Left in Aboite has a post that sort of leads me to this insane rambling. I didn't want to use his comment area as my soapbox.

It's not gun control we need, it's police that aren't hidding behind trees and cars, all while wearing body armour. Just like Columbine. All the cops are taking cover while the victims are in there getting shot down. Good job chief, have another doughnut.

The thing is the gun used weren't machine guns or anything crazy. I'm not gun expert, but it seems glock 9mm is pretty easy to get, don't all the rappers have them? All the control in the world wouldn't stop this kind of thing. If you want a gun you can get one. I know a guy that knows a guy, and I bet most people do. They might not admit it. Background checks and bs like that won't stop someone from getting a gun or killing people. If it's not a gun then they go with a homemade bomb strapped to their chest.

The problem isn't gun control, the problem is media coverage. NBC has suck bellow Fox news. (If that is possible) They way they show all the video and pictures and ramblings of that Cho guy. Remember before you go on a killing rampage, send a tape to NBC so they can make you famous after you kill yourself. I bet his parents are so proud, after slaving away in thier dry cleaning buisness so Jr. can go to school and make something of himself, he repays them by becomeing a famous killer. Couldn't NBC wait till the victims bodies were cold before they got there "scoop". I am surprised they let police or FBI look at the package before they started showing it on the air.

    Consider all the airtime and column space given to the villain of the Virginia tragedy, to his 23-page statements and his 43 sickening photographs. Now compare it with the references one needs to search for two heroes who gave their own lives to save others'.

    Do NBC and others find no significance and educational value to highlight the sacrifice made by these two gentlemen?

    I hope that media will suspend repeatedly playing the killer's tapes and videos and dedicate some space to honor examples of bravery like Liviu Librescu, the 76-year-old maths professor who held shut the door of his classroom while his pupils scrambled to safety, and was then shot dead .

    Another fallen hero is Virginia Tech student Waleed Mohammed Shaalan, who was hit by three bullets, including one in the head, in an attempt to save a fellow student.

    Shaalan, 32, had been at Virginia Tech since August studying for a Ph.D. in civil engineering. He was ambitious, saying he wanted to follow in the footsteps of Ahmed Zewail, an Egyptian who won the Nobel prize for chemistry in 1999, said his father, Mohammed Shaalan, 65.

    The day before Monday's massacre, Shaalan called home and said he intended to visit Egypt next month and then return to Virginia with his wife and 15-month-old son who had been living in Egypt, his parents said Thursday. The family got another call two days later. The Egyptian Embassy in Washington told them Shaalan had been one of the 32 victims.
