At least 22 people shot and killed in a rampage at Virginia Tech. The shooter, apparently despondent over a romantic issue, checked himself out after doing all this damage.
Worse yet, it is initiating a debate about gun control, because of a recent debate at VT to make the college a “gun-free zone” and in the Virginia legislature about passing a law allowing students and faculty to carry weapons. I don’t see that it would have made any difference one way or the other. Crazed lunatics are going to find a way to get weapons no matter what the law is, and whether their victims are armed or not doesn’t matter if they can take hostages or take out the threats before they can return fire.
