURDER!!

28. ..Check for weapons when entering schools. Yes, cost a lot of money, but worth it.

A few years ago, I visited a Chicago Public High School for a judging project..( I was going to judge a History Fair)
As all students entered...Yes, ALL STUDENTS WERE CHECKED FOR WEAPONS BY THE POLICE, & WENT THROUGH METAL DETECTORS..

VERY EXPENSIVE FOR OVER 60 HIGH SCHOOLS...but you know the rest of the story about shootings in the
Chicago Public Schools....There ARE NO MORE STORIES!!
