Campus Gun Ban Disarmed Virginia Victims

VA Tech has "blood on its hands" as gun control advocates milk tragic events

A gun ban recently enforced by Virginia Tech campus prevented over thirty victims of today's mass shooting from defending themselves against the killer, and yet gun control advocates are already politicizing this morning's tragic events to pull the lever for mass gun control. Virginia is a concealed carry state and yet Virginia Tech campus recently enforced a policy prohibiting "unauthorized possession, storage or control" of firearms on campus.

According to gun rights activists such as Aaron Zelman of Jews For The Preservation of Firearms, VA Tech has "blood on its hands" for disarming the victims and other students who could potentially have stopped the killer in his tracks in the three hour time period he was allowed to carry out his rampage by cowardly police who hid behind trees as the carnage ensued. Reuters is already disseminating the talking points for an imminent propaganda coup against the Second Amendment, and yet it was the stripping of that right to bear arms that ensured today's death toll represents the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

"Advocates of wider gun controls said the availability of guns in the United States had made it easier for people to commit murder everywhere, including in schools and colleges," reports Reuters, with no mention of the fact that had the victims been allowed to exercise their concealed carry rights, the casualty figures may have been far lower.

Students at VA Tech are already slamming the pathetic response on behalf of the police, who locked down the school and sat back as the killer was able to carefully pick off his targets.
"What happened today this was ridiculous. And I don't know what happened or what was going through this guy's mind," student Jason Piatt told CNN. "But I'm pretty outraged and I'll say on the record I'm pretty outraged that someone died in a shooting in a dorm at 7 o'clock in the morning and the first e-mail about it — no mention of locking down campus, no mention of canceling classes — they just mention that they're investigating a shooting two hours later at 9:22." He added: "That's pretty ridiculous and meanwhile, while they're sending out that e-mail, 22 more people got killed."

I am personally not an advocate of just anyone carrying a gun. Just like after the 9-11 attacks, laws were passed that now allow pilots to carry guns in cockpits. I feel a similar law should be passed to allow staff and professors at colleges to carry guns. This may not totally eliminate shooting sprees on college campuses, but at least it would likely be some kind of deterrent for madmen to begin killing sprees. Allowing students to carry guns would be ridiculous. It would be like allowing the passengers aboard planes to carry guns. We can't just let anyone do it. It has to be only allowed in the hands of a trusted professional.

The state of Virginia really messed up on this one, and as we can see, it has sadly paid the price for its gun laws. This student on Monday went into this killing rampage not only with his ammunition and weapons, but the confidence that he would be able to pull this off with no one firing back, (at least until the cops came), but as it is in most cases, these crazy murderers already have it planned to check out of this world before the cops arrive, which is exactly what happened Monday in Blacksburg, VA. I've always said the Brady Bill was a big joke. As it turns out, in Virginia, you don't even have to wait 5 days for a gun. Virginia Tech's killer went in to buy a gun, and walked out with one....no waiting. This should be a big sign for America to wake up and start allowing their trusted professional employees to carry firearms to prevent or lessen these senseless massacres in what should be our safe havens in this country.
