View Full Version : Letter from VA TECH Student on Digg.com

Not sure if you guys are familiar with Digg.com but basically it is a news service where the users submit articles and/or basically vote for articles they like. For a better explanation go here;


So basically the more diggs (votes) an article gets, the more people will see it because it will go to the front page of different sections of Digg.

I saw this article on there today where a student at VA Tech who had a CCW permit was talking about how he felt being disarmed while on campus.


If we can get enough people to register (takes less then a minute and they dont spam at all) and digg this article then, hopefully, we can get the message out to the millions of people who use digg.com that this tragedy could have been minimized and gun control isn't the answer. In fact, gun control caused the deaths of many of those students.

Digg.com has millions of users and the majority are less then 35. I think this service could provide us with the opportunity to let them know that what the gun grabber lib media says isn't true.

We can submit articles or web sites and get the folks here at Calguns to vote for them. I think this could be a very useful medium for showing a large number of people that firearms are not evil.

What do you guys think?

Do a search on "gun Control" or "Assault Weapon". Various stories, either anti or pro gun, will come up. You can Digg the pro gun ones and bury (which is kind of like an anti vote) the anti gun ones.

Here is another pro gun article;

dugg and commented.

You guys should know that commenting also raises a digg closer to front page. Maybe some of us should get into an "argument" in the comments section... :D
