I moved back to the Blacksburg area in August after being away for about eight years. It seems that all I hear about now is hand-guns tonight, stabbing last night, men trying to kidnap young ladies on campus. This doesn't seem like the 'burg that I remember. What happened while I was gone?

This isn't really new for Blacksburg unfortunatly. Within the last two years there have been numerous shooting and stabbings other than 4/16. Oge Chi's (formerly Burrus Square Tavern) has had at least one stabbing and shooting in the past two years alone.
