CBS's Cohen Sees 'Irony' in Gun Control Measures Not Working

April 17th, 2007 5:15 PM

Perhaps a sign of how blind the liberally-biased media are to arguments from gun rights advocates, CBS's Andrew Cohen wrote in his Washington Post "Bench Conference" blog that "There Is Irony in the Tragedy at Virginia Tech."

I learned from CBS News' Armen Keteyian that school administrators and college officials at Virginia Tech had in fact implemented reasonable security measures (against the wishes of state legislators) designed to limit guns on campus. In other words, even though the university was relatively proactive in confronting the problem of guns on campus, the brutal slayings occurred anyway.

Actually, that's not so much irony as the law of unintended consequences, something that any pro-gun rights advocate could tell Cohen. I've not seen a worse definition of irony since Alanis Morissette wrote a song about it. (continued...)

How about this for "irony," Mr. Cohen? Some thoughts on the Virginia Tech shootings from liberals who favor gun rights (pro-gun progressives).

Update: Heck, why not. Since YouTube has "Ironic," enjoy:
