The events that took place at Virginia Tech, on Monday, were horrible.
Sadly, every major network and local affiliate are plastering as many pieces of stock footage from the scene of the shootings, as well as scenes from Columbine and locations of other school shootings, in a ghoulish dance macabre, which is producing a great deal of horror, and providing absolutely no useful news.
Now the critics have come out. "We need more gun control" We need better campus policing" blah, blah, blah.
The police response was appropriate.
The security measures were as good as they can be.
You can't prevent this kind of horror. No way, no how. Not here in the U.S., with a small campus police force, not in Baghdad with 20,000 soldiers.
Unless anyone has any questions about the types of firearms used or about the appropriate security/police response, this is the first and last I will say on the subject.
If you are the praying sort, your time would be better spent praying for the dead, the wounded, their families and others affected by this tragedy.
Turn your televisions to a different channel.
God be with you,
