You’ve seen the signs. It’s a picture of a gun encircled with a line slashed through it. They are everywhere. These signs are in schools, churches, hospitals, government buildings, and businesses. They’re supposed to represent a universal message stating that No Guns Are Allowed on the premises.Yet in the criminal mind it represents a place where there will be little or no resistance, in other words a Shooting Gallery.
Criminals do not care about laws, and these signs did not protect the students and faculty of Virginia Tech. That is why Cho was able to do what he did. He chained the doors shut and went on his killing spree shooting innocent people.
It was said that these victims were in the wrong place at the wrong time. That is an idiotic statement. People use it to excuse or explain the situation that occurred. They were in their classrooms at class time. They were where they were supposed to be.
There are EVIL people in the world who mean us harm. People need to be able to defend themselves from these evildoers. You have a God given right to be able to protect yourself and your family. I say you have a duty to do so. This means you should be able to arm yourself anywhere. These rights are protected under the second amendment of the constitution.
The Rosie O’Donnell’s of the world preach that we need to get rid of the guns to prevent this kind of violence. She doesn’t believe ordinary people should be able to defend themselves. Yet she walks around with armed bodyguards.
Other people are saying we need to have more police presence to protect ourselves. If there were more policemen on campus the students would have been safe. As a former police officer, I say this is a false premise. Policemen usually respond after the crime and do follow-up work to find the perpetrator. If you saw the video when the shootings were occurring there were a number of heavily armed police officers on campus. However, they did not prevent Cho from murdering those innocent people because you could hear the gunshots coming from inside the school at that time. There are no guns allowed on campus, however if the guns were allowed this carnage may have been limited, because when the shooting started they would have had a chance to protect themselves and possibly take out the shooter.
Other people are making excuses for this MURDERER. They are saying he was crazy, a loaner stalker and was probably influenced by talk radio and video games. They say Cho was a ticking time bomb that showed numerous signs of violence but nobody noticed. I say Cho was an EVIL PERSON. There are more EVIL PEOPLE in the world and we should and need to take notice of them. One such person is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the President of Iran.
