    I ddn't see this posted here anywhere so I'm doing so. In the comments of the above article, I posted this:

    But anti-gun people aren't likely to be thinking straight after this anyway (they usually aren't)

    This got my attention today.

    My wife just graduated fairly recently from Pitt. In the medical field.
    I thoroughly disapprove of duels.

    and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.

    I heard about this... The news said he came in with 2 weapons was in there for 15 minutes shooting at people... Killed one and injured many... Police took him out..

    I figured it was a posted area... It's sad that so many had to pay for somebody else's decision not to allow citizens to defend themselves.

    If He was shooting for 15 minutes and they are crediting the Campus Cops with a fast response...exactly what would a slow response entail 30 minutes,or an hour.
    One person posted that Cops are usually hanging out at that facility,To be honest they are lucky that there weren't a lot more victims.This is my one Pet Peeve ,Hospitals down here are posted with legal 30.06 signs against carrying

    In the story here:

    Pitt. gunman's photo may be released to help ID - CBS News

    There is a quote which I couldn't have made fit any better to what I posted earlier. The quote was:

    "We were kind of sitting ducks," Brant said. "Luckily, he didn't see us in there, and we didn't make eye contact with him."

    Anywhere that the BG can be armed because he will not follow the law, and you are unarmed because you do follow the law, is just a stupid place to be, regardless of the reason.
