Why People Will Continue To Be Shot To Death In America

Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine's words and attitude make it obvious why the Virginia Tech Massacre won't be the last in America.

From CNN.com:
Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine announced that at the university's request, he was appointing an independent panel to review Monday's tragedy.

However, Kaine said he wasn't interested in arguments about gun control.

"People who want to take this within 24 hours of the event and make it their political hobby horse to ride, I've got nothing but loathing for them," Kaine said.

I'll go out on a limb here and call Gov. Kaine an asshole. The first thing that popped in to my head when I heard about the shooting was gun control. Why was an angry, disturbed young man able to waltz into a gun store and buy a Glock and 50 rounds of ammunition with a credit card? Because it is his right as guaranteed by the Constitution.

You want to buy a shotgun to shoot ducks? Fine, pass a background check, have a waiting period, and go shoot ducks. You want to buy a Glock? No. Glocks are only for killing people.
