My heart is sick. I feel so sorry for those that were murdered, as well as the parents and loved ones of the slain students and professors—and all of us here at pray for those whose lives were just senselessly shattered.

But imagine if at least one Virginia Tech student (with a concealed weapons permit) had his .40 caliber Glock with him, locked and loaded, when this little Charlie Chan chump began his murderous mayhem last Monday on the Hokie campus? What would have happened differently?

Would idiot boy have been able to slay 32 students and professors? I doubt it. But then again . . . who knows?

However, I’m a guessin’ that this terminal turd might not have dealt out as much death (if any) if the good guy with the gun drew down on him and doubled tapped the center mass of this ass with a couple of 165 grain COR-BON jacket hollow points.

Yes, if there had been a good guy with a gun, who was licensed and allowed to carry it into class, he could have sent this spawn of Satan to hell where he belongs. In Hades, Cho could, forever in eternity, whine to Hitler and Beelzebub about rich kids, cognac, loneliness and hedonism while wearing a baby blue “Poor Frickin’ Me” T-Shirt and pink tutu.

Unfortunately, there was no concealed weapon in the possession of a concerned citizen to stop this satanic weed from taking root because guns are disallowed on campus. Correct me if I’m wrong, but haven’t the majority of the mass murders within the US in the last 20-30 years been in the Gun Free Zones? Why don’t one of you industrious bloggers Google that stat and get back to me?

Gun Free Zones turn the people who inhabit such places into sitting ducks for insane whack jobs with death wishes. I know, I know, there are campus cops and security guards with plastic badges, golf carts, walkie talkies and pepper spray; however, as a soon to be father of a college student, that line of defense brings zero comfort to me if serious bullet flying $#*& starts hitting the fan in one of her classes.

Look, even the best Rambo like police force equipped to the teeth, driving Vipers and descending en masse on campus in Black Hawk helicopters could not have responded fast enough to kill this Killer Korean Kid. But a fast thinking, well-trained student or professor could have.

I hate to seem pessimistic, but given this post-911 era and our current crappy culture, I don’t see an atmospheric break in this violent weather pattern. I guarantee that even as I type and our nation weeps, there is, somewhere in the United States of Political Correctness, some Islamic Radical or some other disenfranchised dipstick making plans on how he can trump The Question Mark Kid’s quota. Chilling.
