    This happened 271 miles south of me. I attended this university a while back and it saddens me deeply. Check out any of the top news reports and you will see reports on the nations deadliest school shooting.

      "A bill that would have given college students and employees the right to carry handguns on campus died with nary a shot being fired in the General Assembly..."

      "Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hincker was happy to hear the bill was defeated. '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'"

      ...

      "In June, Tech's governing board approved a violence prevention policy reiterating its ban on students or employees carrying guns and prohibiting visitors from bringing them into campus facilities."

            How did this happen? I thought the campus was a gun free zone?

              The college campus that I work at is gun free too, but that does not stop guns, drugs, knifes, and hypodermic needles that the street culture brings on our property. Unlike New York schools, we don’t screen students and visitors at the door.

                Understood. My comment was tounge in cheek.

                  I have to say that the number of people that approached me at work asking what I thought of the massacre today was interesting. My first thought was WTF do you think I think about it? It was god dam horrible and sad. These same people didn’t give a s&&t what I thought about anything yesterday and seldom even smiled without forcing it. But today they see a gun and a badge and they are confused and scared s&&tlees for their own safety and somewhere deep down inside want me to protect them from the demons in their heads.

                  As I have stated in previous post I am a trained armed security officer that knows what to do as far as security of others go. So they put 2 females in charge of how I should man my post. Neither one has an once of security experience in them. Although I'm sure they are very competent in what ever it is they do.

                  That being said people are wanting the president at V Tech to step down because he didn’t act as a trained sworn police officer. I would guess that he also does not have an once of police training on him and if anyone should be held accountable it should be the head of the on scene command as he should call the shots concerning Who, What and Where. All information to the president would come from the police officer in charge. Albeit campus or civil. If you think I sound a little angry then you would be Fin right.
                  So dam unnecessary and evil.

                    Most people consider the USA to BE an armed society. Where is the politeness?

                      I can understand you being upset if your supervisors don't know anything about security but what does their gender have to do with it? You seem to be implying that females can not be in charge of security. It's the 00's not the 60's!!!!

                        This is the previous post to which I refer. I really wish that you could have taken more away from my post than the fact that I mentioned the gender of the supervisors. You may have missed it but I referred to the President as he.

                        Political Correctness offends me. Please respect my feelings

                            There is no problem in a school more difficult to deal with than an active shooter.

                            There will be a lot of lessons learned from this tragedy but also a lot of fingerpointing and second guessing. I personally will refrain from commenting until more concrete info is made available.

                            For those active in the security of our schools, I wish you the best- it is a difficult task to secure an environment that by its nature should be open and inviting. You are protecting our most valuable assets.
