Tennessean Newspaper Says Not Enough Done After VT Murder Spree

The Tennessean newspaper this week editorialized that government isn't doing enough about gun control 10 months after the murderous rampage at gun-free Virginia Tech by Seung-Hui Cho.

What's more, the paper continues by suggesting the recent murders at gun-free Northern Illinois University should be a cause for more gun control, and not common-sense (my words) loosening of prohibitions against carry by students, faculty and staff at campuses where people wish the choice to defend themselves.

"It is disturbing that after repeated incidents of campus carnage dating back to Columbine in 1999 and earlier, organizations continue to block effective gun-control legislation. Even worse, some have proposed allowing more guns on campuses, under the Wild West rationale that if every student and teacher is armed, they can defend themselves against a lone, irrational shooter."

Well, Uncle had something to say about that. Read the Tennessean piece first, then click on SayUncle's analysis, titled "How many lies can the Tennessean's editorial board repeat?"

He hit this one out of the park.
