Cold, Dead Hands

We have to look at what happened here, but it doesn't change my views on the Second Amendment, except to make sure that these kinds of weapons don't fall into the hands of bad people.
- Senator John McCain

As far as policy, the President believes that there is a right for people to bear arms, but that all laws must be followed. And certainly bringing a gun into a school dormitory and shooting -- I don't want to say numbers because I know that they're still trying to figure out many people were wounded and possibly killed, but obviously that would be against the law and something that someone should be held accountable for.
- White House Press Secretary Dana Perino

The National Rifle Association joins the entire country in expressing our deepest condolences to the families of Virginia Tech University and everyone else affected by this horrible tragedy.
- Andrew Arulanandam, Director of Public Affairs, National Rifle Association

It's Gun, Bibles & Babies, son! God Bless the U-nited States!

A sad state of affairs- how many guns are enough? I actually wrote my State Rep. Robt. Godshall about it- he was against the proposed state limit of one handgun purchase a month. Who really needs a dozen handguns a year? Insane!

Well old Chuck Heston is in the last stages of Alzheimers- Wonder if they will be able to pry that rifle out of his hands now?

I still loved him in "Omega Man"
Good Stuff! Anthony Zerbe rocked too! "Neville!"

My jaw just hits the floor when I hear people continue to make the argument that these folks would "just find another way" to accomplish their aims if their easy access to guns were taken away, as if someone could manage to kill 31 people as quickly and efficiently with a rock or a knife. They've chosen to wave so long to reality and willingly accept these domestic mass murders as the collateral damage required to preserve their precious firearms.

And The Beast using the occasion to send his press secretary out just to calm down the hillbilly base and reassure them that no amount of dead bodies or human carnage will ever be enough to make them consider stricter gun control laws (let's tip our hats to the 2004 Congress that let that semi-automatic ban expire), well, the mind reels.

There's no hope, so long as the voting public refuses to consider any pro-control politician as a viable candidate. Speaking out on the side of sanity is a one-way ticket to Palookaville.

What in the hell is wrong with us?

And "Omega Man" rules. Even as a kid I got that sly "crucifixion" shot at the end. Nice to see Zerbe show up in those last two Matrix pictures, too.
