    Shooting at Virginia Tech, shooter still at large.

    Someone got shot at Virginia Tech college. The shooter got away (so far).

    People are going to die because of backwards logic. Lets ban guns on campus so no one can shoot anyone else, because you can't shoot anyone without a gun right...

    To save you the time, this is their CCW policy

    from http://www.policies.vt.edu/5616.pdf

    "2.2 Prohibition of Weapons
    The university’s employees, students, and volunteers, or any visitor or other third party attending a sporting,
    entertainment, or educational event, or visiting an academic or administrative office building or residence hall, are
    further prohibited from carrying, maintaining, or storing a firearm or weapon on any university facility, even if the owner has a valid permit, when it is not required by the individual’s job, or in accordance with the relevant
    University Student Life Policies."

    Current count is 1 dead, 17 wounded, one gunman in custody, but shootings occurred at opposite ends of the campus, so there was more than one shooter. Apparently there have also been multiple bomb threats on campus within the past month too.

    Holy hell, this is horrible, I have heard that they were reporting automatic weapon fire, whether from the gunmen or the swat/police, who knows. I doubt a handgun was the weapon used..

    Just too horrible....

    Gun bill gets shot down by panel
    Jan 21, 2006
    HB 1572, which would have allowed handguns on college campuses, died in subcommittee.
    By Greg Esposito 381-1675

    A bill that would have given college students and employees the right to carry handguns on campus died with nary a shot being fired in the General Assembly.

    House Bill 1572 didn't get through the House Committee on Militia, Police and Public Safety. It died Monday in the subcommittee stage, the first of several hurdles bills must overcome before becoming laws.

    The bill was proposed by Del. Todd Gilbert, R-Shenandoah County, on behalf of the Virginia Citizens Defense League. Gilbert was unavailable Monday and spokesman Gary Frink would not comment on the bill's defeat other than to say the issue was dead for this General Assembly session.

    Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hincker was happy to hear the bill was defeated. "I'm sure the university community is appreciative of the General Assembly's actions because this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus."

    Del. Dave Nutter, R-Christiansburg, would not comment Monday because he was not part of the subcommittee that discussed the bill.

    Most universities in Virginia require students and employees, other than police, to check their guns with police or campus security upon entering campus. The legislation was designed to prohibit public universities from making "rules or regulations limiting or abridging the ability of a student who possesses a valid concealed handgun permit ... from lawfully carrying a concealed handgun."

    The legislation allowed for exceptions for participants in athletic events, storage of guns in residence halls and military training programs.

    Last spring a Virginia Tech student was disciplined for bringing a handgun to class, despite having a concealed handgun permit. Some gun owners questioned the university's authority, while the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police came out against the presence of guns on campus.

    In June, Tech's governing board approved a violence prevention policy reiterating its ban on students or employees carrying guns and prohibiting visitors from bringing them into campus facilities.
