    Report: Virginia Tech too slow to spread word about shooter

    http://www.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/12/10/....html?hpt=Sbin

    Virginia Tech violated federal campus security law when it waited too long to inform students about a shooter on the loose during a 2007 rampage that killed 32 people, the U.S. Department of Education says in a new report.

    The report, released Thursday, says the school did not notify students in a "timely manner" -- as dictated by the Clery Act -- of a dorm-room shooting that left two people dead on the morning of April 16, 2007.

    The same shooter, identified as 23-year-old Cho Seung-Hui, went to the university's Norris Hall more than two hours later and killed 30 more people before turning the gun on himself.
    This next quote makes me angry. They will not do the one thing that would be the most effective...allow CC on campus. I'd like to know what "changes" they are talking about. My guess is diddly.

    "While Virginia Tech failed to adequately warn students that day, we recognize that the university has put far-reaching changes in place since that time to help improve campus safety and better protect its students and community."
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    "ar-reaching"..... first class requirements should be an NRA course and getting their CCL.

    Umm....DUH!?

    So, should we wait and see if the University does better next time? or should they allow adults to legally conceal carry on college campuses?

    It'd be a LOT quicker to just hand out Glocks.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.
