I encourage them to continue w/ their plans. The statements by Peter Hamm and in this editorial by PEG head Elilita Habtu show how disingenuous and hypocritical these organizations are:
There seems to be a great misunderstanding on the part of the author of the article, "Protest Easy Guns Not Welcomed On Our Campus." The author seems to think that protesteasyguns.org simply wish to push an agenda and use the tragedy at Tech to further its cause. This is absolutely false.Let me explain to you who stands behind protesteasyguns.org. They are concerned Americans who are tired of gun violence in America, who want a change in current U.S. gun laws that make it far too easy for dangerous individuals to purchase guns.
So they aren't pushing an agenda but are pushing an agenda. Gotcha.
Let them protest. Let them show not only the students at VT what they're all about but all the people watching the coverage. Show them that the PuSH'ers will do anything and dance on anybody's grave to get what they want.
