[UPDATE: The diary posted right below this one makes the same observation. Please skip to that one.]
Can someone following the Virginia Tech rampage on television please refute the suggestion made by the AP article I just read, that Bush's near-first words on the VT rampage were an unprovoked defense of the NRA's stance with regards the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
Here is the passage in question:
A White House spokesman said President Bush was horrified by the rampage and offered his prayers to the victims and the people of Virginia.
"The president believes that there is a right for people to bear arms, but that all laws must be followed," spokeswoman Dana Perino said
Please tell me he was asked about gun control- I mean, there are limits here. Right?
