Sure glad those people that run the place are smart enough to know this will never happen on a college campus. Thank god they got it under control and normal citizens don’t have to carry and protect ourselves
It must have been a misunderstanding. If he'd known the university was a gun free zone he would have taken his gun somewhere else.
Will the antis ever wake up?!
It just keeps proving true how idiotic the administrators are.

I thought they'd figured out how to legislate against these types of incidents in Kalifornia already (eyes rolling).
Never let the facts stand in the way of a good argument.
It's a shame and I'm saddened to see this happen, I feel the people there (administrators, legislators and the voters) have some responsibility in this tragedy for continuing to empower the criminal with more freedom, while tying the hands of responsible citizens.
I don't think the solution is stricter laws for the honest citizen, I think it's more about solving this with laws the criminals would hate.
Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
Rest assured this will be another tragedy spun by the antis.

I fail to seem to understand the “educated” part of our society that fails to see the simple dangers
It is a shame that those in control still do not understand the concept of 'gun free zones' and the harm they cannot prevent.
Several armed CCW permitted individuals in the crowd could have perhaps saved some of those lives.:bandhead:

The problem is, they (administrators) are FAR more interested in being RIGHT than anything else. The LAST thing they want is to be proven wrong. They believe guns are inherently evil and they refuse to believe any other way.
I'm speaking of administrators and liberal professors across America, and not specifically those in this small Korean school. I know Korea (been there several times), and crime over there is non-existent compared to here. In their culture, no one really needs a gun (not to say NEVER, but really they don't). They have a MUCH better grip on the problem than we do. For one thing, in their K-12 they put the fear in those students, that if they are bad they will pay! We used to do that -- but we stopped.
Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.
It is this (school shooting) sort of thing that sickens and angers me. I do not understand this mindset at all. I accept that it is out there but I will never understand why.

Reading the news stories, I am amazed at the number of adults who are willing to admit that they heard the shooting and hid. They almost seem proud of their response. We have effectively neutered society. We need more attitudes like flight 92, "Let's Roll!" Even though this guy was armed, a couple of willing people could have taken him down and at least reduced the fatalities. What happened to all our heros? We use to have everyday heors who would do what needed to be done whether it benefited them or not. Now everyone just wants to run and hide. Together, with selfless acts, we can be so much better.
