12 Killed in attack at Virginia Beach Government offices

Wow, another day in America, but it's not terror related though Seems to be a former employee
A Virginia Beach city worker walked into a municipal building on Friday afternoon and opened fire on co-workers, killing at least 11 people and injuring six others, the authorities said.

Chief James Cervera said the gunman, who was a current, longtime city employee, was dead after officers opened fire. Officials said the gunman fired on his victims immediately.

“This is the most devastating day in the history of Virginia Beach,” Mayor Robert M. Dyer said at an evening news conference.

The identities of the gunman and the victims were not released.

One of those injured was a police officer, who was saved by his bulletproof vest, Chief Cervera said.

The Americans are at it again.
What will stop this? Probably nothing as guns and violence are so ingrained into their society.
I'm sure there are some forums that have topics devoted to nothing but mass murders in the US.
I saw the headlines too but never bothered to read any further. What's the point, we've seen it all before too many times.
What a sad country the US has become.

That’s what happens when they value carrying guns over life. RIP to the victims and I wish something could be done to stop this but unfortunately it won’t...

What a thing to have to keep track of? Only in the USA?
The Government cannot give to anybody anything that the Government does not first take from somebody else.

Let them keep their guns.
But mandatory free mental health support from the state regardless of your status in society.

Afaik... theres no public health care in USA.
In Canada you can get free mental health treatment. Yah theres a wait list. But if its dire its pretty ez to get.

Look at all these sanctimonious canadians sneering at Americans for gun violence. If everybody in that office would had been packing a gun that guy would had killed only 1 or 2 before getting capped himself.

This massacre is a fine example why every citizen should had the ability to carry a firearm.

One shot is a mass shooting ? I think this site is verified biased . Especially with no links to the shootings .

I bet the office was a gun free zone . Like all gun free zones they are the places where these nuts ply their trade . They know there will be no resistance .
