How High Must the Body-Count Go?

When a member of the NRA's Board of Directors puts his foot in it and says something that can be used by the Anti's, we bloggers get riled up and spread the news far and wide.

This time I would like to "spread the news" about an NRA board member's commentary that I wholeheartedly support.

Charles L. Cotton is a Texas member of the NRA board, he has started a blog, and posted this:

...The issue is clear and there can be no intellectually honest debate. “Gun free school zones” are killing people in alarming numbers and we are long past the time when the law must be changed. This issue will come up in the Texas Legislature in the 2009 Legislative Session and our elected officials need to follow the lead of Texas Governor Rick Perry and Indiana Senator Johnny Nugent. We trust CHLs to carry defensive handguns virtually everywhere else in the State; it’s time to say lives are just as valuable on university campuses as they are off campus.

To those who oppose this change I ask, how high must the body-count go, before you put politics and prejudice aside and vote to save lives?
As you can see, it is well worth the read.
