Ominous

“I’m sure the university community is appreciative of the General Assembly’s actions because this will help parents, students, faculty and visitors feel safe on our campus.”

“[I]t is absolutely mind-boggling to see the opinions of Bradford Wiles…Wiles tells us that he didn’t feel safe with the hundreds of highly trained officers armed with high powered rifles encircling the building and protecting him. He even implies that he needed his sidearm to protect himself.”

“The writer would have us believe that a university campus, with tens of thousands of young people, is safer with everyone packing heat. Imagine the continual fear of students in that scenario. We’ve seen that fear here, and we don’t want to see it again…Guns don’t belong in classrooms. They never will. Virginia Tech has a very sound policy preventing same.”

-Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hincker after a bill was defeated in the General Assembly that would have given law abiding Students and Faculty the ability to carry a handgun on campus with a valid, state issued, concealed carry permit.
