Opposing CNN piece to Nugent's.....
I have a very hard time trying to understand the image of a Glock handgun and a Walther handgun running around the campus by themselves shooting people. I never knew that a piece of steel and plastic had a heart, mind, and a set of so well developed extremities as to cause so much death and destruction all by themselves...

Ha ha, he looks like he's drunk. No wonder he sees floating guns.
Journalist Tom Plate believes there are far too many guns floating around the United States.

this guy's clearly a liberal hack, pulling out all the tired old arguments, right down to "I got mugged and did everything he said, and he didn't kill me, so you should do that too."

I Can Answer His Question
What was to stop him!? Maybe an armed and responsible citizen that was aware of his current surroundings and not willing to "surrender" to a thug with a gun pointed at his head?
"...I quickly complied with all of his requests. Perhaps because of my rapid response (it is called surrender), he chose not to shoot me; but he just as easily could have. What was to stop him?"
Maybe it was a trick question...

I got as far as this first line and knew all I needed to about this man.
LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Most days, it is not at all hard to feel proud to be an American. But on days such as this, it is very difficult.
Please Sir, feel free to take the earliest opportunity to exit stage LEFT.

If Mr. Plate would have had a weapon he could have stopped this guy from killing his next victim!
Ted was a little hot under the collar!
If it is not in the US Constitution then the Federal Government should not be doing it.

Has anyone here seen this guy Paul Lemke (President of the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence) on the news channels whining about gun control? Shame on all of these people to use a tragedy like the one at V-Tech to push their own political issues.
A couple of hours ago a man armed with a revolver took two people hostage at Johnson's Space Center in Houston killing one of the hostages and then turning the gun on himself. The gunman used a 5 shot snubby, not some "High powered, evil GLOCK" (like the media has been referring to the guns as). That too was a gun free zone. What regulations or assault weapons ban would have stopped that. As law enforcement digs further into this case they might even find out that the gun man legally purchased the weapon.
The point is if evil is set on doing something then they'll probably carry out the plan. I think we should all be prepared to face that evil if it were to one day (GOD forbid) cross our paths.

Sure he would. Then, as soon as he gave up his gun, he'd do a "Rosie" and hire an armed bodyguard. He's an elitist jerk alright.

Yeah...I sent CNN an e-mail on this one suggesting that had Mr. Plate been attacked with a baseball bat and a kitchen knife that he'd want to ban baseball and cooking!

Since the students were not killed by a korean, but a 9mm and .22 cal. handgun, doesn't that make Cho one of the victims as well? Guess when a memorial is built this victim will also be honored?
