I heard that the Virginia State Legislature outlawed all guns on campuses, a year ago. If that's true, it means that even university security personnel, and campus police were disarmed. And, if that's true, it means that students became helpless victims of any armed nut that decides to kill students. Leaving a campus totally unprotected, if that was done, should ID such legislators as the fools that they are. This reminds me of the nut that walked through a Long Island train executing passengers, as he went along. And, doing so with the full knowledge that none of the passengers had a concealed weapon, since gun ownership in New York is illegal. The plane hijackings on 9/11, by nuts with box cutters, is another example of this stupidity (i.e., lack of forsesight). Jet liners' pilots' entry doors were so fragile, despite a long history of hijackings, that the nuts were able to easily push their way in. How difficult would it have been to reinforce the doors, and thereby secure the pilots. But, the blame game points solely at the hijackers, with hardly a hint of accusation being directed at the airline corporations, or at their regulatory government agencies. As for minimizing the killing of innocents, such as these students, how about arming some select students and professors, with concealed weapons. Staff members who have had military experience, and some select ROTC students, following sufficient training and licensing, could offer some protection in these situations, and also prehaps dissuade such nuts from acting; i.e., they'd never know who among their intended victims is armed.
