Gonzaga University in Spokane has a policy: no guns on campus.
This is a policy that says: “A deranged terrorist with guns must be dealt with verbally by students until the campus police show up.”
The university of course has a policy of expelling any deranged terrorist who is enrolled. Any Gonzaga student who shoots other Gonzaga students on campus is in clear violation of the school’s no-gun policy. This is a no-tolerance policy.
If he kills Gonzaga students off campus, it is not strictly a university matter, but the practice of killing students off campus is frowned on. He risks immediate expulsion. Such violations will be taken up on a case-by-case basis.
Two students who lived in a university-owned apartment off campus used a gun to fend off an intruder, a felon who had been convicted six times. When he barged into their apartment, they pointed a gun at him, and they politely asked him to leave. He left.
Then they called the campus cops. The campus cops confiscated their gun, and the school may expel them.
Once again, a university’s administration has demonstrated its commitment to political correctness. It has announced: “Students’ safety must be sacrificed to the gun control movement, which dominates academia.”
This lets mentally deranged terrorists know that they can bag a lot more victims on campuses than anywhere else. Campus cops are not prepared for this kind of situation. The students are defenseless.
Any terrorist can run a cost-benefit analysis, and know where he can get the most bang for his buck.
Any student can live at home and earn a bachelor’s degree at an accredited university by distance learning for under $15,000, total. Anyone in the family can legally use a gun to resist an invader. No one has to call the campus police for protection.
I recommend this. It’s cheap. It’s accredited. It’s safe. And you don’t have to deal with academic deans with backbones made of silly putty.
