Victim Disarmament Kills Again

L. Neil Smith at The Libtertarian Enterprise - Neil proclaims that every death and wounding at VA Tech this week was self-inflicted. Yes, a 23-year-old from student pulled the trigger, but it was the victims' own faults that they were not prepared to defend themselves. [tle]

In indisputable point of fact, Tom Mauser, Sarah Brady, Carolyn McCarthy, Charles Schumer, and everybody else like them--with the one notable and noble exception of Texas Congressman Ron Paul, each and every declared candidate for the 2008 presidential race so far is a longtime advocate of victim disarmament--are as responsible for what happened at Virginia Tech as if they'd pulled the trigger themselves.


Just for a moment, allow yourself to imagine, if you're familiar with my twenty-six novels, what would have happened the other day at Virginia Tech (or aboard the 9/11 highjacked airliners) in any of the fictional worlds that I've created for my readers over the past 25 years.

In the North American Confederacy of Win Bear and Lucy Kropotkin [see The Probability Broach, available in print through the "Webley Page" at, or as a graphic novel (both online and dead-tree forms) at], where children usually get their first gun at their sixth birthday party, the instant that idiot drew his tiny weapon and began to point it at somebody, he'd have been filled full of holes from fifty different directions. It all would have ended as nothing more than a "massacre" of one, at the scene and moment of the crime, at the hands of his intended victims.
