Got a link for that story? Was concealed carry even involved? Was the shooter breaking already-existing laws or school rules with the weapon? Could people carrying legally have prevented some of the violence?

Oh goody concealed weapons on a university campus. Might I suggest the morons that came up with this concept visit a certain university in Virginia and see how the people there react to this dimwitted concept.

Hey Ernest, did the killer there have a concealed carry permit? I'm betting not.

All of you people who are against conceald carry should realize that it protects you too. You always forget that bad people will have guns after you take them away from good people. Wake up folks, there is a real world out there and there are no rules!

It is like I said earlier. Tell ya what, "dimwits"! IF, a horrible tragedy happens on a Missouri Campus such as did at Virginia Tech, you people against concealed weapons carry on campus will stand up and take responsibility for the loss of innocent life during such a tragedy by taking away a means of defense to such a tragedy, I'll not make another post about this issue...
