Virginia Tech killings

Today’s Downsizer Dispatch . . .

Please share with concerned friends . . .

Subject: Virginia Tech killings

Did laws prohibiting gun possession, or carrying guns onto school campuses, prevent what happened at Virginia Tech today?

Obviously not. The killer ignored any such laws.

Did gun prohibition laws perhaps prevent someone at Virginia Tech from stopping the killer before his death toll rose so high? Perhaps so.

Law abiding citizens tend to obey the gun prohibition laws. Criminals do not.

We are not calling for any action on this issue. We are not politicians, who, in moments of crisis, want to pose as saviors. Instead, we just want to encourage people to stop and think.

We also want to express our condolences to the family members and friends of the promising young people whose lives were taken in this criminal act.

Thank you for being a DC Downsizer.
