    WASHINGTON (AFP) - The powerful US gun lobby, far from being weakened by last week's tragic college campus shooting, actually has emerged stronger, gun advocates said, stepping up calls Sunday for a better-armed US citizenry to prevent future attacks...

    "This is a huge nail in the coffin of gun control," said Philip Van Cleave, president of the gun rights group Virginia Citizens Defense League.

    "They had gun control on campus and it got all those people killed, because nobody could defend themselves," he told AFP.

    "You want people to be able to defend themselves -- always," he said.

    Huge nail in the coffin of gun control !!

    That shooter was a strange one;
    he would put a ? question mark instead of his name .

    That college course was a strange one he studied;
    horror movies/books.
