The horror at Virginia Tech raises profound questions over how much the Government should restrict access to guns.
Should the Government increase restrictions on gun ownership by the mentally ill?
Or should more Americans be allowed to carry guns on campus in order to stop a crazy mass murderer such as Cho Seung-Hui before he does more damage?
My guests are Phillip Van Cleave, President of the Virginia Citizens’ Defense League;
and Brian Siebel, Senior Attorney of the Legal Action Project at the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence

    It is almosr dependable when a mad shooter goes on a spree and many gun worshipers panic and in trembling fear come out in fierce unprevoked defense of their weapon ownership.
    After V. Tech shooting, no one came out calling for weapons to be collected.
    They saw mass shootings and it registered in their brain mass manditory gun collections.
    What does that tell you about yourselves ? More concern over your gun ownerships than a momment of silence for the dead.
    The only gun control speak was that of controllung ownership of a court acknowledge loon on mental stability drugs. But be concerned and worry over your allowed permissioned gun ownership. Not your RIGHT !
    And by the way, Some laws are premptive……..

    When the impotence of deterence against desperate violence is exposed–its disturbing–the damage is a given part of our society–that strains to just keep the damage to a minimum–laws are redundant, after the fact, and ineffectual to madness and iniquity in its many forms
    The answers are difficult because they are spiritual and come in God’s time

    If you look into the statistics you would see that most developed nations have total murder rates lower than just the non-gun homocide rates of the USA. Our country is more violent per capita than any other industrialized country even without our approximately 3/100,000 gun murders per year. We need to blame the people doing th shooting and the society that raised them, not blame the tool they used to do it. No one ever tries to sue Ford because someone drove drunk and killed someone or intentionally ran people over while sober. It is the fault of the person doing it, not the tool they used.

    Any attack on any liberty under our constitution is unAmerican! There is a bill on the table right now that would ban all guns in America, all guns except those of the police state of course.
