The Governor is so nasty he'd refuse to allow the death penalty be exercised against this type of mad-dog killer.
The latest bill intended to redress the situation at Virginia Tech was knocked down in a subcommittee by someone currying Governor Kaine's favor ~ no doubt ~ always a budgetary need in someone's district eh.
All such nasty people should be removed from office by the electorate before they get more of us killed.
Would seem you are in error ~ VA Tech has been vigorous enough to target a specific student and scare all the others. If they hadn’t, someone would have been able to stop this maddog killer earlier before 31 people were dead.
“It is better to be tried by 12 than carried by 8.”
If one of those college kids had a gun, only 5-8 people would have been killed instead of 33.
Have you ever wondered why you never hear a story about a uniformed cop getting mugged? It's not because he is wearing a uniform. The mugger knows damn well the officer is armed.
In my days at VT (mid 60's), we had 7000+ cadets, and about 1000 "civilian" students, and every cadet was issued an M-1 rifle, and those on the rifle team had their own weapons. That doesn't include those who had personal weapons in their cars or dorms. None of us had ammunition (at least openly), but this campus probably had a higher percentage of guns per student than virtually any community in the nation. The campus was virulently pro-military. The media never reported on it, but what other campus had a march supporting the military in Viet Nam? 80%+ of the students in those days were in ROTC and went into the military upon graduation. There are still a few hundred cadets (you saw some of them in the videos).
From those days, VT has been converted into just another liberal state university, with a large percentage of foreign students. What a shame!
And all the ususal suspects are howling for more gun control when the problem was a lack of guns in the right hands.
There have to be a lot of PO’d parents today.
I understand CHO was on scholarship. His sister is attending Princeton. How could these immigrants get such educations on their father’s pants pressing salary?
It sickens me to see the constant stream of sob-sisters interviewed on the media. When I went to Tech before you, the “girls” were housed in there own dorm; were aggies or engineering students and would have made short work of CHO themselves.
