  • its a very sad world

    As bad as I don’t want to make crazy assunptions, this already mimics the columbine tragedy. Why would they have guns and alcohol on campus? Sadly these days you can’t put it past anyone. I am glad they were caught before anything could happen even if it was not their initial intentions.

  • The media is wrong

    the student that had the guns had his daughter in his arms all day he is a good friend of mine and honestly forgot that they were in his truck

    …you don’t FORGET anything.

    You know where it is at any given moment. You know if it’s loaded or unloaded. You know the serial number, or have it written down where it can be quickly retrieved.

    Owning and using a firearm is more than a right – it entails responsibility. Your friend made a very careless mistake and unless he manages to plead down to a misdemeanor, he may neevr be able to legally own a firearm again.
