I'm mad as he** about this shooting, but I blame the gunman, not the gun. I guess you have to have been there, but how is it that nobody lunged for this maniac, but instead just let him roam and kill at will? Are there no self-sacrificing heros any more among our youth? Maybe there are, but they're already serving in the military.

What I don't understand is why the Liberals are so upset at this guy. He didn't do any more than the typical suicide bomber in Israel or Iraq. We don't hear them talking about taking guns and bombs away from those idiots, or blaming the perpetrators for their actions. Instead we should leave them be so they don't get mad at us and kill even more innocents. Fundamentally, what is different about this scenario - a madman indiscrimanently kills innocent bystanders? Hmmmmm?

Sorry, but I'm really pi**ed that something like this happened, and then to see the reaction be that society is to blame for ignoring this piece of human debris. I heard a clip of one Congresswoman say this is why she wanted to pass a bill limiting the size of clips for handguns, as if someone like this nutbag wouldn't just bring a few extra clips along.

Oh wait, I just read that it's all Charleton Heston's fault - I kid you not.

We're in deep doodoo.

There was a hero - an engineering professor named Liviu Librescu, who was shot while barring the door to his classroom while telling students to escape out the window.

Isn't it strange that his name hasn't made it in the Mainstream Media? What's going on here?

Here's another example of heroism in the face of sheer terror:

I'm sure there are LOTS of others that may not have made it into the media, but as a VT alum, I commend the the students and faculty for handling this tragedy about as well as anyone could have... it's just a shame they had to.

Dig this, dudes. Similar incident 5 years ago at a VA college, before all guns were banned from the campuses.

That time two students, one an off-duty police officer, pulled their own guns on the guy and subdued him. Imagine if someone at VTech had a concealed carry weapon on him/her. Maybe many fewer than 32 people would have died that day.
