naturally it sucks, it's tragic, and naturally everyone's up in arms (sorry for the pun) about guns. were carrying concealed made legal on university grounds and ok with school policy, i'd save up the $$, buy a carry piece, and start carrying. my university is not unlike VT in the sense that there's not a lot of diversity, and should anything happen i can imagine a lot of the airhead students here just being mindless and letting themselves be executed. now, i wasn't at VT when everything went down but i'd have to believe that many of them just sat in class and were executed. no one's talked about the people that were shot in the back because they were running away, sadly no one tried to use their books, desks, pens, etc. as weapons. after columbine i thought of exit routes for every single one of my classes. i kinda did the same this week but i also started thinking about how i could do anything to stop further losses of life should the SHTF at my school.
