    Armed Robbery in University of TN Residence Hall (Gun Free Zone)

    I'm a student at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. We have a text message alert system and I just received this from it:

    UT Alert Suspects armed with a handgun last seen in Reese Hall. Unknown direction of travel. Two of three suspects arrested no gun found

    1. Handgun permit holders can neither carry nor leave their CCW in their vehicle.
    2. I received my text 4 minutes after someone else received the same text. That'd be 4 minutes of me on campus not knowing some maniac has gone on a shooting spree.


    The local news has reported it as an armed robbery on the 6th floor.

    Makes you feel real safe, eh?

    Perhaps someone should have sent the 'memo' to the dirtbags about no guns on campus.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    ...but with the text message alert system in place, you're now safe and have nothing to worry about....right?
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.

    I work on a university campus and we usually get one of these kind of message a week from our department of security. Alot of them are just people 'aggressively' begging for money. I've noticed they've gotten alot more bold with the down turn of the economy. Only a matter of time until a couple students get stabbed or shot for their ipods and book bags.

    In the mean time, what are you doing to defend yourself without a firearm? Seems I see a lots of individuals crying a river over the law/university. Until the law/university changes, there are many ways to defend oneself by other means.
