The police might arrive in time to call for the clean-up crew.
A quicker response is required to ensure the corpse isn't you!
"We have created a shopping list for madmen! If guns are the problem, why don't we see things occurring at skeet and trap shoots, at rifle and pistol ranges, at gun shows, at NRA conventions? We only see it where guns aren't allowed. The sign of a gun with a slash through it is like a neon sign for gunmen, 'We're unarmed. Come kill us.' "
That rifle hanging on the wall of the working-class flat or labourer's cottage is the symbol of democracy.
It is our job to see that it stays there.
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.

Jan. 31, 2006 - A bill that would have given college students and employees the right to carry handguns on campus died with nary a shot being fired in the Virginia General Assembly.
Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hincker was happy to hear the bill was defeated. "I'm sure the university community is appreciative of the General Assembly's actions because this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus."
Last spring a Virginia Tech student was disciplined for bringing a handgun to class, despite having a concealed handgun permit. Some gun owners questioned the university's authority, while the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police came out against the presence of guns on campus.

It's sad how quickly a terrible tragedy such as this is exploited by the anti-gun politicians. They sight mass killings as the reason for the need of a new gun ban! They don't mention that guns were already banned on the Virginia Tech campus and that shooting people is already 'banned' by Federal law. It seems that criminals don't pay attention to the laws... imagine that!
So, if criminals do not acknowledge or obey the law, what could possibly come of a new gun ban?... Why, the disarming of your average law-abiding citizen, of course! The conversion from armed citizen to helpless victim - totally dependent on the government for protection of life, liberty and property.
Yeah, I'm going to depend on the local cops to be my family's personal bodyguards. Maybe they'll arrive 15 minutes later to fill out the paperwork and call the coroner, while some thug is miles away with my TV.
I don't think so... we don't need more government control!
It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees!
