The following article was forwarded to me by a man whom is a church Pastor and a regular commentator on Keep and Bear Arms. Glenn and I communicate regularly, and we have become good friends. This article will possibly cause some anger and disgust. For, had the idea expressed in it been implemented. We more than likely wouldn't have had near the tragedy as that which occured Monday in Virginia;

Student Group Wants Campus Gun Ban Lifted

By Christine Hall Staff Writer

After two armed southwest Virginia law students stopped a campus shooting rampage in January, a Second Amendment group at a northern Virginia law school decided it was time to change their own school's ban on guns....

...I think the middle ground is to allow concealed handgun permit holders to carry just like they can anywhere else in Virginia," he said. "You provide extra safety to the student body that way."

Jowyk began researching his law school's gun policy following the January incident in which a disgruntled student at Appalachian Law School, Peter Odighizuwa, allegedly shot and killed the school's dean, a professor and a student on campus before being subdued by two armed students, Mikael Gross and Tracy Bridges.

Gross and Bridges reportedly ran to their cars to fetch their own guns and returned to confront Odighizuwa, who surrendered after allegedly initiating a fistfight.

Jowyk was heartened by the students' intervention. But looking into GMU's gun policy, Jowyk found to his dismay that the school's board of visitors had in 1995 passed a ban on all weapons, concealed or otherwise, except by law enforcement officials.

Anyone who violates the school's gun ban would face administrative repercussions but not criminal charges, according to Jowyk.

Then in April, Virginia's Democratic governor, Mark Warner, signed a law prohibiting local governments from using administrative rules to pass gun restrictions that go beyond existing state law....

(Emphasis added).

Don't know if RAGE quite describes the emotion that I'm feeling in the pit of my stomach. For, there is quite a bit of sickened disgust mixed in as well. Not only are businesses, and public as well as private learning institutions permitted to circumvent We The People's U.S. Constitution. But, to violate the First Law of Nature - Self-Preservation, as well. The very Laws which ALL American governments are supposedly BASED upon.

And, to make matters worse. Recently, the Virginia Legislature again had the opportunity to correct this travesty of justice. Yet, refused to do so. In my minds eye, that makes them complicit in the deaths of the students at Virginia Tech.

Those whom SERVE us in our government are our SERVANTS - NOT our masters. Not only have they been steadily and increasingly subverting the very purposes for which we established our government to begin with. Which, as spelled out in part of the preamble to our Constitution, was to;

"...and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity..."


"This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty....The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Whenever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction...."

"...In America we may reasonably hope that the people will never cease to regard the right of keeping and bearing arms as the surest pledge of their liberty..."

- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries, (1803).

(Mr. Tucker knows that of which he wrote, as he was THERE when it was debated and enacted).

So then, not only do our governments infringe, but they allow the wholesale infringement by our fellow citizens as well. Thereby, effectually eliminating one of the very "blessings" for which we instituted our governments to "secure".

Businesses, learning institutions, etc. all make their livings off of We The People. As it appears, they not only want our money, but our lives as well. For, many show a gross and reckless disregard concerning not only the lives of those whom elevated them to their positions. But, for the Supreme Law of the Land, and the "TRANSCENDENT laws of Nature and of Natures God". (See Federalist #43). Their own safety, and the the ability to continue making money off of us, is paramount to them. Believe that just by its very definition, that is what could very well be called the most selfish and depraved kind of evil.
