VIRGINIA TECH: NOBODY ELSE HAD A GUN



Don't be fooled by the "gun control" morons, like Rosie O'Donnell. Time and time again, innocent people die because they are not armed, have no means of self defense.

The police have guns. The criminals have guns. Unconstitutional and unlawful "gun laws" deprive the LAW ABIDING PERSON of his right to SELF DEFENSE.


THE PATRIOT'S PRAYER

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change

The courage to change the things I can

And the WEAPONRY to make the difference!

Amen.

Never surrender your firearms!

From John Perna

NOBODY ELSE HAD A GUN. IF THE VICTIMS HAD BEEN ARMED THE SHOOTER WOULD HAVE DIED AFTER THE FIRST SHOT

A gun ban recently enforced by Virginia Tech campus prevented over thirty victims of mass shooting from defending themselves against the killer, and yet gun control advocates are already politicizing this tragic event to pull the lever for mass gun control.

The shooter grew up in China, and was here on a student visa. Should we ban guns? No, we should close our borders. With all of these gun laws a foreigner still had a gun.

Virginia School Shooting: Another Government Black-Op?

"Eyewitness accounts describe police hiding behind trees and failing to pursue the killer, while ordering the school to be placed on lockdown so nobody could escape the carnage as the killer picked off his targets with seemingly little interruption from the police."

Blaming guns for school shootings is like blaming spoons for Rosie O'Donnell being fat.

A short quiz:

Schools, churches, subways, and restaurants have often been assaulted, but
rarely military bases, police stations, or shooting clubs. The reason for this is because:

A. The targets aren't sitting or kneeling.
B. VA benefits are lost if you shoot a soldier.
C. You can't enter an army base without bumper stickers.
D. Schools don't threaten felons with detention hall.
E. People are armed at military bases, police stations, or shooting clubs.


THE NEW SCHOOL PRAYER
This was written by a teen in Bagdad, Arizona.

Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the state.
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses,tongues and cheeks.
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
It's "inappropriate" to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such "judgments" do not belong.
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot;
My soul please take!

Amen

"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence. To ensure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference, they deserve a place of honor with all that is good."
-- George Washington

=========================================

Another school shooting has stunned the nation. The carnage at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, with over thirty people dead and almost as many wounded, is reportedly the deadliest episode of its kind in American history. Second Amendment Sisters sends our prayers and wishes to all the students, faculty, staff, their friends and families who have been impacted by this horrific tragedy.

As a country, we are shocked; we are saddened and sickened; soon, we will be angry. These are the reactions that have followed each similar event. How could this happen? Who could do this? Why weren’t our children protected? What we will most likely do, once again, is fail to learn from this latest tragedy.

We cannot protect our children once they are out of our sight. Once we send them out into the world, whether it is to the bus stop on their way to elementary school or hundreds of miles away to a university or into the workplace, we can only hope that we have given them the means to protect themselves.

Laws do not protect us. Laws are simply the rules we decide the group must follow. We know beforehand that only a portion of us will, indeed, follow those rules, so we have police. The police do not protect us; they are simply the law-enforcers. They cannot be expected to provide protection before a crime is committed. The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that that is an unreasonable expectation.

We must be able to protect ourselves, and we must teach our children to do the same. We are each our own first means of defense. We each have a right to life, and a right to protect that life, and we must have the means to do so.

Guns are not permitted on the campus of Virginia Tech. Each year over 200 guns are turned in to the security department when law-abiding students, faculty and staff arrive at the school. This is done voluntarily. The man who chose to break the law against murder when he slaughtered innocent students and professors also chose to break the law against carrying a weapon onto school property.

In early 2006 the General Assembly defeated a bill that would have allowed students and employees of colleges and universities who had concealed carry permits from the Commonwealth of Virginia to take their guns onto school property. House Bill 1572 had been prompted by a student who held such a permit.

At the time VT spokesman Larry Hincker said, “I’m sure the university community is appreciative of the General Assembly’s actions because this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus.”

