I feel that I have to weigh in on this sad, tragic event. As the Gun Control nuts begin to circle they will ignore the simple fact that if just one student or teacher would have been armed, many lives would have been saved.
Yes, the guy was a nut. Yes, he obtained his gun through legal means. Yes, he did line people up on a wall and began shooting them. Could he have done that if someone in the room could throw bullets back at him? No way. He would have been forced to retreat.
Virgina law prohibits carrying a concealed weapon on collage campuses. Concealed carry holders are some of the most law abiding people around, so this virtually guaranteed that no one on the campus would be armed when this nut went on his shooting spree. It is easy to get people to do what you want them to do when they have no means of defending themselves. Just as the Jews in Hitler's Germany, oh wait, Hitler took their guns then gassed 6 million of them. Sorry, forgot about that for a moment.
