    University to review policy after students punished for scaring intruder with gun | Fox News

    This has to be my favorite quote from the article...

    The school's president says Gonzaga is "a Jesuit institution dedicated to thoughtful evaluation of complex social issues," and that it will use the incident to re-examine its policy on guns.
    I suppose (if) I am ever threatened by a BG with ill intentions towards me; I will have to ask him to come back later
    so he and I can both have time to "thoughtfully" consider if his actions and my response are appropriate.

    This..This is one of the major problems in our country today..The educational system. Here we have the PRESIDENT of a major institution of higher learning
    spouting this sort of socialist dribble which totally defies logical thought.

    I think this is the third thread on this incident, but it comes down to: university property--university rules. Gonzaga can decide the fate of its rule without our interference. We have no more right to claim GU has to allow guns than we do in claiming the Catholic Church has to open a birth control clinic.

    We have freedom of choice, whether that is where we live and the conditions imposed or anything else.

    While we may think the policy is asinine, the housing they were living in is University owned, and they signed an agreement to follow school policy.

    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
