A Crucial Distinction
Mark Danziger points out the difference between "blaming the victims" and blaming the flawed doctrine that made them victims.Posted by Rand Simberg at April 21, 2007 10:56 AM
The state of Virginia failed to enforce its law prohibiting weapon sales to those found legally incompetent or dangerous through mental illness. Could it be their own flawed doctrine of cavalier gun proliferation had something to do with that?Posted by Brian Swiderski at April 21, 2007 04:25 PM
"The state of Virginia failed to enforce its law prohibiting weapon sales to those found legally incompetent or dangerous through mental illness."
No, it was the flawed doctrine of the libtard coddling of the mentally incompetent and sheep-like mindset regarding the carrying of weapons on campus. He met all criteria for a legal purchase. He was not involuntarily committed. The law was fully enforced by the existing statutes of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
"Could it be their own flawed doctrine of cavalier gun proliferation had something to do with that?"
Could it be you have twice committed the Andy fallacy in one thread? Yes, you did indeed.

Ah, so the Virginia Legislature passed bogus Potemkin laws to distract us from their real public policy intentions? Clever devils! Who'd have thought mere southerners could be so subtle? And kudos to you, Brian, for seeing through their fiendish deception.Posted by Carl Pham at April 21, 2007 06:46 PM
Mike: "No, it was the flawed doctrine of the libtard coddling of the mentally incompetent"
As opposed to putting them in the White House?
Mike: "and sheep-like mindset regarding the carrying of weapons on campus"
Right, "sheep-like." In a state full of gun-toting conservatives.
Mike: "He met all criteria for a legal purchase."
So you're saying Virginia law allowed a raving batshit psychopath to legally obtain firearms, but you'd rather blame the University because you find it an ideologically gratifying target.
Mike: "Could it be you have twice committed the Andy fallacy in one thread?"
And what, pray tell, is the "Andy fallacy"?
Carl: "Ah, so the Virginia Legislature passed bogus Potemkin laws to distract us from their real public policy intentions?"
The Virginia Legislature doesn't enforce its laws, Virginians do. Or don't.
Carl: "Who'd have thought mere southerners could be so subtle?"
Who'd have thought Southerners could be duplicitous and hypocritical? ROFLMAO!Posted by Brian Swiderski at April 21, 2007 11:59 PM
I think the victims handled themselves like victims. Some have training how to respond and did. Some have experience and responded based on that. Others retreated when they decided that didn't have any other response to control the situation.
The problem is those with training and experience had limited options, and not all limits were imposed by the killer.Posted by Leland at April 22, 2007 02:20 PM
