Gun Control is Not a Cure
Predictably, the networks are still milking the gun control debate for all its worth. At least Sen. Harry Reid isn't buying it.
Guns effected, but did not cause the killings. They were the means by which an unbalanced, disturbed individual carried out his rage.
I also think the arguments to increase guns on college campuses are a bad idea.
We should never enact laws as an emotional response to a single tragedy, no matter how horrific. Cooler heads are needed.
Rather than playing the blame game, look to what made Cho Seung-Hui want to kill people and himself. Maybe there's a lesson in there.
If he couldn't buy a gun, he would have stolen one. Or used explosives, in which case the death toll might have been higher.
This was an isolated event that was neither predictable nor preventable.We elected a Democratic Congress to get us out of Iraq, provide universal health care and preserve Social Security. I hope they don't get diverted by a simplistic non-cure.
