As I was listening to the radio on my commute home yesterday, I was absolutely shocked (disgusted) to hear the opinions of two callers with regard to the Virginia Tech shootings.
Their solution? Allow all students on all major campuses to carry a firearm. Even to class.
Hmmm. Yeah. That would solve everything. (Insert sarcasm here.)
I understand the thought of trying to defend yourself, but can you imagine if everyone whipped out guns in that kind of situation? Chaos would surely ensue. Accidental shootings would occur. Police officers wouldn't be sure who to arrest.
The day I walk into my University office knowing that my colleagues, and students, are armed with a weapon is the day I walk away for good.
