I was going to post something else today, but I decided that I had to comment on the massacre at Virginia Tech.
I heard about what happened while I was sitting in class, which made it even more surreal. I imagined what it might have been like for those professors and students. While I sat there, I looked around the room and tried to formulate a plan in the event of something like that happening in my own classroom. You can't prepare for that.
It's time to bring back the gun debate. Democrats have let this issue fall by the wayside because of their fear of losing support among the 3G's (guns, god, and (anti-)gay) contingent. It's time to stop being afraid. Hell, we don't have their support anyway, so screw 'em.
I know it would be virtually impossible to pass any kind of gun control legislation under the Bush administration, but when we elect the next President, let's get it done, once and for all.
My heart goes out to all the families affected by this senseless act.
