Unfortunately I find myself reporting a shooting at Virginia Tech. Virginia Tech was the location of a mass shooting in 2007 that seemed to fill the anti-gunners with glee as it gave them a reason to proselytize for more restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms. As of this writing few details are available. What we do know is one officer and one student have been murdered and the suspect remains at large:
During a traffic stop on campus, the suspect shot and killed a Virginia Tech police officer and then fled on foot through a nearby parking lot, officials said.
A second person was later found dead in that parking lot, the university said.
A university alert released after the shooting described the possible shooter as a white male wearing gray sweat pants, a gray hat with a neon green brim, a maroon hoodie and backpack.
Before the anti-gunners start claiming this as a prime example of why we need more gun control I’m going to point out the obvious fact that Virginia Tech is a gun-free zone. In other words it is already illegal to carry a gun there but the law was made irrelevant by the sheer fact that laws don’t stop criminals from acting. No number of laws would have prevented this event.
