Irony in Virginia - Guns Banned on College Campuses

Dear Everyone;

From another Libertarian group site. The article speaks for itself.
Let teachers and students arm themselves - if they are capable and
willing. If the Virginia law allowing guns on campus had been in
effect the gunman would have been shot down before he killed 32
students.

survive the shoot out.

April 16, 2007 Virginia Gun Control On CampusesPosted by Anthony

  From the Roanoke Times last year:
   
  A bill that would have given college students and employees
  the right to carry handguns on campus died with nary a shot
  being fired in the General Assembly.
   
  House Bill 1572 didn't get through the House Committee on
  Militia, Police and Public Safety. It died Monday in the
  subcommittee stage, the first of several hurdles bills must
  overcome before becoming laws.
   
  The bill was proposed by Del. Todd Gilbert, R-Shenandoah
  County, on behalf of the Virginia Citizens Defense League.
  Gilbert was unavailable Monday and spokesman Gary Frink
  would not comment on the bill's defeat other than to say the
  issue was dead for this General Assembly session.
   
  Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hincker was happy to hear
  the bill was defeated. "I'm sure the university community is
  appreciative of the General Assembly's actions because
  this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel
  safe on our campus."
