One thing that is jacked up about the ban crowd when they start screaming, is that this is a PRIME, no, PERFECT example of why banning doesn't work.

What banning does, is that it takes away the defenses of law abiding citizens, and makes it easier for them to be attacked. This is the second time this has happened at the same school. It painfully (ask the families affected just how painful it is) obvious that IT DOESN'T WORK. They need to wake the hell up, and be held liable for damages.

It sounds like it was a routine traffic stop gone bad.

From what they're saying now it sounds like the second victim was actually the gunman.. Either way, they've resumed classes there.

Once again Trip I agree with you! Not too long ago there were protests at the local community college where I live, and from what I've heard the Virginia Tech shooting along with other various shootings in the past were brought up as points against the ban of firearms on campus. So far I hear that they are considering lifting the ban of firearms, but nothing is concrete yet.

its sad indeed. but if there was an armed student nearby its possible they could have saved that officer's life. citizen intervention has frequently saved the lives of officers.

want someone to blame? blame the anti-gun crowd. ask obama feinstein holder and every single politician everywhere that is against ccw and private gun ownership how they think that officer's family will spend xmas.

Apparently it started as a traffic stop on VT campus.. the shooter was described as a younger male wearing a back pack. I guess they are assuming its a student

This is a terrible for the deads family no diubt but now who do you think will get the blame? Just the gunman or all gun owners because remember to the anti gunners and ohbummer lovers if you have a gun all you are is a murduring cruel barbarian that has no place to live in this happy peacfull socialist brain washed earth of ours..

Discussions are starting to spread about once again trying to convince Virginia Tech to allow firearms on campus. I've talked with some of my friends that are currently Virginia Tech students and they have agree the firearms ban has got to change, and that several of them are contemplating confronting VT about this.
