Gun Nuts

Face some blowback

One month after the deadliest shooting by one individual in U.S. history, two Virginia gun shop owners held a raffle to give away free guns.

"Guns in the hands of decent law-abiding citizens is a good thing," one of the shop owners said. "In my opinion, you can't have too many of those kinds of guns."

But two guns in the hands of a mentally disturbed student, who had been law-abiding, were too much for the victims of the Virginia Tech shootings.

Outside the event, photos of the victims were held up next to signs calling for more gun control.
