Violence In The Classroom And At The Court (April 23, 2007)
Making sense of the slaughter at Virginia Tech is trying. There simply are too many nuts who have access to guns. Those who oppose efforts to control guns are single issue personalities. The gun is the iron penis. Any suggestion that there could be restrictions even on others who could cause harm triggers a primal response. The unconscious fear of castration and emasculation trumps all other issues and concerns. The Democrats cannot touch the issue except perhaps to require more reporting of mental health determinations. However, when the criminals shoot the sheriff and the deputy, the cops and mayors may take action. Another day on the streets.
