Lie In, Die In

The WaPo reported a protest staged Sunday by 32 women representing the victims of the Virginia Tech shootings. One of the leaders of the protest, Abigail Spangler, "decided to organize a women's 'lie-in/die-in' that would last only a few minutes, 'representing the amount of time it took for the shooter to buy his gun in the United States.'" This is the second protest. The first was staged on April 22 in front of the Alexandria City Hall.

They have a point, though, since they want to make getting a gun license at least as hard as it is to get a driver's license. The last time I checked they were both considered deadly weapons in court.
