Va. woman killed near N.J. campus

A woman who attended an off-campus New Jersey house party near Seton Hall University at which five people were shot says the gunman appeared to have no targets.

The woman is a student who spoke Sunday by BlackBerry messenger on condition of anonymity because she feared for her safety while the shooter remained at large. She said she was too upset to talk by phone.

She says at least 100 people were at the party in a private house early Saturday. She says she heard a fight erupt before a man was thrown out.

She says he returned and started shooting. She says he stood on her back while she was on the floor and shot her friend Jessica Moore, who later died. Moore was from Disputanta, Va., in Prince George Co.

Four people from New Jersey and New York were injured.

So, a woman from VA (which has liberal gun laws) gets shot to death in NJ (which has some of the nation's strictest gun laws).

Hooray for strict gun laws! Oh, wait...

Considering how "smart" you are, surely you MUST have considered the possibility that the shooter obtained the gun in a state that has lax gun laws like, ummmm, Virginia?

Why are neo-cons so prone to say stupid things? Must be something in the Kool-Aid you people like to lap up.

To Ceefer66:

Who are you referring to when you say, "you people" that like to lap up Kool-Aid? I'm quite sure your kids (if you have any) as well as A LOT of other kids, whatever ethnic backgroud they may be, like kool-aid as well. Just want some clarity...

To creamyice... I think it's pretty clear he's referring to Neo Conservatives, as he states in the line above. Don't play the race card here. It doesn't work.

0126 and CreamyIce6, I don't agree with Ceefer66's opinion, but he's clearly referring to neo-cons if you read his statement. "drinking the kool-aid" is a commonly used figure of speech, as in "everyone thought the redskins were going to be good after they beat dallas, luckily I didn't drink the kool-aid". His statement about "you people" is clearly in direct reference to the "neo cons" Maybe next time you should read a little bit more closely before you start pulling the BS race card.
