Virginia Tech

Dry Bones cartoon: Preventing crazies from getting guns is like preventing whackos from getting nukes.
The slaughter of innocent victims at Virginia Tech has prompted a national debate in the United States. It seems to me that the challenge is to prevent the bad guys from getting guns (or nukes).

A simple truth

But political correctness does not allow for making the distinction between the good guys and the bad guys.. . and therein lies the problem for an America trapped by its PC blinders.

Here in Israel, where where nobody can walk onto a college campus without being frisked and checked by security ...and where lots of people are licensed to carry legal firearms, and do, a lone shooter isn't shooting fish in a barrel.

So now what does the West do about the whacko Iranian President, his rambling and violent threats, his receiving messages from Allah, and his vow to wipe Israel off the map, and his drive to get his hands on nukes?
