    You can't guarantee that a student packing heat will be one step closer than a police officer. Nobody knows where or when these events are going to happen. That's a lame excuse for an argument.

    Ok, that's an inaccurate statement.

    Are TECH police roaming the halls?

    I think not.

    Not necessarily inaccurate - a shooter who pops up in an FCS or PE class would probably have a better chance of facing unarmed students (with or without available legal permission) than, say, the forestry department, right? Not all students would carry even if they could.

    Are the police officers located in the gym?

    I doubt it. But if no one in the gym has a gun, then the next (sane) person to show up at the gym with a gun is probably going to be a police officer.

    Alright, maybe we should ask the question differently.

    If you were stuck in the same room with an active shooter and he was between you and the door, you're thinking...
    A) I'm glad the police will be here quickly.
    B) I wish I had some means to defend myself.

    If there are any other options left out, please let me know.

    The guy taking a dump in the locker room can get to his registered handgun quicker than the police can respond.

    Universitities should encourage students to obtain concealed weapons permits.

    IF he has one. I'm not arguing it is not faster for someone already in location to shoot than a cop around the corner.

    I'm not sure if it is good for concealed guns to be allowed on campuses or not (leaning towards not), but all I'm saying is that his argument stands.

    Not all students will carry, so you can't guarantee that a student will be closer than a police officer.

    Totally accurate statement.

    That's all I am trying to say.

    No. They're giving tickets to people unloading in a handicapped zone.

    Re: HB199 Pulled From Consideration

    Why do you think active shooters choose college campuses, high schools, churches, and hospitals for their activities?

    The only reason is because they are target rich areas that are GUN FREE zones, which makes it much easier for them to shoot actively!
    I'm an asshole! What's your excuse?

    I tried to get a concealed carry permit once, but I got a note that there was a little problem holding it up.

    Ah. You beat me to it.
    Jordan Mills on choosing Tech:
    Its a great experience seeing them play. It was a good atmosphere. The fans stood up the whole game and never sat down. They have a great fan base.
