I do not know if this has been posted. I went to Trinity University in the 70's and am glad of this outcome. I was a member of the ROTC rifle team and no one panicked when I carried my Anchutz rifle to the Van for away matches. All to often people jump to the wrong conclusions.

I think this is great--not the dean of students threatening "zero tolerance" unreasonable rule--but that the student's threat to the security of the campus was reasonably appraised and reasonably responded to. That said, the kid got very, very lucky. He should certainly know better--dorm's are not a secure place to store your firearms, they could have been stolen. :)

That said...

"It just seems like we are way too lenient and no one has to be responsible for their actions anymore," McLellan said. "What's even scarier is to think he might be back on campus."

Why is this young man frightening? Did he threaten this person, did he do anything to imply that he would harm that individual? That is an absurd insecurity. It's irrational people like these that drag us rational ones down... :(

But, this is good news. The young man was served justice: he was absolved of all non-wrong doing. :cool:

Talk about over reacting and official stupidity:

David Tuttle, Trinity's dean of students, said two other Trinity students were punished this semester for similar offenses. In one case, a student on the university's target shooting team left a shotgun in a car. In the second incident, a student brought two shotgun cartridges to a dorm room after a hunting trip

The grand jury used common sense and made the correct decision.

Makes me proud to live in the Alamo City. I remember this. Glad the grand jury (made up of Bexar County residents) saw through the BS and no billed the kid!

Now if common sense would prevail in the future...

Hoin, a Russian history buff, used the guns for a Red Army battle re-enactment and brought them to his room while cleaning it out for the holidays.

Police also found 440 rounds of ammunition in Hoin's vehicle

MN and a spam can of 7.62x54r?

I'm glad he didn't get charged with a felony over this, as he could have lost his guns for good. Good on the jury too.
