Good call, asshole.

Sen. John McCain says the shooting rampage at Virginia Tech does not change his view that the Constitution guarantees everyone the right to carry a weapon.

“We have to look at what happened here, but it doesn’t change my views on the Second Amendment, except to make sure that these kinds of weapons don’t fall into the hands of bad people,” McCain said Monday in response to a question.

“I do believe in the constitutional right that everyone has, in the Second Amendment to the Constitution, to carry a weapon,” he said. “Obviously we have to keep guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens.”


OH! Is that all we have to do?? WHAT AN AMAZING THOUGHT! So basically what he's saying is that people who sell guns have to be CLAIRVOYANT, right? I'm pretty sure Cho Seung-Hui didn't have an extensive criminal record before his rampage, which is also true of all the past teenage killers who decided to exact revenge upon their tormentors.

I mean, the sheer idiocy of "no guns for bad people" is so extraordinary as to be practically a sign of mental illness. Shall we start relying on pre-cogs as well?

Part of the horror of the Virginia Tech massacre-- and every incident like it-- is that they come from people who seemed fine, who seemed normal, who seemed just like everyone else. If the friends, family and acquaintances of a soon-to-be murderer can't imagine such a thing, how does McCain think A PERSON SELLING GUNS will be able to?
