Thirty Two Lives Ended

Virginia Tech shootings cost America thirty two lives today. Unfortunately, the killer used guns. Expect to hear howls for more and more control of our right to defend ourselves. If only one person had the ability to defend themselves the human cost could have been far less.

When will America wake up to the fact that the world is not a safe place? We already know that the good guys cannot be everywhere they're needed. Yet we willingly place all of our security into the hands of those who cannot, by their own admission, be where we need them when we need them. We are constantly reminded of our vulnerability, but we will do nothing of our own accord, we wait and then demand the government to do something to save us.

Actions like these should prod each of us to prepare for our own defense. In fact, it probably won't. What will it take for people to regain their will to defend themselves?
