    Don't take it too hard.

    This sort of thing is bound to happen.

    Just calmly think up your reply for the next time somebody offersthis shootingas a reason deny self-defense to college students.

    Students hurt and kill each other occasionally without firearms, too.

    There is no reason thousands of students should be unable to protect themselves just because a very small thimble-full mis-use firearms.

    It would be like erasing freedom of the press because communists print manifesto's. Heh, heh, heh. If you're sharp, you could spot the political leaning of your antagonist and insert the appropriate counter-personality: ...erasing freedom of the press just because Rush Limbaugh is an idiot. Or, ...erasing freedom of the press just because Michael Moore is an idiot.

    What's the count within the last 18 months? 55 dead or wounded at VA Tech? What was the count at the other university? Got a long way to go before the damage by idiots and so forth out-weighs the carnage that could be prevented.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Investigators said four people were inside the home when the shooting happened and that witnesses told investigators that all four, including Harper and Frasco, spent the afternoon drinking and partying.
