|See what happens in "gun-free" zones?
Virginia Tech Students
Doomed by Gun Ban
The Cost of Hysteria Mounts
I just found out about the massacre at Virginia Tech.
The thing that makes me most angry is that the dead students were penned up like sheep for the slaughter, in a ridiculous "gun-free zone." A better phrase would be "self-defense-free zone," or maybe "danger-free zone for armed criminals."
Anyone who knew about Virginia Tech's deadly, stupid policy knew he could pick up a gun, walk into any dorm, and shoot freely until the police showed up. The amazing thing isn't that it happened; the amazing thing is that it doesn't happen once a month.
Here is what spokesman Larry Hinckman said in 2005, about Virginia Tech's ill-fated policy: "I think it's fair to say that we believe guns don't belong in the classroom. In an academic environment, we believe you should be free from fear."
I think we can see how well that policy worked out.
READ THE REST OF THE COLUMN here:
Amendment II of the United States Constitution:
"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
Hint: you canNOT "un-invent" technology. Besides, having a rule against weapons is totally COUNTER-productive to any rule against criminals -- because it only encourages them.
[Note: ALL of the infamous cases
of school and workplace shootings and knifings took place in known
"Gun-Free Zones."] -- Be sure to read what total moron "Virginia Tech spokesman"
