I am sure by now everybody in America and the world is aware of the heinous massacre at Virginia Tech, Virginia. A lone, mad gunman had taken the lives of 32 people before he shot himself. As I write these paragraphs, the blame game has started and fingers are pointed and no doubt this game will carry on for the next few days if not weeks.
As a responsible firearm owner my heart and sympathy goes out to the people and their families that lost loved ones in this tragic and unnecessary bloodbath. There is also no doubt in my mind that the anti-gun lobby will exploit this tragedy in all its gory details to further their political agenda. They will, as in the past, not shy back from lumping us together with the feeble minded criminals that commit such heinous atrocities.
It is situations like this where we have to be on our guard and make sure the people at large learn that legal and law abiding firearm owners are NOT responsible for such crimes and that owning firearms does NOT contribute to such crimes.
