Please bring your guns to class. Many of you have concealed weapons permits. Use them. We must take a stand against maniacs and terrorists everywhere and rearm the common man.
The facts are simple. If any one of the victims at Virginia Tech had been carrying a weapon there would be 2 people dead now instead of 33. If any one of the victims on each of the 9/11 airliners had been carrying a weapon there would be a handful of dead terrorists instead of 4000 innocent men, women, and children.
Bad people will always get guns. The only way to curb their violence is to be prepared to respond in a timely manner, to be equipped to defend yourself and the innocents around you. I unconditionally abhor the initiation of violence, but I likewise detest that evil is allowed to roam licentiously unchallenged.
I personally have brandished a weapon on two separate occasions, both with the result that an evildoer was brought swiftly to justice. No one was hurt on either occasion, but property was restored, and bad behavior was corrected.
If you own a handgun, please bring it with you, wherever you go, and know that you have my support and gratitude. If you ever have to use it, you will have the thanks of many more.
