Here's a little gem I heard on the radio this morning: Hey, if they'd had guns, this never would've happened....oh, right. I don't want to make light of the tragedy, and I'm actually in favor of the right to own guns, but there's a testosterone-challenged group of gun-rights here in Northern Virginia who are thumping their chests about their right to pack heat in the local Applebys. The usual nonsense about self-defense and so forth. Well, here's a story about hunters, who I assume were armed, but who I also assume were NOT trigger-happy vigilantes in training, and therefore were not ready to 'return fire' when the psycho showed up. I don't know, it just reminded me that back in Charleston SC AND in Lincoln, NE there were robbery/murders at the respective gun shops in our neighborhoods. It just makes a lot of the NRA rhetoric ring pretty hollow.
