What A Dick:
The Owner of the gun store who sold Cho a 9mm said that Cho didn't say why he wanted the gun. Really? Do most people who buy a gun tell the seller who they are going to shoot? What I mean is, how many 23 year old Korean college students buy hand guns for hunting deer? What if he had told the owner that he was going to shoot a bunch of people? Would he have not sold him the gun? Who would have thought that non-citizens with histories of mental problems could legally buy guns?
The other thing I can say about this is that I think race relations have come a long way. Minorities have now successfully infiltrated the world of serial killers and psycho paths. John Lee Malvo, John Muhammad and now Cho Seung-Hui have joined the ranks and broken a glass ceiling that for many years, has been a club exclusively for crew cut white guys with three names. We are now all truly equal. MLK would have been proud.
