We cant control the illness. We can control the guns!
We can control the guns!
NYTimes op-ed by Nicholas Kulish
The large magazine weapons used by Cho in the Virginia Tech massacre are not used for hunting. They are not used for target shooting. Their only use is by drug lords and nutcases like Cho to kill people. He should not have been sold the guns or ammunition. Our handgun laws are full of holes, underfunded and poorly enforced. Horrific incidents like the one at Virginia Tech aren't even the main problem. People die every day in our cities in drug wars, robberies, car jackings, child gun accidents, suicides drive-by shootings as a result of our legislators' failure to pass and enforce effective handgun control laws.
