Like my Father told me, when I told him I "packed" a gun with me in my truck:
"It's better to have a gun and not need it, than to need a gun and not have it..."
31 students needed a gun today, and didn't have one, because they obeyed the law...
When a law restricts my ability to protect myself and my family, as far as I'm concerned, that "law" doesn't exist!
A bill that would have given college students and employees the right to carry handguns on campus died with nary a shot being fired in the General Assembly.
Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hincker was happy to hear the bill was defeated. "I'm sure the university community is appreciative of the General Assembly's actions because this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus."
Amen, dirtbiker. One of the world's greatest test pilots described you, me, and millions of Americans in 18 words:
"I've always said that the rules are made for people who aren't willing to make up their own."
