"The Shooter Was Another 'Son of Sacrifice'"

In TCS Daily, Jerry Bowyer writes:

This morning I read that the Virginia Tech shooter died with the name Ismail Ax written in red ink on his arm. The mainstream press doesn’t seem to have a clue as to what this might mean. To quote Indiana Jones, “Didn’t any of you guys go to Sunday School?”

Read the whole thing.

Update: Jules Crittenden has several more VT-related links, including Glenn Reynolds’ op-ed in the New York Daily News, titled, “People don’t stop killers. People with guns do”. Here’s a sample:

“Gun-free zones” are premised on a fantasy: That murderers will follow rules, and that people like my student, or Bradford Wiles, are a greater danger to those around them than crazed killers like Cho Seung-hui. That’s an insult. Sometimes, it’s a deadly one.