Much effort goes into making us feel safe. That feeling does not mean that we are safe. We need to change our focus towards reality. There is nothing to fear from decent honest people having a means to protect themselves. There is a lot to fear from the disarming of innocents. This horrendous event is just another example of what happens when we let perpetrators of violence know that they have nothing to fear and great opportunity to inflict pain on the entire nation.

From Carl F. Worden:

So far, 22 people are dead and another 21 wounded in the attack launched by one gunman reportedly armed with two 9mm pistols and extra magazines at the campus of Virginia Tech on 4/16/07.

Virginia
is one of the many states with “Shall Issue” concealed gun laws, which means that if a citizen who has not been convicted of a felony or domestic violence, and they are not judged mentally unstable, the law requires they be issued a concealed gun permit upon request.


But nobody in range of the gunman, other than late-arriving police, had a gun. To make it even more senseless and inexcusable, this is the second recent firearms attack at Virginia Tech.

The gunman in the second incident is dead, and I suspect he got tired of waiting for the cops so he did it himself.


I don’t know the policy at Virginia Tech, but I’ll bet there is a no-gun policy on campus, which means everybody there were just sitting ducks, fleeing for their lives or hiding. It is reported some students jumped from second story windows and ran to safety.


To be certain, there will be yet another call for gun control over this incident, which translates as follows: The citizens who are afraid of guns and don’t want to have them, will try to impose their will on everybody else, making us all sitting ducks for the next gunman to slaughter.


In their mindless quest for non-violence, these well-meaning folks actually envision a nation with such stringent gun bans that nobody will have a gun. But that is never going to happen in the United States, because there are too many guns and there is absolutely no way to vacuum them all up by passing laws to make them go away. We can’t make even the slightest dent in the amount of illegal drugs smuggled into this nation, so there is no way we’ll ever completely eliminate the availability of guns to people who should not have them.


In the world of reality and clear thinking, the only way to fight fire in the hands of criminals, is to have equal fire to stop them with.

I was recently talking to a Chicago Police Captain on other business, and Chicago, like the District of Columbia and New York City, have virtual bans on possessing handguns. I asked this 25-year veteran Captain if there was any shortage of handguns on Chicago streets, and he laughed at the absurdity of my question. In the case of Chicago, the law-abiding generally don’t have handguns, while the violent criminals mostly do.


The United States District Court, which has jurisdiction in the District of Columbia, recently ruled the D.C. handgun ban unconstitutional on the basis that it clearly violates the citizens’ right to bear arms under Article II of the Bill of Rights. Of course, that decision is being appealed to the full court on the laughable basis that the ruling will increase violent crime. There are few places in the United States that have a higher violent crime rate involving handguns than the District of Columbia, so it is doubtful it could get much worse.


And what excuse does the anti-gun crowd come up with to explain why their gun ban doesn’t work? They blame guns coming in from neighboring states with more liberal gun laws. If the entire United States enacted a strict gun ban, the same people would blame guns being smuggled in from other nations. Again, we can’t seem to stem the flow of illegal drugs into this nation, but these bright thinkers will still insist a complete gun ban would reduce gun violence. It follows the same line of thinking of committed Communists, who insist Communism and Socialism will work, but it just hasn’t been done right yet.

The problem is human nature, which is and always has been a constant we have to deal with, but these “progressive” thinkers always seem to leave that out of the equation.

So getting back to this tragedy in Virginia in which 22 students died and another 21 were injured, many of those undoubtedly in critical condition, the one thing the anti-gun crowd will never admit is that one student with a concealed handgun in the right place at the right time could have saved some -- or all of them.


But as usual, nobody but the responding cops had guns. The only option the students trapped on that campus could do was run, hide, jump…or get shot. In a state with a liberal concealed handgun law, not one of those students were able to fight back with the same means the killer had, and that is what I find inexcusable.


If you live in a state that has a Shall Issue concealed gun law, and if you have obtained a gun permit, for Heaven’s sake carry the gun! Here in Oregon, we have the same Shall Issue laws on the books, but far too many of those who obtain the permits do not carry the gun on their person. Women carry the guns primarily in their purse, and the men often have the gun concealed out in the glove compartment of their car. In the real world, if you need a gun to defend yourself and others, you’ll need to access it immediately. A gun in your car parked outside is about as useless as a broken leg.
