Once again, Americans are faced with the counter-productive consequences of gun control. At least 33 students were killed today in a rampage on the Virginia Tech campus. The shootings were reportedly committed with two 9mm handguns. The killer chained shut the dormitory doors, and went door-to-door slaughtering students. The usual police procedure in such situations is to wait outside until for a SWAT team to arrive and access the situation before taking action, which usually gives the perpetrator plenty of time to run out of ammo.
Students, teachers, and security guards who want to protect themselves on campus face severe criminal penalties for violating federal and state “gun free” zones.
How many victims have to die before people realize that “gun free zones” are not such a good idea?
