Huckabee says concealed handgun might have stopped Virginia Tech massacre

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said a concealed handgun carried by a faculty member or student at Virginia Tech might have reduced the toll from Monday’s shooting spree by a student."If somebody had been able to stop the shooter before he was able to kill that many people, there may not have been that many," the former Arkansas governor said Thursday in an interview with radio station KUAR at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in response to a question about carrying concealed weapons.
A longtime hunter, Huckabee has spoken publicly before about his support for concealed-weapon permits _ and his own license to carry.
Seung-Hui Cho, 23, killed 32 people Monday on the Virginia Tech campus before taking his own life.

and his funny little story
Huckabee's son arrested with handgun
By ANDREW DeMILLO, Associated Press Writer 44 minutes ago
David Huckabee, a son of Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, was arrested at an Arkansas airport Thursday after a federal X-ray technician detected a loaded Glock pistol in his carry-on luggage.
"I removed the bag and asked Mr. Huckabee if he knew what he had in the bag," Little Rock police officer Arthur Nugent wrote in a report after being summoned to a security checkpoint. "He replied he did now."
Huckabee, 26, later pleaded guilty in Little Rock District Court after being charged with a misdemeanor count of possessing a weapon in a prohibited place.
"It was a silly mistake," Huckabee told reporters as he left the Pulaski County Jail. When asked whether it would affect his father's presidential campaign, Huckabee responded, "It shouldn't."
District Judge Lee Munson gave Huckabee a one-year suspended jail sentence and ordered him into 10 days of community service — which Huckabee can avoid by paying $100. Huckabee will be on probation for a year. Fines and costs totaled $855.
The son of the former Arkansas governor held a concealed weapons permit at the time of the incident but state police are taking steps to revoke it. The elder Huckabee, who said last week that Virginia Tech gunman Seung-Hui Cho perhaps could have been stopped if a teacher or student had also been armed, also has a concealed weapons permit.
I for one am long through letting wingnuts off the hook for the stupid, reckless and utterly irresponsible things they do and say.
Long through with extending a compassionate heart to member of a Party that believes only in slash and slander politics. That nurture and harvest hate and fear as means to electoral ends.
If you want a little understanding for the fuck ups you and your idiot kid make, then you can fucking well store up some treasure in that account by extending a little understanding to your fellow man, but I am all done giving the benefit of the doubt to any member of the Party that has risen to power by beating up the poor, throatpunching the weak, mocking the outsider and calling people like me unAmerican.
Fuck you, Huckabee.
Trying to carry a loaded weapon onto an aircraft should presumptively be considered a credible threat of aggression.
And in a post-9/11 world? Are you kidding me? You do remember 9/11, don’t you Mike, or can you Republicans only manage to recall the 11th of September when you need to slander Democrats?
And by your own lights justice and public safety demands that such a threat of violence be met by the swift and massive preemptive firepower of a heavily armed mob of Quickdraw McCitizens.
Sorry, Mike, but in the Concealed Carry America of your dreams your kid would've been shot to bits under a righteous hail of preemptive Second Amendment lead.
As dead as Amadu Dialo.
Your rules, Mike
Your rules, not mine.
