Bush on Va Tech: stay the course!

Among the first comments coming from the White House in reaction to the Virginia Tech campus slaughter, the Bush people made sure to send a quick signal to the gun nuts subset of their power base that they have nothing to panic about in spite of this unfortunate development. To wit, catch this beauty from the lips of official spokesflack Dana Perrino:

"... the President believes in the peoples' constitutional right to bear arms, but that all laws must be enforced."

Apparently, this administration believes that the current Virgina laws -- which allow a deranged individual to walk into a shop and purchase a handgun on a Friday and then use it to blow away thirty-three people going about their daily business on the following Monday -- are working out just fine.
