So what would GKC say about the Virginia Tech shootings? I'm not sure he ever addressed the issue of gun control, though I found this at Roy Moore's Distributist Review:
"[A] disarmed public is one that is easily controlled. Neither Belloc nor Chesterton advocated gun control during their day. And neither do we."
I don't have much time to research GKC's thoughts on societal violence, mass murders, or anything else at this point. The comments are open. If you want to see my initial thoughts about the incident, you can go to The Daily Eudemon.
