Another School Massacre

Well, here we go again.....Another senseless school massacre in the United States. This time the assassin bought his gun, legally, a mere 2 weeks ago. It's like a kid in the candy shop....simple as that. When is enough going to be enough!?

Prepare for the cycle......First, we'll go through the grieving process, asking the 'hows' and 'whys'. Next, it will spin into 'the mind of a killer' and other sensationalist aspects that sell newspapers. (I see 60 minutes has already begun the story.) Afterwards, a brief political debate will ensue, as the lobbies on both sides scrum, with the gun lobby prevailing, reminding Americans that liberal communists want to take guns away, in order to impose an Orwellian, godless state. And, finally, it will return to business as usual in the U.S. of A......until the next massacre.

God Bless America!

Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Bob Dylan, 1962

There has been a growing grassroots student movement on a lot of college campuses with students are asking for the right to carry their own firearms around for protection. Why should only the crazy people get guns...?

I say that if students want to go through the legal process of getting a handgun and a permit to carry it that University Administraions across the U.S. should not be able to keep these law abiding citizens from 'bearing their arms' on campus.

students should concern themselves with if they have enough pencils in their backpack, not bullets....
