Thoughts on VTech Shooting

We're back from our trip to the NRA Convention and other things we wanted to see and do. We didn't have good access to the Internet the last couple of days. We were stunned when we turned on the car radio late Monday and heard about the shootings at Virginia Tech. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families.

There is no gun control, no law, no rule that could prevent a mass shooting. New laws could make it harder for someone to get guns or ammo, but it wouldn't prevent them. People can buy any illegal substance with a bit of patience and enough cash. A person dedicated to carrying out a shooting, such as the bastard in Virginia, would be dedicated enough to get a gun illegally. Even in "gun-free" Japan, a mayor can be nurdered with a gun.

The only people that truly such laws would affect are those like Yosemite Sam and me and we aren't the problem. I can offer no solution and no news. I am still catching up on blogs and media reports.
