Because the gunman died, the full story of Monday’s shocking rampage at a dorm and an engineering classroom at Virginia Tech may never be known. The timeline raises tough questions for officials at the school in Blacksburg, Va. As the massacre rattles college students and their parents nationally, the incident will spur new debates about campus security. Such horrific crimes probably will always happen in a free society, even in a time of terrorism. But count on many international observers especially to see Monday’s violence the same way they saw Columbine — as the price of America’s gun rights. Is that fair?
