Virginia has a concealed carry law. However, it is suspended at VA Tech, thanks to liberal minds who for some reason believe that a college campus is immune from the dangers that exist in the rest of society (and that guns are by their very nature evil).
Tech also differs from elite colleges, where it is unusual to meet anyone who grew up on a farm or in a rural environment. Lots of kids in Virginia grow up in rural environments. It's not unusual for them to get their first guns at a fairly young age. By the time they go off to Tech some of them are no doubt expert marksmen.
There were hundreds of kids in that dorm this morning. At least a few were probably quite capable of using a firearm. If only they had been allowed to have one in their possession, there probably wouldnt be 32 people dead at the other side of campus.
The above is how I see what happened. Of course, some will disagree.
I’m one person who won’t be disagreeing with you. I live in a rural part of Virginia. There was a headline update on the online version of our twice weekly local rag.....none of the folks from this area who attend VT were among those injured or killed.
How do you know that some didn't?
