    It's just not the place or it. Brains are not fully developed until the late twenties, so stupid is common. Stupid worries me more than criminal.

    Regarding the collage this thread is about, as of fall 2012:

    LoneStar Collage Student Demographics
    3.jpg
    That's 38% of the student body who do not met your criteria. I trust you make exception for them, and military veterans.

    As of 2009:
    Average Student Age on the Rise

    The average student age in the U.S. has been climbing steadily in recent years. At both Harvard and Notre Dame the average age is now 27. The University of Phoenix, which offers both online and traditional degree programs, has an average student age of 35-37. On a larger scale thirty-eight percent of all college students are now 25 or older, according to a recent U.S Census Bureau report. So why has the average age been trending upward? There are several factors that have contributed to a more mature scholar.
    I project that you also object to <25y/o police officers carrying a service pistol.

    That means 62% do.

    Why would I object to police officers carrying? I don't see the connection.

    Btw, this shooting seems to support my concern. Two gun carries got into a gun fight over bumping into each other as I understand it.

    I believe that's not correct because 39% of the student body cannot carry a concealed hand gun at all, as they are under the legal age to own a hand gun or have a permit.

    23% of the student body can legally carry and fall under your age concern.*
    38% of the student body can legally carry and do not fall under your age concern.

    Given that data, I would ask you to reconsider your position.

    If the age of the person with the gun is your concern, then it follows that a police officer in that same age group would also be a concern to you.

    *There is some number of students in the 20-25 age group who, by virtue of being under 21, cannot legally own or posses a hand gun. I was unable to find an exact number of these students so they were lumped in with the 23% for the sake of simplicity. I do not believe the point of my post is affected by this number.

    ****
    Additionally, of those who are outside of your age concern, a small number will be ineligible for a permit due to criminal history, past chemical dependence or default on student loans (financial irresponsibility disqualifies you for a CCW in TX). Of the remaining population who are outside of your age concern and who can get a permit, most generally do not. This policy will not result in every student suddenly being armed. We're talking about a sub-set of a sub-set of a sub-set of the whole student body.

    Only one person had a gun in this event. He shot his victim, a bystander, and himself.
