Clear Thinking on a Tragedy

America's national treasure, Ann Coulter, weighs in on the Virginia Tech murders. See her column at

Late last summer, a shooting near campus prompted students to clamor again for loosening campus rules against armed self-defense. Virginia Tech officials turned up their noses. In response to student Bradford Wiles's campus newspaper op-ed piece in support of concealed carry on campus, Virginia Tech associate vice president Larry Hincker scoffed:

"[I]t is absolutely mind-boggling to see the opinions of Bradford Wiles…The editors of this page must have printed this commentary if for no other reason than malicious compliance. Surely, they scratched their heads saying, 'I can't believe he really wants to say that.' Wiles tells us that he didn't feel safe with the hundreds of highly trained officers armed with high powered rifles encircling the building and protecting him. He even implies that he needed his sidearm to protect himself."

The nerve!

Hincker continued: "The writer would have us believe that a university campus, with tens of thousands of young people, is safer with everyone packing heat. Imagine the continual fear of students in that scenario. We've seen that fear here, and we don't want to see it again…Guns don't belong in classrooms. They never will. Virginia Tech has a very sound policy preventing same."

  1. yes, yes. above this box i am typing in, it says "leave your comment" ...well, here are my comments:

    1. i am disgusted that you havent changed the picture of me. yet, i feel slightly consoled by the fact that no one has looked at your page besides myself and you, so no one has seen my picture.

    2. Your ranting on this so-called "blog" is quite entertaining. I can imagine you sitting at your computer just typing away, laughing to yourself as you make fun of Al Gore, among other public figures whom you despise.

    3. Mommy left me all alone while she goes to a purse party, and i am certainly hoping that she buys me a purse.

    4. I made $42 baby-sitting this week. =]

    5. Alex was sulking today, and mommy & i liked a sulky alex because when he talked, we couldn't understand him.

    6. You are a nerd.

    i love you, fashapasha.
