If just one sane person in that lecture hall had been armed ....

Academia needs to rethink their no guns policies. It's not working.

This scene has happened too many times...and this one won't be the last. I could agree that teachers and professors should be allowed to carry firearms, and be trained on what to do.

Chomp, the way to protect students AND innocent adults from A/holes like these is to allow them to defend themselves, IMHO.

Fairestwitness...I wouldn't want to think everyone at school had a gun, but if I were a student these days...I would want to carry a gun!

I understand your objection, but we have to trust one another. Think about what soldiers do in battle, they trust each other to protect them. That is the only way we are going to stop the carnage. The cowards who perpetrate these acts are counting on their targets, their victims being unarmed. It's why they are able to carry it off. We've got to stop being sitting ducks. Otherwise these evil bastards win.
