John Derbyshire: National Review Blogger, Total Badass

Talking about the Virginia shootings, John Derbyshire shows how tuff he his:
Setting aside the ludicrous campus ban on licensed conceals, why didn't anyone rush the guy? ....

At the very least, count the shots and jump him reloading or changing hands. Better yet, just jump him. Handguns aren't very accurate, even at close range. .... And even if hit, a .22 needs to find something important to do real damage—your chances aren't bad.
If only our colleges weren't filled with enervated, effete, effeminate kids rendered nutless by liberal professors!

Update! - Nathanial Blake agrees with JD, those students were total pussies!
College classrooms have scads of young men who are at their physical peak, and none of them seems to have done anything beyond ducking, running, and holding doors shut. ....

Something is clearly wrong with the men in our culture. Among the first rules of manliness are fighting bad guys and protecting others: in a word, courage. And not a one of the healthy young fellows in the classrooms seems to have done that.
Oh, the wretched state of manliness in America!
