Informed and aware

The best protection for any potential emergency is to be informed and aware. This was a statement from UNCW. Seems to be unsigned. I think it's best to be armed, legal, and proficient. Of course you can always wait for Rosemary DePaolo to purse whip an intruder. How many safe rooms are there for students? Be proactive, don't wait for trouble. Do something concrete. God knows college is expensive, hire more campus police. Take some of the bloat out of professors salaries and spend on real,preventative measures. Allow licensed concealed carry individuals. "which cover areas of law enforcement response and familiarization with campus-wide emergency notification systems. Students are also encouraged to report any suspicious individuals or activity to UNCW Police" Excellent plan. Sounds good to me. NOW SERIOUSLY, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO TO PREVENT TROUBLE? It seems UNCW is more interested in land deals and acquiring property than solid action. If this is the best UNCW officials can do, it's time for a change. Anyone with a child at UNCW should demand concrete action. Preventative action, not we'll blow a siren if there's trouble. I wouldn't have signed that statement either.
