Same if I had a pistol on me as the first victim doesn't stand a chance whether he is sitting with a uzi or is Jet Li.

    Violence that pops up in the most unlikely places is always going to shock us. It is almost impossible to avoid. Some people just don't have that ability to respond quickly. Nobody really knows how one would react. I like to think I would figure I am dead anyway and charged her. Just as the old adage says," charge a gun and run from a knife" you may have a chance.

    Had my neighbor's house catch on fire few years back. They were just mumbling zombies as I ran over and got in their car to back it down out of the driveway away from the roaring fire so it didn't catch and also to allow better access for the firemen.
    Your dead on on this comment, those who can survive circumstances like this are the ones you have survived the first circumstance, then again maybe not,.

    No, not for every student, simply in the area of every student.
    2-3 guards per building and you're covering the entire area in a response time of mere seconds.
    Although when the rubber meets the road, it all depends on your ability and capability to act in a extreme stressful situation. This requires training on the same level as law enforcement and military, and a constant practice of it for your average Joe.
    My thought as well.

    Any word on her mental state?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Why not? 40 states now have "shall issue" (easy to get) concealed carry permits, and NONE of those states have expereinced the "wild west bloodbath" predicted by CCW opponents.

    Concealed carry in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    North Carolina reports only 0.2% of their 263,102 holders had their license revoked in the 10 years since they have adopted the law.[61]

    Permit holders are a remarkably law-abiding subclass of the population. Florida, which has issued over 1,408,907 permits in twenty one years, has revoked only 166 for a "crime after licensure involving a firearm," and fewer than 4,500 permits for any reason.[62]
    There is no reason to believe that allowing responsible 21+ yo adults who have gone to the trouble of getting a CCW to carry on campus would result in trouble, than has been the case with the general population in 40 states that have shall-issue permits.

    Allowing this would raise the chance of someone being able to give an armed response to such crimes in a timely fashion, by some percentage.

    .


    So if Seung-Hui Cho had gotten a CCW permit he would have been legal right up to the point where he killed 32 people.

    He WAS legal up to the point where he killed people. He bought his guns legally. To be honest, nothing save maybe a mental evaluation would have stopped him from getting guns legally, he was a normal law abiding guy. No reasonable gun measure I can think of would really have stopped him.
