A Tragedy

A candle light vigil at Virginia Tech

The gun rampage on the Virginia Tech campus, which has claimed the lives of as many as 31 students -- is the deadliest school shooting incident in the history of the United States.

John Nichols writes:
The first question, appropriately, is: Why did this happen?

The second question, equally appropriately, is: What should we do about it?

There is is a simple answer to Question No. 1: America is a violent country.

Here is a modest proposal: Instead of adopting a particular line, rent Michael Moore's "Bowling for Columbine."

Down With Tyranny adds:
Virtually all the far right bloggers were yelling for students to be carrying guns so someone could have killed the shooter. Maybe someone would have. Alternatively, the more guns around, the more people tend to get shot. The fewer guns around, the fewer people get shot.

There are a lot of guns in Iraq too.
