The Columbine High School Shooting Anniversary

Posted on the 21 April 2011 by Mikeb302000
Yesterday, April 20, 2011, there was a pipe bomb found not far from Columbine High School, scene of this shooting.  It is currently presumed to be a current case of domestic terrorism. I found it interesting that a pipe bomb was part of the Columbine massacre as well.
I think it is fair to characterize the two shooters in the Columbine shooting as gun nuts.  Which is NOT to say that all gun nuts are like this; they are not.  In case any of you are wondering, the Virginia Tech massacre took place within a few days of the anniversary of Columbine, on April 16th, 2007.
April 20, 1999.
