Worst Killing Rampage In US History

Another sick individual with access to deadly weapons wreaks havoc in America. His time the killing was at Virginia Tech. Another sad episode in a long running American tragedy.

Pres. Bush issued a prayerful statement, offering practical support in the aftermath of this event. What was missing from his statement, and what will surely need to be discussed once more facts are known, is the ease of access we have to automatic weapons in our country.

Automatic weapons are, as a matter of fact, only ever used at target ranges and to kill human beings. If you insist on wanting to fire one at a range, rent it from Federally licensed ranges or buy one and be required to store it at the range. When they are out in the street they are surely going to cost lives, whether by accident or intentionally.
