    I saw somewhere in the last two days that there are only about 30 CCW holders among VT' 28,000+ students and professors. So the likelihood of a CCW holder being among the attacked would have been extremely small.

    "You will fail 100% of the time you do not try."

    This phrase can be applied to your argument, Texas Yankee. While I agree that the chances of any of the CCW holders among VT's population coming across the shooter during that fiasco, there are chances, as opposed to the way it currently is, where there is 0% chance that anyone could have stopped this maniac's actions.

    I'll bet when classes resume there will be people on campus with concealed weapons.

    30 out of 28,000 is about 0.1%. In my state, 0.1% of the population has a CCW permit.

    Pretty good when you think that the college population is in the 17-21 year old group, and I assume 21years is the age limit for a CCW.... So 0.1% of total, but perhaps 0.4% of elligible ?

    Shame either way. But the numbers show that 0.1% of the populace with CCW will deter crime.
