Like the rest of you, I'm still sorting out in my own mind all of my feelings about the tragedy that recently occurred in Blacksburg, Virginia. However the hairs on the back of my neck go up when I hear the same old chorus of:
- We must stop such a thing from ever happening again. Really, how?
- The murderer, Cho, was a victim too. Sorry, I just can't feel sorry for him.
- All guns must be banned. This is a very complex issue and isn't quite so simple.
- Much more sensitivity training would have prevented this. Really, how?
Mark Steyn makes some excellent points here. And David Berner does the same here
