from the other thread..
in nearby Idaho, the Idaho legislature is trying to pass a bill that would allow college students to carry a side arm.. they would have to have a conceled weapons permit of course. but the thought is that if a student was armed when a armed gunmen entered the school campus and starting shooting at other students and staff, then he could be taken out right away, thereby lessening the amount of people getting shot.
I'm not saying this is right or wrong.. but it has both positive and negative factors associated with it.
please don't make this a big debate on gun control... just talk about it sensibly.
