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.
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.
