Horror at Virginia Tech

My heart goes out to the students, faculty, staff, and families of Virginia Tech. The news from there is making me feel sick. 8 years after the Columbine shootings.

And our President, before all the facts of the situation are even known, uses it as an opportunity to reaffirm support for the NRA!?? ""The president believes that there is a right for people to bear arms, but that all laws must be followed," spokeswoman Dana Perino said."

I'm horrified.

In response to a question, yes, I did turn off comments for this post (first time for me). I just wasn't in the mood for a debate on this topic. This tragedy hit too close to home for me, since I spent 20 years of my life living, studying, teaching, and doing research on college campuses.
