Eight months ago the Virginia legislature debated and rejected a bill that would have allowed students and faculty at Virginia Tech to go armed to class, as Americans are allowed by our Constitution. The state of Virginia and Virginia Tech University is currently in direct criminal violation of the Constitution of the United States by persecution of any man who owns and bears arms on the campus. When an attack comes, the students and faculty at Virginia Tech are defenseless victims, and that fact has not been lost on the students and faculty, nor on decent honest citizens in Virginia. Eight months ago local newspaper editors wrote editorials demanding that Virginia Tech comply with the Constitution and stop rendering its students defenseless. Read story.
When the Virginia Legislature debated the Virginia Tech "gun free zone" last summer, Virginia Tech pointed to its gang of blue gun thugs and promised to "protect" its students. Like all left wingnuts the Virginia Legislature bought their nonsense, and failed to pass the state law which would have beaten some sense into criminals at Virginia Tech. University President Charles Steger and Virginia Tech Campus Blue Gun Thug Chief W.R. Flinchum hid in their slimy offices and pretended that the students were being protected. It should be painfully obvious to every American by now that what Steger and Flinchum did was to create a killing field of unarmed and unprotected victims.
When Mr. Cho decided to kill students at Virginia Tech he knew that none of them would be able to defend themselves. He knew that by the policy of Steger, Flinchum, and affirmed by the Virginia Legislature just 8 months ago, none of them were going to be able to defend themselves. They had all been disarmed and left vulnerable. All their guns were left at parents homes, or perhaps in their cars. In a "gun free zone" only the killer has a gun. Its an open invitation for nuts who kill. It is not the first time in America that gun free zones have been chosen as places to kill.
In contrast, rural America is generally safe, because rural Americans are usually armed. Few criminals will rob, steal, or assault rural Americans because those who do end up face down in their own blood. Rural Americans are away from gangs of blue gun thugs. Very few criminals will dare to assault a rural American home. Most of those who do end up face down in their own blood, and are never heard from again.
When someone is contemplating a serious crime, another law, a "gun free zone" only guarantees him a free fire zone, safe from any self defense by his victims. It does not stop the crime. In every American city that has declared itself "gun free zone" the crime rates have gone up. It guarantees a wealth of easy targets for those who do crime. In the UK where they have rounded up guns from honest citizens the crime rates have soared. In contrast, in Switzerland every man is required to own military style fully automatic weapons and be trained in their use. In Switzerland violent crime is almost nonexistent because everyone knows that every man is armed and ready to defend himself and his family. The USA has gone from an armed and defended society to a patchwork of well defended areas and open season crime areas such as Virginia Tech where nobody can defend themselves.
One April morning Mr. Cho went to a dormitory and shot a young female and then the Resident Advisor who foolishly came unarmed to her aid. Mr. Cho knew that there would be no defense raised in the dormitory because it was a "gun free zone." Only criminal killers like Mr. Cho have guns in a "gun free zone." Everyone else is a sitting duck. He could kill without risk. Eventually the blue gun thugs led by Blue Gun Thug Chief W.R. Flinchum arrived, but by then Mr. Cho had long since walked away. Cho tucked his gun back into his backpack, and calmly walked back to his own dorm room. Of course his room was also a "gun free zone," but criminals pay no attention to such laws. They only are followed by sitting ducks, the unarmed victims of criminals.
After Mr. Cho finished his dorm killing, he stored his gun into his backpack and calmly walked back to his dormitory. Mr. Cho kept guns in his dormitory room, in a "gun free zone," because Mr. Cho was planning to be a criminal. He was unconcerned with the law against guns. Laws matter to law abiding citizens, not to criminals. And of course Steger and Chief Flinchum are criminals too. The fundamental law in the USA says, The right to own and bear arms shall not be abridged." Mr.'s Steger and Flinchum enforce policy that violates the fundamental law, the "gun free zone." Criminal law breakers pretend to protect students by enforcing their illegal "laws." What a total joke.
The blue gun thugs led by Chief Flinchum "investigated" the murders in the dormitory. Blue gun thugs love to "investigate." They revel in the false importance of taking control, keeping all the other curious people out while they satisfy their own sordid curiosity. They "secured" the area around the murder site. Some leftist media pundits have asked why they didn't "lock down" the whole Virginia Tech campus. More rational minds wonder what good that would have done. The killer was a VT student. He was free to wander about the campus, even on lockdown. All a so-called lockdown would have done would be to enclose Mr. Cho with all his intended victims. Should they have canceled classes? Would that have done anything but move the delay violence? It gave Mr. Cho a free pass to go to the Engineering building and start shooting dozens of unarmed victims, freedom guaranteed by Virginia Tech's administration.
