Slam Dunk!!!

I have read many articles in the wake of the tragedy at VA Tech, but this one is one of the best.

When will people realize that "Gun-Free" Zones take away the ability of people the right and obligation to defend themselves? All of theses shooting that occur are in such zones. It is also true that when people have had access to their legally-owned weapons they have stopped such attempts at slaughter?

What part of "Shall Not Be Infringed" do you not understand?

How To Make Campuses Safer?

As I was reading again this morning about the horror that happened at VA Tech yesterday, there was an article by Time Magazine, entitled, "How to Make Our Campuses Safer." He drones on by saying that metal detectors and video surveillance would make it safer. I am waving my Bullshit Flag right now. Vigorously.

You want to make our students safer? I can tell you right now: Freshman year, every student takes a Self Defense shooting class. Those students that wish, after passing the class and other legislative hoops that state and federal governments have established, may arm themselves and carry concealed handguns on campus. It is that simple. Give the people that attend that school (and those that work there) the means to defend themselves. Police response times can be as much as four minutes; a lot of people were dead by then .... Last year the VA General Assembly shot down the opportunity for students to do just that, for the appearance of feeling safer (hat tip to Kim.).

That Is All. I welcome comments from the gallery...

UPDATE: For a fantastic review of this senseless tragedy, go see The LawDog.
But you shoud be reading his stuff anyway...

UPDATE2: Amen.
