Forums - General Discussion - Shooting in Oregon mall!

(CNN) -- A gunman opened fire at a mall outside Portland, Oregon, Tuesday, a sheriff's official said.

Authorities believe at least one person was killed in the shooting at the Clakamas Town Center mall, said James Rhodes of the Clakamas County Sheriff's Office.

The shooter "has been neutralized," Rhodes said, and there is no longer active shooting at the mall.

"Multiple victims" have been shot, said Public Safety Director Steve Campbell of the city of Happy Valley.

Witnesses told CNN affiliate KOIN that officials had said the situation was under control. Sheriff's officials confirmed that two people had been shot, the affiliate said.

The two-story mall is in Clackamas, Oregon, about 11 miles southeast of downtown Portland and is anchored with such stores as Sears, JC Penney and Macy's, according to its website.

There were 10 ambulances on scene after the shooting, Randy Lauer of American Medical Response said.

Inside Sears, some customers cried as word spread of the shooter going store to store, Christina Fisher told KOIN.

"We were told to stand in a group by the top of the escalators and stay away from the windows out of the aisle. ... We stood there for probably a good 20 minutes," she said. "All of the sudden somebody came through with a radio, yelling 'Get down!'"

Yes Guns point themselves at a person and pull their own triggers... *Rolls Eyes* why don't you just say Science and Technology kills people while your at it.. I am sure there are plenty of arguments that can be made for that. Anyway.. prayers for all effected by this.. so sad.. to see these things happen..

Nintendo Wii by generations...

1. Wii

2. Wii U

3. Wii O U

Predictions made by gamers concerning the current Nintendo line up of games.

Pikmen 3= Little Bump to nothing. (Got Little Bump)

Wind Waker HD= Won't sell anything (The explosion happened here and at one time 4 Wii U games was in the Amazon top 100)

Super Mario 3D World= Won't help at all looks cheap. (Currently the most sought after Wii U game and continuing the Wii U increase.)

Sad... just sad.

Second amendment kills people.

The U.S gun laws are a joke.... You're all to caught up in your amendments and thinking that laws and times never evolve. The gun amendment was fine back when it was written, the world is a much different place now. Something people need to realize.

And yet wihout the Second Amendment.. Japan probably would have invaded us in WW2.. or Nazi's. because they were afraid of finding people carrying guns.. they did not even try it.. also without guns.. it would be almost impossible to protect yourself or your property in this day and age.. (Remember Criminals do not follow laws.. if they did.. they would not be criminals) And tests to make sure people are mentally able to carry guns won't work either.. remember even the most mentally competent person has their dark days.. and all it takes is one of those.. and you got another shooting..