But suppose that honest citizens had been allowed to arm themselves for their own self defense? A notice of a killing on campus that morning would have put them on notice not to leave their guns in their cars. When Mr. Cho started shooting in classrooms, several of his intended victims would have been armed. When he shot through doors trying to kill those holding doors against him, someone inside could have fired back. Students hiding behind desks waiting their turn to be shot could have instead have fired back. Even engaging Mr. Cho in a temporary exchange of ineffective fire would have greatly reduced the total number of deaths. Mr. Cho's death toll would have been far fewer. Had even a few of the students and professors had a weapon, instead of being totally defenseless, the outcome would have been far different.
What about University President Charles Steger and Virginia Tech Campus Blue Gun Thug Chief W.R. Flinchum's promise to "protect" the students at Virginia Tech in the "gun free zone?" Did they protect any of the 32 dead professors and students? Did they protect any of the 30 more wounded?
Of course the blue gun thugs arrived after the killing was done, and have been playing "investigation" for days. They love to "Investigate" after the crime is done. They parade up and down for cameras with assault rifles, drive cars with 22 flashy lights. Wear monkey suits with impressive patches and badges. But they don't protect anyone. All they really do is to exacerbate the death toll by preventing We The People from protecting ourselves. Without the criminal "gun free zone," without the blue gun thugs, without the incompetent Mr. VT President Steger, very few people would have died. Without the criminal "gun free zone," there is a good chance that Mr. Cho would never have begun his rampage. Without the criminal "gun free zone," there is a good chance that the Resident Advisor could have stopped Mr. Cho and ended the killing. Without the criminal "gun free zone," several students in the engineering building would have fired back. Without the criminal "gun free zone," there would have been only a few deaths before Mr. Cho fell. The illegal "gun free zone" that prevents We The People from defending ourselves was the underlying cause of at least 20 deaths and at least 20 wounded at Virginia Tech.
A comparison can be made with the Texas Tower shooting some years ago at the University of Texas. The crazy gunman took a position in a high clock tower and began shooting random people within several hundred yards in every direction. Within a very few minutes numerous citizens grabbed their own guns and began firing back. The hail of returned fire stopped the killing and kept the gunman's head down while a citizen and an off-duty blue gun thug made their way across an open area to the tower. After climbing the tower, the off duty gun thug shot the nutter several times with his pistol, but it was the citizen's shotgun that finally stopped the crazy gunman.
At the Virginia Tech University there were no armed citizens to return fire. All that many citizens could do was to hide in their classrooms and wait to die. Some jumped out the 2nd or 3rd floor windows, breaking legs or ankles. One old professor, a Holocaust survivor, held the door for a while as students jumped to the ground, but he soon died, and so did those slow to jump. In a "gun free zone" everybody is vulnerable. Nobody is protecting anybody. A single crazy nut can do horrible damage. The nuts all know that we are vulnerable. Mass murders in "gun free zones" and disarmed cities are increasing. Left wingnuts ban guns and the people die. University President Charles Steger and Virginia Tech Campus Blue Gun Thug Chief W.R. Flinchum are directly responsible for the deaths of at least 20 students and the wounding of 20 more. Their stupid and illegal "gun free zone" policy resulted in mass murder that was easily preventable. Their stupidity and criminal malfeasance of office is the underlying cause of the massive number of deaths. Their illegal "gun free zone" policy turned a minor incident into the largest mass murder ever in the USA.
Its time to reclaim our country and restore our rights to defend ourselves. We need to strike down criminals like University President Charles Steger and Virginia Tech Campus Blue Gun Thug Chief W.R. Flinchum. We need to arm the honest citizens so that crazy killers shy away from futile attacks.------------ Update 4-18-07 12:45 PM -------------
News reports on FOX say that Rider University in New Jersey is now on "lockdown" because "a student had a weapon." Hello???! Anybody home upstairs above your pathetic gun thug ears? American citizens have an unmitigated right to own and bear arms. An armed student is reason to feel safe. Its not a reason for concern. Its time for the blue gun thugs to start obeying and enforcing the law.
