Gun control could have been weaker

I came across this interesting blog post from 31st January, 2006. It talks of the defeat of a bill on Virginia that would have given students the right to carry handguns on campus. Interestingly, it quotes someone from Virginia Tech. Doesn’t look like this resolves anything in the gun debate but I just thought I’d point it out for those interested.

  1. Clearlly enough this bill could not have made the situation worse. The Virginia Tech gunman obviously was willing to carry a gun on campus whether a law permitted him to or not. I hate to say it, but it’s not hard to imagine how this bill, if passed, might have reduced the death toll.
