    I've borrowed heavily from a piece written by Ann Coulter to provide an example text that can be sent to papers and news departments that others have already provided the contact information for. Please try to personalize the material so duplication is avoided as much as possible. (Avoid ranting as it will only be used against us.)

    On the day of the shooting at Virginia Tech, many in the media were already promoting "gun control" and denouncing anyone who might point out that some gun control measures help madmen like Cho Seung-hui rather than stopping them.

    Virginia Tech went further than the Commonwealth of Virginia and prohibited faculty, staff and students who had completed the required training and background checks to earn their concealed-carry permits from carrying their guns on campus. Last year, the school even disciplined a student for carrying a gun legally on campus, despite his lawful concealed-carry permit. If only the university had allowed someone like Professor Librescu to have a gun in Norris Hall on Monday, this massacre might have ended much sooner.

    But instead, the Virginia General Assembly shot down a bill that would have stopped universities like Virginia Tech from giving mass murderers free reign on Virginia college campuses by disarming students, staff and faculty with concealed-carry permits valid in the rest of the state.

    Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hincker even praised the legislature for allowing the school to disarm lawful gun owners on the faculty and student body, thereby surrendering every college campus in the state to deranged mass murderers, saying: "I'm sure the university community is appreciative of the General Assembly's actions because this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus."

    Others disagreed. Writing last year about another dangerous killer who had been loose on the Virginia Tech campus, graduate student Jonathan McGlumphy wrote: "Is it not obvious that all students, faculty and staff would have been safer if (concealed handgun permit) holders were not banned from carrying their weapons on campus?"

    If it wasn't obvious then, it is now.
