Virginia Tech

I’m still reeling from the Virginia Tech incident.

I’m a law student in a university environment. Something like that could easily happen where I am-and I’d have no means to defend myself. Far from proving that we need gun control, this incident proves that we should make it easier for law abiding, mentally balanced people to defend themselves. Think about it: Every time something like this happens, it happens at a school or some other “gun free zone.” Nobody’s every tried to shoot out an NRA convention. Thugs love unarmed victims.

An armed citizenry would also prevent ordinary crime: When England basically banned guns, crime went up there; it went down in Florida when they liberalized their gun laws. An armed society is a polite society.

Eternal rest grant unto the victims of this tragedy, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.
