Rep. McCarthy responds to the Virginia Tech shootings
You knew it was coming so she can push that friggen bill. Damn I HATE agendas. When will these idiots learn? I am willing to bet that if ONE of those students was armed, this idiot would have been taken down after the first few shots and most, if not all, of those people would be alive right now. Anyway, here it is...
Rep. McCarthy Statement on Virginia Tech Shootings
Monday April 16, 2007
Today’s shooting in VA is most deadly campus shooting in US history
Earlier today, tragedy struck the campus of Virginia Tech. Young people just beginning to make their mark on the world have been killed in a senseless act of gun violence. Not only have they been robbed of their future, but society as a whole have been stripped of any future contributions they may have made to make our world a better place. My heart goes out to the families of those lost in this heinous act.
It has been more than a decade since meaningful legislation that would prevent gun violence has been signed into law. This pattern must change. For too long Congress has stood idle while gun violence continues to take its toll. The unfortunate situation in Virginia could have been avoided if Congressional leaders stood up to the gun lobby.
It is imperative that Congress acts now and to fully protect our homeland. It is reprehensible that it takes tragedies like today’s events for Congress to stand up and act. I offer my sincere sympathies to the families and will remain committed to passing common sense legislation to prevent further acts of gun violence.
