Another word from our sponsor

On 04/17/2007 Wayne LaPierre, the NRA president, made this statement on the official NRA web site.

"The National Rifle Association joins the entire country in expressing our deepest condolences to the families of Virginia Tech University and everyone else affected by this horrible tragedy.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families.

We will not have further comment until all the facts are known."


* Both guns (Glock Model 19 and Walther P22) were purchased by Cho legally in the state of Virgina.

* A Virginia magistrate judge ruled that Seung-Hui Cho might be a danger to himself or others. However, he still passed the NICS background check, which is part of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1994 .

People WITH Guns kill people. Whether you like her or not, Rosie O'Donnell's got it right. There will never be gun control-hell, I like the word gun management better, in the USA with a lobby as powerfull as the NRA.

There are laws in place(Brady Bill) to prevent mentally ill people from owing guns. the Problem lies in the whole patient confidentiality issue.

I watched an interview this weekend with a doctor who is an advocate for the mentally ill. He said..I really can't believe it..but he said we can't keep guns from the mentally ill based on what they "might" do.

Is he right? I don't know, but I wouldn't feel comfortable knowing my crazy -ass neighbor had a gun. It would possibly drive ME mad.

Its a horrible thing..without a clear concrete answer that will satisfy everyone.
