Virginia Tech shooting
This is one post I really don't want to write. I hate to consider the political implications of any tragedy before the facts are known, but the MSM/DNC leave us little choice. It is unknown how many people have died today or what motivated this horrific crime, but ABC news is already discussing the implications for one of their favorite pet projects - gun control. ABC also has a poll on their website asking about gun control. I don't feel like linking to it. You will just have to take my word for it.
We will hear more about gun control as the presidential campaign heats up. Virginia Tech will become as much of a rallying cry as "Columbine." In fact, Virginia Tech will push "Columbine" right out of the national discussion, except as an historical footnote. The propaganda campaign is already getting started. MSM/DNC will not let Friday's (April 20) 8th anniversary of Columbine pass without using that occassion to draw dubious parallels. Michael Moore is planning a movie about Virginia Tech. Rosie O'Donnell is planning even more insane rants than those she has spewed about 9-11. Jesse Jackson wants to know if minority students were targeted disproportionately by the shooter.
We cannot surrender the field to those who would use this tragedy to restrict more of our freedoms.
Please remember that if the victims had guns in their possession at the time of the shooting, the casualty total would have been much smaller. If stricter gun control is enacted, shooters will have an even freer hand in killing the innocent.
When you are confronted with inanities pouring from your TV tonight, remember this phrase, "More Guns, Less Crime."
