This week marks five years since the Virginia Tech shootings. But advocates for gun control have made little progress. The politics behind America's gun culture.

You know what got those 32 stiudent at Viginia Tech killed?
The fact that none of the students were allowed to be armed in their own self defense and the fact that the cops spent 45 minutes getting the perimeter secured before they even entered the school. One cop, responding to the gunfire could have saved more than 20 lives . One student legally armed could have saved all of them.
Here's a link to the after action review to prove my point:
