Guns and the Virginia Tech Tragedy

Tuesday, April 17, 2007

First, let me offer my heartfelt condolences to the friends and families of those involved in the shootings.
In all the furry of figuring out what happened at Virginia Tech, I want to offer a reminder to those who say things like, "What is needed, urgently, is stronger controls over the lethal weapons that cause such wasteful carnage and such unbearable loss."
It is people,
that kill other people.
I personally think the real tragedy at Virginia Tech is that there was not one single armed person close enough to Cho Seung-Hui, the South Korean English Major who wrought this carnage, that could have dispatched him. Once again, we see another fine example of law abiding citizens being gunned down by a madman who doesn't give a damn about laws preventing guns on school campuses. Why are there so many shootings on school campuses? Because you'd have gun laws on your side disarming your targets. What better shooting gallery could you ask for?
